Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Fresh herbs transform this dish into something special. Fresh parsley is available just about everywhere, but if you can’t get fresh rosemary or fresh sage, use 1 teaspoon of dried herbs instead of fresh.
  • Add a pinch of red pepper flakes to add a bit of heat, or 1/2 a teaspoon of chipotle powder for a smoky heat.
  • Add crumbled sausage to this dish to make it a meatier low carb stuffing.
  • Make this keto holiday stuffing recipe ahead of time then just pop it in the oven to warm it if you’re serving it as dressing, or stuff it into the turkey before roasting it.

What to Serve with this Cauliflower keto stuffing Recipe

This is the perfect side dish with roasted pork, lamb, chicken, or even beef. Pair it with your favorite meals, and if you want to stuff it, try it stuffed inside pork loin, chicken or Cornish game hens, or turkey, of course. And don’t forget the turkey gravy!
