Dress up your Thanksgiving table with a classic dish. Keto cornbread dressing has the same texture and earthy taste. It’s the perfect copycat.
Best Keto Cornbread Dressing Recipe
I know what you are thinking – cornbread isn’t keto! You’re right – cornbread isn’t keto. This recipe is a cornbread copycat. It has all the same tastes and textures – you can’t tell the difference. It isn’t made with corn.
I used a package of Miss Jones Keto Cornbread mix. It’s a combination of almond flour, coconut flour, baking ingredients, and sea salt. It takes no thinking to create the perfect copycat cornbread. I love baking mixes like this. When I’m busy I just don’t want to pay too much attention to measuring.
Keto Thanksgiving Side
There are a few side dishes that seem to show up on every Thanksgiving table, and I am working on creating low-carb versions of all of them. My goal is to have all of the classics and prepare as many keto-friendly foods as I can.
This cornbread dressing is a very important recipe. Your meal won’t be complete with some kind of stuffing or dressing. It will taste spectacular with some keto green bean casserole, cauliflower mash, and low-carb rosemary rolls. Dinner is sounding pretty good right now!
Keto Cornbread Dressing
You could just follow the package’s directions and make a keto cornbread as your side dish. I went a step further and recreated one of my favorite childhood recipes.
After you allow the cornbread to cool down, crumble it up and add the rest of the ingredients. Then, bake this crumbled dressing in a baking dish again.
This will give you a crispy dressing that smells and delicious as it tastes. The earthy-sweet herbs really shine – ground sage, poultry seasoning, ground thyme – they all mirror the same spices used on the turkey. No wonder it is the perfect Thanksgiving recipe!
Stuffing Or Dressing – What’s The Difference
It’s really easy to get them confused. In fact, some people use the terms interchangeably. You might hear someone say “I’m gonna make some stuffing and set it on the table.”
The truth is, the stuffing is what goes into the turkey. It is supposed to cook inside the bird as it cooks. Dressing looks and tastes very similar, but it is made in its own dish. The dressing is never stuffed inside the turkey. People cook it in a baking dish.
This keto sausage stuffing can be stuffed into the turkey. If you make it outside of the bird, you should probably call it dressing – but honestly, as long as it tastes good, the name isn’t as important.
How Long Does Cornbread Dressing Last?
Since there aren’t any sauces or toppings, this cornbread dressing will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to a week. The most important thing is to keep the air off of it so it doesn’t get stale.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator and you can enjoy it for days after Thanksgiving.
