This recipe is for Keto turkey stuffing made from real yeast bread. It’s a great Thanksgiving side dish with just 2g net carbs per serving.
I'm afraid that it’s that time again.
We barely survived sugar-free Halloween and suddenly every store is decked out for Christmas. Whoa there Nelly! Shouldn’t we be focussing on getting through low carb Thanksgiving first?
Let’s just try and stick with our low carb diet over Thanksgiving, and then we can talk about Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza. Because if you can’t stay on your diet through the holidays, then you’ll just feel lousy, both mentally and physically.
And I know that normal, high carb stuffing is good and all, but the Keto turkey stuffing I’m going to show you how to make today is even better.
It’s made with a bread that has zero net carbs per slice. “How? What dark magic is at work here?“ you may ask.
Well, it’s called Zero Net Carb Bread and it’s made by Thin Slim Foods.
Each slice has 7g carbs and 7g fiber, hence, 0 net carbs. I won’t lie though, it does taste a little bit funky, and is on the dry side.
But for Keto turkey stuffing, it is perfect.
Once you cut the bread into cubes, toast them, soak them in spiced chicken broth and bake them up, you will be in Keto Thanksgiving heaven.
What else is in this Keto stuffing recipe?
To make this low carb stuffing, you’ll need these more traditional ingredients: butter, onions, carrots, celery, ground sage, thyme, marjoram, salt and pepper, chicken broth and eggs.
Why do you toast the bread cubes first?
You want to get as much moisture out of the bread as you can, so it’ll absorb as much of the spiced broth as possible. So you get the nice mixture of firm browned bread on top, and a lovely mushy stuffing layer below.
How many carbs are in Keto Thanksgiving stuffing?
In normal stuffing, you are looking at around 25g net carbs per ¾ cup serving. But fear not, this low carb stuffing recipe has just 2g for the same amount. So much better.
So whether you are down with early Christmas or not…
Even if you think Thanksgiving is an appropriate place to break out your ugly Christmas sweaters (it isn’t!)…
Either way, this Keto turkey stuffing recipe has you covered.Print
