Low Carb Sausage Stuffing


Low carb sausage stuffing is a comfort food that shouldn’t only be enjoyed during the holidays.  Make this easy keto recipe the next time you roast a chicken.  

However, this is one killer Thanksgiving side dish that you’ll obsess over this holiday season.

Insanely Delicious Low Carb Sausage Stuffing



You don’t need to cheat when you’re craving stuffing.  Instead, grab a loaf of keto bread and get ready to make the ultimate Thanksgiving side that won’t blow your carb goals.  

This is one delicious keto comfort dish that you’re going to make again and again.

There are many low-carb bread options, where do you buy yours?

Here’s a list of 3 popular options:

  1. Arnold makes great keto bread.  In fact, this is the one I used for this recipe.  I think this is the most commonly found loaf in my area.  But, as with things that are in demand and considered special, you’ll pay almost $7 for this if you live in my area.  I hope you can find it cheaper somewhere else!
  2. L’oven Fresh is a great option if you have an Aldi’s in your neighborhood.  It also won’t break the bank.
  3. The Sola Bread Company is not going to be cheap, but you’re going to love their options.  Head to their site and you’ll find Golden Wheat, Honey Wheat, Rustic Wheat, and even a Blueberry Bread.  All keto-friendly!

Will you let your bread go stale on the counter?

According to Epicurious, it’s better to dry out your bread in the oven.  Not on the counter.  This is excellent news if you didn’t plan ahead.

Cube the bread to the size you prefer and bake it in a 250-degree oven stirring it every 5 until the cubes are dry and crispy.  This should take between 15 and 30 minutes.  

The usual suspects of a sausage stuffing.

This next step is personal.  Do you want larger chunks of sausage giving it main character energy?  Or would you like it to be more fine ground?  You’ll also want to make this same decision regarding the celery, onion, and mushrooms.

You’re almost ready to make your easy low carb sausage stuffing.  Just one question left!

This may be controversial, but some people like their stuffing a bit more loose and on the dry side.  While others want a lot of moisture and all of the pieces stuck together.

If you’re the latter, mix 2 eggs with some heavy cream and pour over your stuffing before you bake it in the oven.  Add a few pats of butter on top for an over-the-top moisture combo and your finished product will be a big juicy serving of stuffing.

But don’t add too much.  The stuffing should be moist before you bake it.  There shouldn’t be any pooling liquid.

Finally, the last step is to decide if you’ll buy a keto gravy or make your own.
