Is this Stuffing or Dressing?
A special note about this stuffing – it isn’t actually stuffed into the bird but has all the same ingredients (except in this recipe the bread is keto). This is a simplified version of stuffing that can be made to eat when a whole bird like a turkey or a chicken isn’t being served as part of the course with dinner or when a low-carb side dish is needed.
How To Make Keto Stuffing
- Cube the bread and bake in the oven (as per the recipe below).
- Sauté the butter, celery, seasoning, and onion.
- Mix together the butter and seasoning mixture along with the bread & add the broth little by little.
- Add it all to a pan and bake.
Tips For The Best Stuffing
- Cut the bread into bite-sized pieces and remember to allow it to cool completely before adding the onion and seasoning mixture.
- Make sure to add the broth slowly, just until the bread is moist, not soggy.
- Uncovering the stuffing during the last 10 minutes of cooking will allow it to become crisp and golden.
Serving and Storing
- Stuffing is not just for serving alongside its favorite companion the cooked turkey, it also tastes great with pork loin roast, or whole butterflied chicken. And don’t forget to makes some delish keto pumpkin cheesecake for dessert!
- Leftovers are so versatile also. Make some stuffing waffles, or top it with some eggs and bake it in the oven. Another option is to use it as breadcrumbs for meatballs, stuffing muffins, or stuffing balls.
- Leftovers can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
