  • 1 loaf our keto sandwich bread about 500g
  • 6 tablespoons grass-fed butter or olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound yellow onions about 2, finely diced
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 4 cloves garlic ran through a press
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg freshly ground (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice optional*
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped sage leaves
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped rosemary
  • 4 springs thyme leaves only
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon kosher salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 250°F/120°C. Slice and dice sandwich loaf to preference, you can do either larger chunks or smaller bits. Scatter bread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake, stirring occasionally, until dried out (45-60 mins). Transfer to a large bowl. 

  2. Prepare the rest while the bread is in the oven. Melt 4 tablespoons of butter (ghee or olive oil) in a skillet or pan over medium heat. Add in the onion, celery, garlic, a touch of salt and cook, stirring often, until it just begins to brown (about 10 minutes). Add in the nutmeg and allspice (optional) and cook for a couple more minutes until fragrant. Transfer to bowl with bread and toss with the parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. Allow to cool completely. 

  3. Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C and butter generously a 10x8x2" baking dish. Whisk broth with eggs and salt. How much seasoning you add will depend on your broth, so you may want to give it a taste before adding in the eggs. Pour broth mixture onto bread, folding gently until thoroughly combined. Transfer stuffing onto prepared dish, scatter remaining butter on top, cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until browned, about 10-15 minutes more. 

Recipe Notes

*Adding nutmeg and allspice is totally optional, but they do add a lovely touch!
