by Sunnie Sabol

As the holidays get closer, you are probably starting to plan your dinner menu. One of the traditional dishes that is often served this time of year is stuffing. But what to do if you are following a keto diet? Do you skip stuffing altogether? Do you make traditional stuffing for your guests and just resist the temptation to try just a bite? No - you make a delicious keto stuffing recipe that will keep you on track AND all your guests will love even if they are not eating keto themselves.

The challenge with making a good keto stuffing recipe is that the main ingredient is bread. It has taken me a lot of trial and error to find the right ingredients to make a keto diet-friendly stuffing that is not heavy or odd tasting. The first step is making sure that you are using a high-quality low or no-carb bread. I recommend Thin Slim bread because it both tastes great and holds up well in the recipe.

One of the tricks to keeping the bread from getting soggy and heavy in the keto stuffing is to let it get stale before using.
There are two ways to go about doing this. If you have extra time, you can allow the bread to sit out until it is stale just from being exposed to the air. If you are a little more pressed for time, you can actually make the bread stale in the oven.

Make stale bread:
1.     Preheat oven to 200º.

2.     Cut bread slices into small cubes that are about 1/2" in size. Use a serrated bread knife to make cutting easier.

3.     Spread the bread cubes evenly on two large, rimmed baking sheets and place in oven.

4.     Leave bread cubes in oven for about 2 hours or until hardened.

The stale bread is less able to absorb the liquids in the keto stuffing recipe and stays lighter and fluffier. This is my secret for tasty keto stuffing, and now it is yours too!
