How to prepare a Keto Thanksgiving
Are you still wondering what to cook for Thanksgiving this year? Or at least, what to cook that will fit your ketogenic diet and yet still be delicious enough to satisfy?
Never fear, I’ve got you covered. I searched high and low for the best keto and low carb Thanksgiving recipes the internet has to offer. I worked on this list for a long time, trying to find you all the classics made low carb, gluten free, and sugar free.
Believe it or not, you don’t have to suffer through the holiday season, abstaining from your favorite dishes.
There are delicious keto recipes to replace all your old standards. From low carb stuffing to sugar free pumpkin pie, these keto recipes make your holidays perfect.
Turkey and gravy
I figure that you already know how to make turkey keto friendly. Slap some butter on that bird, sprinkle it with herbs, and toss it in the oven. That part is easy!
The gravy part is almost as easy. Really, it is!
Check out my guide on how to make Keto Gravy. I give you step by step instructions, walking you through the whole process.

We have nut allergies so I was wondering if quinoa flour could substitute for almond and coconut flours
I have never used quinoa flour, I honestly don’t know. Sorry.

Thank you so much. I am new to Keto for health reasons, and have only been doing it for two weeks. I needed some Thanksgiving recipes to add to the table. I made the sausage stuffing with the cheese bread, the green beans and mushroom sauce, the mashed cauliflower, and the pumpkin cream pie. The cauliflower and the pie were more popular than the unhealthier versions that were also on the table! It was also nice to have leftovers today that fit into my new eating habits ????
I am delighted to hear it! Welcome to the wonderful world of keto living.
I think you should include your pumpkin tiramisu on the dessert list! I was thinking about inventing my own pumpkin tiramisu recipe, but decided to do a search first and your recipe popped up. Since it was your recipe I knew it would be good. Thanks for sharing all of your hard work!

This is an amazing resource! Thanks for including my Brussels Sprouts recipe! Have a great holiday Carolyn.
Dawn Arcieri says
Would be awesome if you could create a Holiday keto cookbook so the recipes would all be in one glorious book!
I’ve thought about that but have no time this year. I do have a holiday dessert ebook coming but a full Thanksgiving book will have to wait for another year!
Keto biscuits will be my to do recipes for this year!
What a great ‘go to’ list, Carolyn! Thank you!
Can’t imagine Thanksgiving without your Soul Bread Stuffing. Have made it the
last two years and we love it so much, I can’t bring myself to try another 🙂

Vikki Johnson says
Do you have the nutritional info for the Brûlée?
Thanks so much for the list.
I don’t, actually but you can use My Fitness Pal to find out.

Holy Cow! It’s the Holy Grail of Thanksgiving Feast Food!!! Great round up Carolyn!! Can’t wait to try so many of these recipes. Thank you for including the Fluffys!!!

Thanks for putting this list together, Carolyn! Lots of work in this. 🙂 I noticed that you don’t have any recipes from Gourmet Girl Cooks http://www.gourmetgirlcooks.com/ I would recommend her highly. I really enjoy several of her recipes – and my boyfriend LOVES her “Easy biscuit” recipe (which I modified to make short bread out of for strawberry shortbread). I personally love her Zucchini bread!
I haven’t tried these yet, but she also has a recipe for Grain-free Shuffing Bread Cubes http://www.gourmetgirlcooks.com/2013/11/grain-free-stuffing-bread-cubes-use-in.html
I often include Gourmet Girl in my round-ups, I just didn’t happen to find a recipe I wanted to include this time. Thanks!
GREAT recipes! Hoping you can give me advice for my fave scalloped oysters. Know the oysters, heavy cream and butter are great for my keto plan. BUT — what’s the best substitute for 3 cups of bread crumbs? Don’t need the crunch of pork rinds. Should I just make low-carb bread recipe then dry it and crumble? Other thoughts from anyone?
I think you’ve already nailed it. You could use a couple of possible recipes for the bread crumbs. This one would be good: https://alldayidreamaboutfood.com/2011/12/almond-flour-bread-and-french-toast-low-carb-and-gluten-free.html
This is just what I was looking for. I’m on the loaded gun diet and I eat everything just less then I’d want to. But Thanksgiving is coming and I’m already having panic attacks.
What is the loaded gun diet?
