Low-Carb Pork, Sage & Bacon Stuffing

Low-Carb Pork, Sage & Bacon Stuffing

What Christmas dinner would be complete without a generous helping of stuffing? Traditional flavours of pork and sage but with festive hints of cranberry and macadamia. I’ve used macadamias instead of chestnuts to keep it low carb.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and really enjoy my ultimate Keto stuffing!

  7. Place in the oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, carefully remove from the oven, lift off the bacon, fluff the stuffing up with a fork. (Depending on the fat content of the pork you may choose to drain some, I used a leaner 10% fat and stirred didn’t drain the juices as this is what makes it taste so good.)
  8. Add the stock and fluff again. Place the bacon back on top and roast back in the oven for a further 20 minutes until golden on top. Enjoy or let it cool down and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
