One of my favorite parts of a turkey dinner is the stuffing! You don’t have to give that up with a low carb Thanksgiving meal! This gluten free sausage stuffing recipe uses no bread or flour and so it is also a low carb turkey stuffing!
I make this easy sausage stuffing recipe every time I roast a turkey and I have to admit I don’t really follow a recipe and it’s a little different every time I make it. It just all depends on what I have on hand and my mood! But I tried my best to give you a basic recipe here for Gluten Free Sausage Stuffing that you can tweak to your liking. Here is a link to a slightly different low carb turkey stuffing that I made last year. Last year I felt my stuffing was a bit bland and so I made some tweaks and this one was really, really good.
Gluten Free Sausage Stuffing Recipe
- 2 lbs pork sausages (no filler or wheat)
- Large handful each of fresh sage and fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 onion chopped
- 1 cup pork rinds lightly crushed
- 2 large eggs
- 1-2 tbsp poultry rub or seasoning
- Salt and Pepper to taste
How to make your gluten free sausage stuffing
- Remove sausage meat from casings and place in large bowl
- Add eggs, fresh herbs, onion, crushed pork rinds and seasonings
- Mix all together. I find it easiest to use my hands!
- Stuff the dressing into the turkey cavity.
Note 1: If you choose to use ground pork instead of the sausages, then you will need to add more seasonings. I would double the poultry seasoning.
Note 2: I usually have more stuffing than I do turkey cavity. This year I pressed the remainder of the stuffing into a silicone loaf pan. It made an excellent low carb meatloaf and sliced very well for sandwiches for my carb loving family!
