Protein Sparing Stuffing

Serves: 12
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Place the bacon fat in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, mushrooms and spices. Sauté until tender and translucent. (NOTE: if you need more liquid for sautéing, I add a few tablespoons of chicken broth)
  3. Add the extra lean ground turkey and sauté while breaking up pieces until it is cooked through and no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Cut up the Protein Sparing bread into small 1 centimeter cubes.
  4. Place the keto bread cubes in the pan with the sausage mixture. Add the broth and mix well (you can add more if desired). Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in the egg whites.
  5. Bake, covered, in a greased 1½ to 2 quart casserole for 35-40 minutes. Uncover and bake for 5-10 more minutes until golden brown on the top.
  6. Store extras in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to a month. To reheat, place in a casserole dish in a 350 degree F oven for 6 minutes or until heated through.
