Keto Cornbread Stuffing

My top two Thanksgiving side dishes are mashed potatoes and stuffing. Both of which smothered in gravy of course. There are lots of delicious Keto “mashed potato” recipes that are a great substitute. But I’ve been having trouble finding Keto stuffing recipes that I really enjoy. So, I set out on a quest to make one. That’s how I ended up with Keto corn bread stuffing!

The Ingredients for Keto Corn Bread Stuffing

The idea for this recipe hit me when I saw that Good Dee’s came out with a new mix….corn bread! And I though, Keto friendly corn bread stuffing-perfect. 

The mix is super easy to make and tastes great on it’s own, even if you aren’t making Keto corn bread stuffing. To be honest, I had trouble not eating multiple pieces while I was trying to make this-don’t say I didn’t warn you, you will be tempted. 

You can get Good Dee’s Corn Bread Mix from Amazon here. 

Or you can order straight from the Good Dee’s website here. Use code: ketoonadime to save 15% off your order! 

If Good Dee’s corn bread mix is sold out, or you think it might be out of your budget, you can check out this low carb corn bread recipe (here) and make this recipe with that instead-it just won’t be as tasty. 

And if you’re making this Keto corn bread stuffing for a holiday (think Thanksgiving!!!) or a special dinner, it is totally worth it to splurge on the corn bread mix. It’s easier to make this Keto recipe with the mix and it tastes great!

Making Keto Corn Bread Stuffing

This recipe works best if the corn bread is made ahead of time. Several days ahead. After you make the corn bread, you cube it and want to basically let it go “stale”. This allows the corn bread pieces to be dry enough to soak up all the liquid and flavor you are adding to the stuffing. 

I recommended toasting the corn bread pieces before making the Keto stuffing. So if you absolutely can’t make the corn bread 2-4 days ahead of time, that’s ok, just toast the pieces longer than the recipe calls for and dry them out.

  1. I just had an epiphany while looking at this recipe. I usually make a white bread stuffing at Thanksgiving. I’m not the biggest fan of cornbread dressing as in I usually won’t make it but will definitely eat it when someone else makes it!! Just the other day, I ordered the thinslim 0 carb bread. If it tastes good, I am planning to get a loaf at Thanksgiving to make my stuffing. Thank you so much for this recipe. If it hadn’t been for you, I wouldn’t have even thought about the bread swap and just have forgone stuffing at TG and would’ve been sad. Again, thanks for the recipe!!

    1. That’s a great idea! I was thinking the same too…making a good low carb bread and drying it out and using for regular stuffing. Good luck with it.

  2. After study a few of the blog posts on your website now, and I truly like your way of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark website list and will be checking back soon. Pls check out my web site as well and let me know what you think.
