This Keto HOP Stuffing (or dressing if that’s what it’s called where you’re from) is the low carb turkey side kick of your dreams. Sagey, bready, and super satisfying – you’ll want to enjoy this one all year long.
When it comes to the best keto stuffing, there are three things that are non-negotiable for me – a sturdy bread base, pork sausage (I use this one typically), and lots of sage.
Also onions, celery, butter, and chicken broth, but those are bit players, that support the big three and make this keto HOP bread stuffing my absolute favorite.
I’ve got a bread free stuffing made with cauliflower, and a pumpkin bread, sausage, and feta stuffing I posted years ago that are both good, but this keto HOP stuffing is the hand’s down best.
It’s made with my famous keto HOP bread, which is cubed and toasted in the oven first, and stands up beautifully without falling apart or turning mushy when it absorbs all that porky, sage-flavored broth and butter.
I could go on and on about this keto HOP stuffing, but honestly – it’s stuffing so there’s not a whole lot to say about it other than IT’S SUPER DELICIOUS (seriously though) and your non keto friends and family won’t even notice that it’s not made with traditional bread.
One suggestion I have is that you make the HOP bread at least a day in advance (or longer, and remember the bread can be frozen until it’s ready to use) so that you aren’t having to wait for the bread to bake and then cool and then toast all on the same day.
To make this stuffing squeaky clean keto friendly, just replace the HOP bread with my nut free Squeaky Clean Keto Bread!
I mean if that pic doesn’t make you want to just grab a fork and go to town, do you even have a pulse?
I mean just look at it! Toasty bread, luscious sausage, jewel-like bits of celery and onion – it’s keto stuffing royalty. 👑 👑 👑
I mean forget cake, Marie Antoinette should have said – “Let them eat STUFFING!”
(just kidding, I love cake.)
This stuffing IS good though. 🙌🏻 😂Print

Very tasty but I think I did a couple of things wrong so I’ll have to try it again. I drained the fat after cooking the sausage and I probably used too much bread. Mine came out more like a panzanella. Again, it tasted good (yummy stuffing flavors!) it just wasn’t a cohesive dish so for anyone about to try this out, don’t drain the fat! :)

It’s wonderful to have stuffing again. This is so yummy, plus you can make extra of the delicious hop bread to use everyday.
I don’t really care for sausage in my stuffing. Can this be made just deleting the sausage, or do you have another recipe? Also, can I use any keto bread?
Could you use HOP bread to make a stuffing that you actually cook inside the turkey when roasting? Really would like a reply. Our family loves your bread. I even used the recipe & shaped it into bagels. Grandkids loved them. Thanks for a Great recipe

Yes you definitely can stuff this into a turkey!

I made this much to the chagrin of my family who are not really on board with all my keto cooking. Well, it was a HUGE success. Everyone loved it and I felt like I could gorge on my favorite Thanksgiving dish with a clear conscience. I did eliminate the celery because my husband hates it and substituted chopped water chestnuts for the crunch.
Mellissa Sevigny says
So happy they enjoyed it Cindy and I love your idea of subbing water chestnuts for the celery! 🙌🏻

Really good! I did add an egg to it and it was moist and delicious!
