Keto Dinner: Keto Thanksgiving Stuffing
When it comes to the mainstay of all thanksgiving dinners, it is of course the turkey. And the thing that makes holiday turkey all the better is the stuffing. Traditionally, stuffing is made with a combination of herbs and bread, however, for those of you under a keto diet, the bread is no good.
Fear not though, since we have a recipe that does away with the carbohydrate-rich ingredient but still keeps the integrity of fine thanksgiving stuffing.
What Makes The Stuffing
As a substitute for bread, our recipe will be using keto croutons that you can buy at your local shop. After you have them in your possession we will stir them together with Italian sausage and all kinds of vegetables. Once you have finished baking the mixture, you can then stuff it inside your turkey and bon appétit.
Keto Thanksgiving Stuffing
Prep: 10 mins | Cooking: 40 mins
- 1 pound Italian sausage
- 1/2 cup diced onions
- 1/2 cup diced carrots
- 1/2 cup diced celery
- 1/4 pound keto croutons
- 1 teaspoon kosher Salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 2-3 teaspoons poultry seasoning
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 egg
Preheat oven to 350f.
Spray a baking pan and set aside.
In a 12-inch skillet, brown the sausage, and when it’s almost done add the vegetables and cook for 2 minutes.
Pour in broth, salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning.
Add croutons and stir. Turn off the heat and cover the skillet. Allow the croutons to soften and absorb most of the water.
Meanwhile, beat the egg. Once the croutons have softened, stir in the egg.
Tip out the stuffing into the prepared baking pan.
Bake for 20-30 minutes until the stuffing has set and the top is browned.
