Of all the ingredients available to man, nothing may be as synonymous with holiday dinners (Thanksgiving and/or Christmas dinner, depending on your location) as Turkey is. No holiday season would be complete without a spot of this savory and delicious bird.
And fortunately for us, apart from tasting great, Turkey is also naturally carb-free, making low carb keto Christmas recipes easy and plentiful. But this keto Christmas recipe stands out not only in how low carb it is but also in the relative ease of it all. With only about half of the effort that a regular turkey recipe would call for, this holiday meal might just find its way into your everyday keto diet. And if you keep reading, you’ll also discover our recipe for stuffing that works great on a keto diet.
Lamb is not the most common holiday dish by a long shot. And more’s the shame, because it’s delicious and looks fantastic. Apart from not being as popular as other dishes, another thing that might be scaring you off lamb might be the complexity and effort required for most lamb recipes. It’s one of those things that has settled in the minds of cooks everywhere as a try-hard meal.
But this doesn’t have to be the case at all!
This recipe is quick and simple and still tastes great! It’s guaranteed to make a fine addition to your menu if you’re a fan of lamb and sure to be a hit if you want to try something new.
Another less popular holiday option, many a pork recipe can be found that’ll give you well-seared, tasty cuts. And this is the most enjoyable yet! The recipe also includes a rich and creamy ranch sauce to really finish off this keto food dish as an added bonus. It’s so good; you’ll want to try it with other meat dishes as well. And you’re more than welcome to.
Eat it alone, or with a side or main dish of salad. I can guarantee that serving this will be one of your best dinner ideas yet. Unless you want something kosher, there’s no reason not to try it! Goes great with mashed potatoes and green beans
A more labor-intensive pork recipe, this keto recipe features oven-cooked pork tenderloins made to perfection. Switching out the creamy ranch flavor for a more cheese-based appeal, this is a must-try recipe if you have the prep time! Either way, it’s an instant dinner hit.
For the recipe that offers the full food experience, you’re going to want to prepare the veggie spirals. While optional, they make a great keto side dish for keto dieters, and this way, they help keep you filled even on the low carb meal plan. While the recipe calls for grated cheese, shredded parmesan cheese (I like a garlic parmesan mix) will suffice for the purpose of this recipe. Goat cheese might also be a good idea.
Cranberry sauce is a prime example of some of the most excellent side dishes for keto Christmas recipes. Still, the store-bought products are not exactly easy on the diet. Fortunately, you can make your own and wow your guests with a low carb keto alternative that tastes just as good with your food as the retail products.
This recipe is a godsend for Christmas dinner, utilizing fresh ingredients and swapping out orange juice and sugar for the more diet-friendly water, orange extract, and sweetener options. Plop it on the table and watch as your guests enjoy it as much as their favorite store-bought product!
Another versatile keto recipe that can double as both a side and a main dish, this casserole is a veritable treasure trove of culinary goodness. It’s creamy from the cheese (a garlic parmesan mix is always great), and the chopped pork reminds you of all your favorite bacon-wrapped treats. And then there’s the chicken. This has a little bit of everything, and it all comes together perfectly. But don’t let that stop you from experimenting. I like to substitute the whipping cream with sour cream sometimes, as sour cream is more to my tastes.
Another short and easy recipe for your low carb keto meal plan and Christmas holiday dinner, mashed cauliflower, offers great nutrition while still tasting great! A great alternative to mashed potatoes on a diet, mashed cauliflower is healthier and just as tasty. This recipe can be made from scratch or from pre-riced cauliflower, depending on how much time you have. So before you consign yourself to a diet-breaking side dish, give this recipe a try and thank me later.
This may be the shortest recipe on this list, but it’s far from mediocre! Sauteed ham and green beans cooked in olive oil are divine and only take about 20 or so minutes to make, depending on how quickly you can prep the ingredients. Healthy and delicious, you’ll be left with a green meal even the kids will beg for more of.
This next recipe is for low carb, keto Christmas holiday season stuffing that can also double as a side dish. And it tastes better than most salad dishes, too. This is one of our better ideas for an even healthier Christmas dinner.
Now, no turkey is complete without stuffing. Still, the stuffing can often add a lot of unwanted carbs to the meal and even take away some of the nutritional value. But with this cauliflower-based recipe, complete with lots of herbs, veggies, and spices, you get the great taste and filling of stuffing without the carbs. This recipe is not only keto-friendly, but it’s even vegan safe, makes a great side dish, and tastes great. At only 7 grams of carbohydrates (all from the vegetables), you’ll never go back to your regular stuffing again.
Everyone loves Christmas cookies, and so I included two keto recipes for just those! Try both cookies keto Christmas recipes out and see which is your personal favorite.
This first recipe is a real treat; Peppermint Hot Chocolate cookies taste like a steamy cocoa cup. And in addition to being keto-friendly, these cookies are even gluten-free! Kids and adults alike will enjoy these cookies. You can sprinkle on some toppings for extra flavor if you want. Still, with hints of peppermint, coconut, vanilla, and the overall sweetness, you’d be hard-pressed to find a good reason to add on any more.
If peppermint isn’t your thing, or you just want to try something else, this recipe is just as impressive. The chocolate and peanut butter combinations are great for kids. The no-bake method is amazing for busy moms who want something sweet with little effort. All it requires is a few minutes of mixing and a freezer, and your cookies are good to go! The recipe itself is flexible and can be adjusted for different tastes, allergies, and more. The peanut butter and chocolate do end up making these cookies a bit sticky, but the taste is well worth it!
