Cauliflower is pretty much a hero when it comes to the keto diet. It’s so versatile because it pretty much conforms to whatever flavor you are going for. It can be part of pizza dough, it can be part of mac and cheese, and it can be mashed potatoes. If you want the ultimate comfort food side dish, you have got to try this loaded cauliflower mash by Low Carb Maven.
Green Bean Casserole
Found from Keto Connect
Another hero of the keto diet is pork rinds. This low-carb replacement for potato chips is pretty much the topping for every crunchy casserole I make. This green bean casserole by Keto Connect is no exception. With a 5 minute prep time and amazing flavor, you won’t be missing that old cream of mushroom soup green bean casserole recipe. Your guests will gobble up this keto-friendly veggie side with no complaints.
Turkey & Gravy
Found from Ruled.me
A huge pantry staple for the keto diet is xanthan gum. This handy little powder acts as a thickening agent. You can purchase this at most local grocery stores or get it on Amazon here. It may look expensive, but you will only need a little bit so it will go a loooong way. This amazing keto-friendly turkey and gravy dinner from Ruled.me is super easy to make and the consistency is spot on close to that brown gravy packet you make every year. The gravy will taste so good, you’ll barely have enough for the leftovers.
Found from All Day I Dream About Food
This is a new twist to a holiday favorite and it’s literally the best keto stuffing recipe out there.

Thanksgiving is not complete without some great cornbread on the side of your plate. Especially in the south! The cheesy almond bread mixture will mimic that cornbread taste without any weird extra ingredients. You can even add in garlic, ranch, or jalapenos depending on your style.
Mac & Cheese

Sweet Potato Casserole

Keto recipes have to get super creative when it comes to sweets. To mimic this Holiday favorite, you’ll combine cauliflower with some pumpkin and top with sweet buttery pecans.
