Keto Breakfast Sausage Burger

14 ratings

This breakfast burger is fun, flavorsome and packed with healthy fats.

Avocado serves as the burger bun, housing a hearty filling of fried egg, lettuce, bacon and a pork patty.

The patty itself is simply made with the meat from Italian sausages. For this you could use any sausages you prefer with your favorite blend of seasonings.

Recipe Steps

23 min

  • Step 1

    Cut into the sausage casings and squeeze the meat into a mixing bowl.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium/high heat. Divide the sausage meat into two even portions and form into individual burger patties with your hands – about a ½ inch thick.
  • Step 3

    Add the patties to the hot pan and fry until golden brown on the outside and completely cooked through. Set aside, leaving any fat in the pan.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Add the bacon and eggs to the pan with the sausage fat and cook until the bacon is crisp and the eggs are cooked through.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Peel the avocados and slice in half lengthways, removing the stone.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    To assemble the burger, slice a little off of the bottom of 2 of the avocado halves – this will give them a flat base to stand on. Layer two of the avocado healves each with a sausage patty, a slice of lettuce, a rasher of crispy bacon and a fried egg. Top with the remaining avocado halves to serve.
    Step 6

    Come on now! I love avocados but how you gonna use them as bread??? You can’t pick them up without getting your fingers all green and mushy. You could eat them with a fork, but then what’s the point ?

      Ha, HA, HA. Avacados, as buns! But I love avacados and I used Romaine leaves for buns. So awesome! On keto "FatShirl's" lost 20 lbs!

      Very good but hard to eat because of the size. I used ground Italian sausage and made my own patties. I also added cheese as another member suggested.

            I don’t know where you live, but in my local stores there are several brands that make Keto bread. The brand Franz makes burger buns that have only 1 net carb and they are actually really good. They taste like regular hamburger buns.

            You could use parmesan wraps from aldi, they are microwavable and crispy!! I love them as a taco as well. You can find them in the refrigerator section by the egg white wraps. 😋 just put the avocado inside the wrap

            Really good...I would have never thought to use avocado as my bread. It's a good combo...I also added Swiss cheese to give a little bit complement to avocado.
