Keto Breakfast Sausage
What’s in a breakfast sausage? Spices and meat you would think. Sadly most sausages these days have an ingredient list that is far too long. And includes a number of items that really don’t need to be in them. So why not just make it at home, from scratch. It’s a fairly simple process and you know what’s going into it as well. The best part is that you can make them ahead of time, freeze them and eat when desired. You could also just make it fresh daily. It’s really just too easy. Anyway enough jibber jabber, let’s cook!
Breakfast Sausage Sandwiches
My introduction to breakfast sausage was sadly through McDonalds. It’s not a common item on the breakfast table in India. I did however do a copycat recipe and made a Keto Egg & Sausage McMuffin recipe. However these days I don’t really need the bread, naked sandwiches it is. What’s great about this recipe is you can play around with the spices and flavours and honestly it’s one of my easiest recipes ever. I would love to hear some of your variations so do leave me a comment and share your recipes.
