Oh, my friends. My dear Keto friends. What if I told you I just made for real Southern-Style Keto Cornbread Stuffing? Or, as my family would call it, our new favorite Keto Thanksgiving or Keto Christmas Dressing. This low carb stuffing recipe tastes just like traditional Thanksgiving cornbread stuffing but with only 5 net carbs per serving. So, who wants me to pass the keto stuffing?
What are you serving for your Keto Christmas Dinner?
Every family does their holiday feasts a little different, but some items are standards: mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, turkey with gravy, and stuffing.
For our family, there is always the cornbread stuffing or dressing at our feast. There are a lot of styles of Thanksgiving stuffings, but I have always been partial to cornbread stuffing, with lots of herbs like sage, rosemary and thyme. Onions sauteed in butter. All mixed with diced homemade cornbread and made moist and flavorful with homemade bone broth.
For years, we’ve cooked a traditional, Southern-style cornbread stuffing for our family and our clients. While yummy, that cornbread stuffing was certainly not low carb!
Low Carb Cornbread – A Keto Bread Mix
Enter Good Dee’s Corn Free Bread mix, a wonderful low carb, gluten free cornbread mix. Baking gluten-free can be tricky, and Keto is even more so.
I tried this keto bread mix recipe recently and it turned out really good, and my kids (who are not Keto) loved it it! That’s high praise in my world, so this keto bread mix gets a thumbs up.
The Good Dee’s Bread has a nice texture, with a crumb very similar to traditional cornbread. I was honestly surprised by the texture. More importantly, it’s tasty. It has a nice cornbread sweetness that’s not overpowering even to my keto taste-buds. Keep in mind that there are no sugar alcohols in this keto cornbread mix. The bread mix uses stevia as a keto sweetener, and there is no aftertaste which I sometimes taste with stevia. Just awesome cornbread flavor. This is a keto winner.

Keto Stuffing Recipe
Starting with Good Dee’s low carb cornbread, I cubed it and toasted it the oven just like I would with traditional cornbread. It toasted nicely, so I kept moving forward with my normal preparation of Thanksgiving Dressing. I tossed in a generous amount of herbs, onions sauteed in butter, homemade bone broth and egg, and popped my keto dressing in the oven. The bread absorbed the liquid and the flavors very well, and the consistency of the whole low carb stuffing was just like my family’s old Holiday Stuffing Recipe.
This ketogenic friendly stuffing will definitely be making an appearance at our family’s Keto Thanksgiving and at our Keto Christmas! No matter where we celebrate, I’ll make a batch of this keto stuffing recipe ahead of time to share with the whole family. No need for you to feel deprived on Thanksgiving and I doubt my family will even know the difference.
