Low Carb Stuffing

Low carb stuffing made with my keto cornbread and loads of sausage. This low carb side dish is one of my new favorite Thanksgiving sides!

I have always been a fan of Thanksgiving, mostly for the stuffing.

I mean, the rest of the food is fine. I will certainly put a little of everything on my plate. But the biggest section of my plate has always been reserved for stuffing.

I’m so excited that I don’t have to skip the stuffing this year, thanks to this low carb stuffing recipe.

I started with my low carb cornbread (there’s no actual corn in it, but you’d never guess that if you tasted it!) and then added in some sausage, onions, celery, and lots of seasoning.

This recipe is so good and will really help me stay on track this holiday! I hope you guys give it a try too!

How to make low carb stuffing:

First things first: You need to make low carb cornbread!

Whip that recipe up and let it cool.

Once the cornbread has cooled, cut it into small pieces or use your hands to crumble it into a large bowl.

I couldn’t stop picking at the cornbread pieces. It’s seriously so good!

how to make sausage dressing

Once your cornbread is ready to go, you’ll start with the sausage. Brown some sausage in a large skillet along with some celery and onions.

When the sausage is cooked through, pour that mess into a large bowl with the cornbread.

Add in some poultry seasoning and ground sage along with a handful of chopped pecans and some chicken broth.

Stir that mixture all up, taste, and add more seasoning as necessary.

Spread the mixture into a 2 quart baking dish and pop it into a hot oven for about 20 minutes.

What’s the difference between dressing and stuffing? 

Not much, aside from the fact that stuffing is stuffed inside a turkey and dressing is baked in a pan.

I use the term stuffing here because that seems to be what most people call this dish. I don’t recommend stuffing this recipe inside a bird, though.  ?
