Keto Easy Breakfast Sausage and Egg Meal Prep

This easy Keto meal prep recipe is fantastic for those looking for a quick breakfast on the go. It is also a good fit for those who are the only low carb or Keto member of their household, so the meal is ready to go when needed. Having breakfast prepped is excellent for those who fast. Delicious no-nitrate added breakfast patties are seared until golden brown and paired with two hard-boiled eggs per meal. Feel free to add additional eggs or sausage to fit your macros for the day. A lightly dressed mixture of diced cucumbers and cherry tomatoes are paired on the side to freshen up the fat-heavy foods. Keep the cucumbers and tomato mixture and eggs separated from the sausages to make this meal easier to reheat.

Do I have to peel the eggs ahead of time?

The eggs are best peeled before serving, but feel free to peel all the eggs if you are short on time.

What kind of breakfast sausage should I use?

Try to find a sausage that is free from vegetable oils, soy, and nitrates, if possible.

Do I have to add the cucumbers and tomatoes?

No, you can omit them from the recipe and keep the meal prep simple. The cucumber salad adds a small number of carbs, so feel free to copy this recipe to My Foods and edit the recipe without them.

Recipe Steps

steps 6

30 min

  • Step 1

    In a large nonstick skillet, place as many patties as will fit with some room around them. Cook them on the first side until golden. Be sure to turn down the heat as necessary to prevent any burning.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Then flip them over and cook on the other side. Set them aside. You want to make sure they are nicely golden brown.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    In the meantime, fill a medium-sized pot with water and bring it to a boil. Gently lower the eggs into the water and cook for 9 minutes. Then drain the hot water.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Add as much ice as possible and then fill cold water around it until the eggs are cold. Peel the eggs ahead of time if you would like. Shocking eggs in cold water will allow the shell to release easily during peeling.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Dice up the cucumber and slice the tomatoes in half. Squeeze the lime juice on top. Season with enough salt to taste.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Divide the sausages, eggs, and cucumber salad into five separate containers each. Store meals should last up to five days in the refrigerator.
    Step 6

    Veggie patty replaced sausage

      Please be aware, most commercially bought sausage is full of filler (usually breadcrumbs) so are remarkably high in carbs - alternative is to make your own patties with ground pork, a beaten egg, and pinch of herbs or spices. Check the package nutrition breakdown very carefully. Another good side is a homemade salsa (again if you are buying commercially made check that they haven't included sugar). I will give this a five for a great idea if you are new to keto.

        I use "Jones Dairy Farm" brand Chicken Sausage Links from GFS. They are in the database. 0 carbs, 9g protein, 7g Fat, 100 cal for 3 links.

        or maybe eating sausage is ok. If everything else is keto that day, and I'm under 20 carbs, and I want to spend a few carbs on jimmy dean turkey sausage crumbles, I think that is ok. I'm looking for sustainable methods, not crazy restrictions.

        Gluten free sausages are a great option

        I agree. Perhaps instead of sausage, they can you can use a few slices of Bacon
