Keto Stuffing Recipe
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.
Making our keto stuffing recipe
(Full Recipe Card Below)
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.
When you remove the bread crumbles from the oven they should be browned and on their way to giving you that yummy crunchy stuffing.
In a bowl, mix veggies with seasoning and melted butter.
Combine all keto stuffing ingredients together and add to your favorite baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes covered with foil and 5 minutes uncovered.
This keto stuffing recipe is perfect for any holiday or stuffing mushrooms, chicken, pork. The options are endless.
