This recipe is not just perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas, but for any occasion you desire a comforting and savory treat. With a blend of low carb bread and cornbread stuffing, it’s a delicate balance that tantalizes the taste buds.

The Secrets Behind Perfect Stuffing Balls

  1. Texture Matters: The perfect stuffing ball is crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. Achieving this depends on the right moisture content. The chicken broth in our recipe ensures this!
  2. Freshness is Key: Use fresh ingredients whenever possible, especially the herbs. They release aromatic oils which make your stuffing balls aromatic and flavorful.
  3. Uniformity: Ensure all balls are of similar size. This guarantees even cooking.


  • 1 cup Celery, finely chopped
  • ½ cup Parsley, chopped
  • ½ tbsp Ground Sage
  • 1 ½ tsp Dried Thyme Leaves
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 6 cups Low Carb Bread, toasted & chopped
  • 6 cups Cornbread Stuffing
  • 1 Large Egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 can Chicken Broth


  1. eheat the Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C). While the oven is warming up, grease or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the finely chopped celery, chopped parsley, ground sage, dried thyme leaves, kosher salt, and black pepper. Ensure the mixture is well blended.
  3. Bread & Cornbread Fusion: To the same bowl, add the toasted/chopped low carb bread and cornbread stuffing. Gently mix until the bread pieces are well coated with the spices.
  4. Wet Ingredients: Make a well in the center of your mixture. Pour in the slightly beaten egg and gradually add the chicken broth. Stir slowly, ensuring the liquid is well absorbed, creating a moist mixture.
  5. Form the Balls: Using your hands or a scoop, take a portion of the mixture and shape them into golf-ball-sized balls. Place them onto the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake to Perfection: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven. Bake the stuffing balls for approximately 20-25 minutes or until they’re golden brown and crispy on the outside, while remaining soft inside.
  7. Serve and Enjoy: Once baked, remove the stuffing balls from the oven and let them cool for a couple of minutes. Serve warm with gravy, cranberry sauce, or any side of your choice.
