My favorite keto breakfast sandwich is low in carbs, high in healthy fats and off the charts in flavor! The sausage on the outside is the perfect touch to make you not miss the bread at all!
Breakfast lovers, stand up!
I'm a bacon/sausage/eggs/cheese kind of girl, and I am unapologetic about eating breakfast foods for any meal of the day.
...or for EVERY meal of the day!
Back in the day, I earned the title of Breakfast Sandwich Maker Extraordinaire, with tasty flavors always sandwiched between two slices of toast, bagels, English muffins, you name it...
Not good for my body!
When I first started Keto/Low Carb I needed an easy remedy for my breakfast sandwich obsession, so I wondered what it would be like if I kind of inverted the sandwich to use sausage patties as bread.
Wonder no more...it's incredible.
A lot of keto breakfast sandwiches that I have seen just place the egg on the outside...but I need something I can actually hold!
This high fat meal will keep you full for a long time. I used whole eggs and spicy pork sausage but these can easily be swapped for lower fat options.
Here is the nutrition information for one sandwich, based on the brands I used:
Total Carbs: 7g
Net Carbs: 4g
Egg whites and turkey sausage patties are just as delicious and would be extra tasty with a slice of tomato and spinach.
After a little experimentation (and a lot of taste testing 😉 ) I'm so excited to share with you how to make....

It’s very good, easy to make. But I made with Jimmy Dean patties, which are too small for even a one egg omelet. (Btw, 1 gram of sugar per two JD patties, though I would prefer zero). Are the Walmart brand sausages big enough? I will check them next time I shop. Thanks for the advice, and for the keeper recipe!
