Traditional Thanksgiving bread stuffing with sausage and sage gets a healthy, low carb makeover! Soul bread makes a great base for any stuffing or dressing you want. Grain-Free.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait a gosh darned second here. It’s November first! How is that possible? Last time I checked, it was mid-September and I was just getting used to the idea that the kids were back in school and fall was on its way. Then I blinked and suddenly here we are. November. Which means it is high time for me to get my Thanksgiving butt in gear and start creating delicious low carb recipes for you and for me. So today, we are test-driving a brand new stuffing recipe based on the increasingly useful and adaptable Soul Bread.
Except for the low carb bread base, this is just a really traditional stuffing recipe with plenty of sausage and sage. I toyed with naming it Sausage & Sage Soul Bread Stuffing but I decided this was too much alliteration. It sounds like the start of some crazy tongue twister. Say “Sausage & Sage Soul Bread Stuffing” 10 times fast! I also toyed with the idea of other flavour variants but I decided I wanted to make the soul bread shine in a classic setting with traditional Thanksgiving seasonings. Like many people, I grew up with plenty of boxed stuffing mixes. And while they may not have been very good for us, they always tasted just like Thanksgiving should.
And Soul Bread is the perfect match for a traditional stuffing recipe, or any flavour of stuffing you feel like making. It’s the closest thing to white bread I’ve ever come across in the low carb world. You know I love my almond flour, but breads made with it can be heavy and filling, which doesn’t allow for as much stuffing consumption. Soul bread is lighter and has even fewer carbs, so you can pile the stuffing higher on your Thanksgiving plate.
I simply baked my Soul Bread Sesame Rolls in a loaf pan instead of in individual servings. Then I sliced it into 1/2 inch thick slices and let it sit in a warm oven for a few hours to dry it out further. I chopped the slices into 1/2 inch chunks, tossed it with cooked breakfast sausage, celery, a little onion, and some chopped sage. Some eggs, some cream, some salt and pepper, and there you have it. A classic low carb stuffing recipe that is sure to please even the pickiest of Thanksgiving guests.
