    How to Make Keto Cornbread

    Since this is a keto cornbread stuffing, we have to make keto cornbread. Luckily, it’s very easy to make. This low carb cornbread can be made in one bowl, mixed together with a fork or spoon and baked in the microwave for about 6-8 minutes. However, I do give you instructions for baking the cornbread in the oven if you don’t have a microwave.

    I like to add a little bit of cajun seasoning and cayenne pepper to my keto cornbread for a different flavor.

    Cornbread Flavoring

    For the most authentic cornbread flavoring, you can add cornbread flavoring extract. The brand that I like to get is from One on One Flavoring. Use my affiliate code ketofocus-10 to save 10% off your order.

    It’s not necessary to use cornbread extract as this keto bread recipe is delicious without it. But it does give it that real cornbread flavor.

    Chicken Gizzards

    This is an optional addition to your keto stuffing, but I recommend that you do add it. For one, chicken gizzards add a lot of flavor to your dressing. Gizzards are considered an organ meat and have other benefits to them as well.

    The health benefits of eating chicken gizzards are high in Vitamin B12, niacin and riboflavin. These vitamins help support energy level, brain function and hormones.

    Make Ahead Instructions

    When you are preparing your Thanksgiving or Holiday menu, it can get overwhelming with how many recipes you need to prepare. Oven space is limited as well as your time. Luckily, there are some keto side dishes and recipes that can be made ahead of time including this keto stuffing recipe.

    There are several stages in this recipe that you can stop and finish the dish later on the big holiday. You can prep up the cornbread ahead of time – even toasting the cubes.

    You could prep the dish right up until it needs to be baked and store it in the refrigerator. You can store this dish in the fridge for 1-2 days in advance.
