I don’t want to miss out on Thanksgiving stuffing just because I’m eating low carb. So I tried this keto Thanksgiving stuffing, and have to say it’s going to be a new favorite at my holiday meals. It is easy to make and has those wonderful savory, traditional Thanksgiving flavors. We used Carbquik for our recipe.

Carbquik low carb baking mix is like your regular baking mix, great for foods like biscuits and pancakes. It’s low carb and high on dietary fiber, but the flavors are very similar. I started by making a biscuit batter and added seasonings – sage, thyme, parsley – to make seasoned breadcrumbs.
Roll it out fairly thin on a baking sheet and bake it until done. Then cut the loaf and break it up into biscuit crumbs that resemble breadcrumbs. I know, it’s that simple. Bake those turning them to brown both sides and dry them out.
It’s a great Keto breadcrumb alternative, and easy to make. They will have the consistency of breadcrumbs, but it does have a more fiberous taste. But hey! You get to have stuffing on the Keto diet!
From here, it’s your basic Thanksgiving stuffing recipe. Add what you love – I like it with sautéed onions and celery. You could add sausage or giblets too if that’s your thing.
Add stock (either chicken or vegetable) and butter, enough to get it wet. Then spread it in a dish and bake for about 25 minutes. Serve it while warm with your other Thanksgiving dishes – and like regular stuffing it makes amazing leftovers!
Don’t have Carbquik? Look for alternative breads to make Keto Thanksgiving stuffing. There are a lot of premade keto breads and mixes you can buy and make your own breadcrumbs:
