A few words come to mind when it comes to the perfect keto breakfast.

Easy, quick, low carb, 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, eight 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, and three dogs and stick to the keto diet.

If you share my general disdain for the early morning hours but strive for health 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 and freeze them individually for later. Score!

Second, this recipe serves up a level of savory sausage cheese heaven that many low-carb breakfast recipes omit while staying true to being a low-carb, high-protein keto recipe.

Customizable

Breakfast can get boring if you don’t switch it up, so I’ve listed some suggestions below for making these your own. 

Example: Swap the sausage for bacon or ham. Use a red pepper instead of a green one. Leave them out entirely; it’s up to you! (See more suggestions in the recipe notes!)
