Keto Dressing (Thanksgiving)

Keto Dressing (Thanksgiving)

This Keto Dressing (Thanksgiving) includes a unique approach to ensure it’s very low carb and delicious! The keto ‘bread’ includes asiago and protein powder. The bread is buttery, yet still quite crispy. There’s a great crunch from the celery and pecans involved. With butter and savory spices, you’ll be convinced you are eating a carb heavy dressing, but this is definitely not! The results taste like dressing, with all the right flavors and textures!


What is your favorite Thanksgiving side? Mine is definitely dressing (or stuffing)! In fact, I am sure I could eat this dressing daily!

Keto Dressing (Thanksgiving)



With this recipe, I used Perfect Keto Protein Powder (unflavored). I find it gives the bread a light and airy texture, as bread should be, without being dense. If you have whey protein powder and want to use it instead, be careful. What I have found is that whey protein powder causes large blood sugar disruptions for me, by increasing my blood sugars. I would advise against using any sort of whey. If you don’t think you’re impacted, that’s fine. However, if you are unsure, definitely test your blood sugars before and after! It was shocking to me. Thus, I opted for this protein powder instead (unflavored):


In reality, I said this could serve 8 people, assuming you’ll be eating quite  a few additional sides. As for my husband and I, I ate about 1/3 of it and he finished the rest today. We happily enjoyed eating large portions, just due to how good it is! Also, we intermittent fast, so our breakfasts and lunches are generally larger.

Fortunately, this dressing is shockingly filling, as the fat isn’t overly obvious. It comes from the cheese, pecans, and butter, though! It’s definitely packed with fat and with limited carbs, in true keto terms. I hope you include this Keto Dressing (Thanksgiving) at your Thanksgiving!
