Low-carb and Keto Stuffing Guide with Recipes

By Dietdoctor @DietDoctor1

Whether you enjoy a quiet Thanksgiving with close friends and family, eat your Thanksgiving meal at a restaurant, or gather with a crowd, there is one dish certain to be on the menu - stuffing!

Recipes may vary by region and tradition, and some folks may even call it dressing. Either way, many of us find it to be our favorite Thanksgiving side dish. While traditional stuffing is made with breadcrumbs that are not low-carb or keto friendly, you can make a low-carb stuffing that will leave you feeling thankful. Here's how!

Start with your favorite low-carb bread. You can use a cornbread base as many do, or a more traditional bread such as the keto bread. You want to prepare enough of the low-carb bread or cornbread recipe to yield 3 to 4 cups of cubed bread. Dry the bread by leaving on a rack with the oven door ajar. The light from the oven will create enough heat to dry the bread cubes over several hours. Once you have dried bread cubes, you can either use your own traditional recipe or try one of the ones listed below. If you try to adapt your own traditional recipe, just remember that low-carb bread will absorb less moisture, so you may want to reduce the amount of liquid that you add.

In addition to low-carb breadcrumbs, many traditional stuffing recipes use the following ingredients, which tend to be acceptable on a low-carb or ketogenic diet:

As you can see, swapping out the bread cubes for an acceptable substitute doesn't have to be difficult. You might even discover that you love this healthier version more than the traditional stuffing that left you feeling overstuffed!

What's in your favorite stuffing? Please leave a comment below.
