You asked for it, so here it is!  And honestly.... you will probably be amazed at just how simple this homemade keto stuffing recipe is.

The holidays can be stressful enough without the need to cook duplicate dishes- one low carb, one regular. I vowed to avoid that this year and, because stuffing is everyone's favorite I started there. My keto stuffing recipe is absolutely so simple you won't miss opening a bag or box and just adding butter and water.

Is this a Keto Dressing Recipe? 

The biggest difference between a dressing and a stuffing isn't just that one is often stuffed inside a bird.  It really is that a dressing recipe is wetter and baked in more of a casserole style versus a fluffier and slightly drier stuffing.  You can add a bit more moisture to this and make it more like a traditional dressing if desired.

Tips for Making a Keto Stuffing Recipe

The recipe uses pre-made keto bread or rolls (either store bought or homemade) so when it comes time to put together the stuffing it literally takes just minutes.  I will give you the quick version and quickest version below :

Quick version-  crumble the keto bread, drizzle with olive oil and bake for about 5 minutes until lightly browned. Saute chopped veggies in olive oil for a minute or two to bring out flavors. Mix together with melted butter and bake again.

Quickest Version-  mix crumbled keto bread with chopped veggies and melted butter. Add to dish and bake.

The difference between the two is basically just time and flavor. Sauteing the veggies will bring out more flavor and pre baking the bread will give a bit more of that crunchy stuffing everyone loves. It really is personal preference. 

The nutrition facts will vary depending on what kind of keto bread or rolls you use. I have made this with both my fathead rolls and a 1 net carb per slice bread. The nutrition label below is a VERY ROUGH ESTIMATE. It is on the high side for those who may have to use the higher carb low carb breads.

Start with your preferred low carb or keto bread. Crumble and place on a sheet pan drizzled with olive oil. Bake 5 minutes. This will dehyrdate the bread a bit more giving it a day old feel.

  1. Cannot wait to try this recipe for my Christmas dinner. Is the egg really needed or can it go without?

    • Definitely don't skip the egg, it binds everything together. You can however use just egg white.

  2. I made this because I was so tired of doing without dressing.
    I added a cooked sausage, corn off cob, yellow squash, sauté yellow onion and chopped green onion.

  3. can this be prepared day before and bake it the day of eating? not sure if that would make it soggy...ty

  4. Why does Keto Bread in stores have wheat flour in it? I have to eat Gluten Free so I have to have an alternate form of bread in order to follow the Keto Diet.

  5. I just made this stuffing this morning for lunch and dinner for my husband and myself. I am eating it now for lunch. Let me first say that I was very skeptical that this would taste good, but I was also at the same time desperate for some different sides and I have not had stuffing in about 2 years, so I made this dish and hoped for the best. Wow! This was really good. I was surprised at just how buttery it was. It tastes just like herb stuffing! The only thing I would add to make it perfect is diced onions, and my husband prefers this recipe to be pan fried a little at the end and I like it both ways.
