When it comes to the perfect keto breakfast, a few words come to mind.
Easy, quick, low carb, and portable. And Tasty!
I’ve never been much of a morning person, and that did not change when I started the keto diet-
a hundred years ago 7 years ago!
Moment of Truth: I skipped breakfast more times than I should have. It took me some time to figure out how to manage my busy-crazy-mornings with three kids, one husband, three dogs & stick to the keto diet!
If you share my general disdain for the early morning hours, but strive for healthy when it comes to your morning break-the-fast-meal then you’ll love this tasty recipe for Keto Breakfast Muffins with Sausage.
Keto Breakfast Muffins Recipe
First: It’s easy. You can put these together in a few minutes even if you’re in a brain fog before your first cup of coffee. You can also make these keto muffins ahead & freeze them individually for later. Score!
Second: This recipe serves up a level of savory sausage cheese heaven that many of the low carb breakfast recipes omit while staying true to being a low carb, high protein keto recipe.
Breakfast can get boring if you don’t switch it up so I’ve listed some suggestions below for ways you can make these your own.
Example: Swap the sausage for bacon or ham. Use a red pepper instead of a green one-or leave them out entirely-it’s up to you! (See more suggestions in the recipe notes!)
