20 Eazy Peazy Keto Sausage Recipes

ketogenic sausage recipes

Sausages are a great source of protein and fat if you’re on a keto diet.

And they taste so amazing! Come on, who doesn’t love sausages?

So they’re the perfect food to cook for picky eaters… you know, like kids.

And there are so many dishes where you can use sausages. Besides having them on a keto bun.

You can also eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get cooking!

1. Keto Sausage Pizza Bites

Sausage Pizza Bites


Game days are loads of fun. You get to watch your favorite team play, and hopefully, win.

You also get to spend time with family and friends. But in my humble opinion, the best part is the food.

And these sausage pizza bites prove my point. They’re a party in your mouth.

They’re juicy cheesy and meaty. Think of them as meatballs made with ground sausage, pepperoni, and two kinds of cheeses. Yum!

The key to keeping them keto is to use almond flour instead of breadcrumbs as your binder.

Not only is almond flour low in net carbs, but it is also an excellent source of vitamin E, which you need for great skin. If you need to stock up on almond flour, you can get some here.

Serve with marinara sauce. Check my own original keto pizza bite recipe here!

Some mornings you just want to hit the snooze button. And sleep in.

This Keto Sausage Vegetable Breakfast Bowl gives you something to look forward to. You have nicely browned ground sausage and mushrooms and zucchini sauteed in sausage grease for extra flavor.

It’s also good for meal prep. Prep over the weekend and you have breakfast ready for 4 days.

To keep your food fresh longer, be sure to store it in airtight food storage containers. I recommend these BPA free glass food storage containers, so you don’t have to worry about toxic chemicals getting into your food. Also, glass containers are just more sustainable.

Top with Colby Jack cheese, or if you like it spicy, Pepper Jack cheese.

3. Meaty & Cheesy Sausage Parmigiana

Cheesy Sausage Parmigiana


I love Italian food, as I’m sure many of you do too. But Italian food tends to be carb-heavy.

So, when I come across an Italian dish that has only 4 grams of net carbs, I say, “Sign me up!”

This parmigiana is packed with flavor. Juicy sausage is smothered in home-made tomato sauce and smothered with not 1, but 3 kinds of cheese: ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, and mozzarella cheese.

Serve with zucchini noodles. Here is a low budget spiralizer you can use to make them.

And to make clean-up a breeze, you can make your sausage & egg cups in these silicone muffin pans.

This soup is delicious. It’s creamy and cheesy and meaty; the crispy bacon crumbles add a layer of texture and flavor… After all, everything is better with bacon, right?

To make this keto, you replace the potatoes with radishes. Not only are radishes a good low carb substitute, but they’re also pretty nutritious too.

They’re a good source of vitamin C, which you need for a healthy immune system.

Crumbled sausage, cheese, eggs, and cream are stuffed in poblanos. They’re a party in your mouth.

Now, these stuffed poblanos take some time to make. So, if you’re planning to have them for breakfast, it’s best to make a batch over the weekend, then freeze them.

This soup is creamy and so flavorful. It’s packed with sausage and spinach…it’s a pretty tasty way to eat your veggies.

And the broth adds a ton of flavor. That’s because you use chicken bone broth.

12. Keto Italian Sausage Meatballs

Italian Sausage Meatballs


I’m a big fan of Italian meatballs, as I’m sure many of you are too. But they’re usually loaded with breadcrumbs.

And breadcrumbs equal carbs. In fact, just ¼ cup of breadcrumbs contains a whopping 14 grams of net carbs.

And we all know where those carbs go…straight to your waistline. Yuck!

These meatballs are super moist and juicy and seasoned just right. And there are only 5 grams of net carbs per serving… Double win!

The key to keeping them low carb is to use almond flour like this instead of breadcrumbs. So, make sure you have some on hand!

  • Calories: 449
  • Fats: 39g
  • Protein: 18g
  • Net Carbs: 5g

13. Sausage Pepper Cauliflower Rice Skillet

Sausage Pepper Cauliflower Rice Skillet


White rice is so yummy, yet so bad for you. Not only is it high in carbs, but it’s also pretty low in fiber.

So, not only will it get you out of ketosis, it won’t fill you up either.

Cauliflower rice is a great keto alternative to white rice. It’s packed with antioxidants and is high in fiber, so it keeps you full.

This cauliflower rice skillet dish is as beautiful to look at, as it is to eat. It’s savory, smoky, and has a bit of heat.

To make it, you can use pre-packaged cauliflower rice. But it’s cheaper to make your own.

Just cut your cauliflower into pieces, place them in a food processor, and process until rice-like. This food processor should do the trick.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 366
  • Fats: 30g
  • Protein: 16g
  • Net Carbs: 3g

14. Low Carb Biscuits & Gravy

Low Carb Biscuits and Gravy


Do you have a hankering for some good ole’ southern cooking? Then try these!

The biscuits are nice and fluffy, and the sausage gravy is amazing.

You’ll feel like you’re cheating on your diet, but you’re not. In fact, one biscuit contains only 3 grams of net carbs.

The key to the biscuits being so low carb is that you use coconut flour. Coconut flour is not only low carb, it’s also an excellent source of iron.

And since a little of it goes a long way, it’s a pretty economical low carb flour. If you don’t have any, you can get some here.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 737
  • Fats: 60g
  • Protein: 40g
  • Net Carbs: 3g

15. Low Carb Italian Sausage Kale Soup

This soup is also packed with kale and cauliflower. So, has a lot of cold-fighting vitamin C…exactly what the doctor ordered.

And it takes only 10 minutes to cook, yet it tastes like it’s been simmering for hours.

That’s because you use an Instant Pot to make it. If you don’t yet have an Instant Pot, there’s a great deal on this one now.

You had me at pizza, after all, who doesn’t love pizza? But pizza doesn’t love you back.

Just one slice can net you almost 30 grams of net carbs. That’s more than your daily allowance of net carbs.

This pizza casserole is layered with delicious pizza toppings. Toppings like Italian sausage, mushrooms, pepperoni, cheese, bell peppers, and sauce.

It will remind you of pizza…but without all of the carbs.

This is your perfect comfort meal that happens to be ketogenic!

Frittatas are perfect at any time of the day. You can eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

This frittata is pretty tasty. It has the perfect combination of sausage, spinach, red bell, pepper, and cheese.

Besides being delicious, it’s pretty nutritious. One serving provides 42% of your daily vitamin A needs and 33% of your vitamin C needs, so it’s great for building your immunity.

And you only use one skillet to make it. So, you have less clean up.

You’ll be placing your skillet in the oven, so make sure you use an ovenproof skillet. Cast iron skillets like this one here are your best bet.

Quite simply, they’re sausages coated in pancake batter, all on a stick. They’re golden and crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.

All served with maple syrup. You’ll be in foodie heaven.

To keep it low carb, you’ll be using Lakanto pancake mix. It’s a low carb, high protein pancake mix that is gluten-free. You can get some here.

And for the syrup, you’ll be using a low carb syrup. I like Lakanto maple-flavored sugar-free syrup because it has only 1 gram of net carbs per serving. And it’s sweetened with monk fruit sweetener, an all-natural sweetener.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 119
  • Fats: 9g
  • Protein: 5g
  • Net Carbs: 2g

19. Italian Sausage & Spinach Quiche

Italian Sausage and Spinach Quiche


Frittatas are amazing. But sometimes, you want some crust to sink your teeth into.

That’s where this Italian sausage & spinach quiche comes in handy. The crust is flaky, and the filling is delicious.

The combination of sweet Italian sausage, parmesan cheese, goat cheese, spinach, and grape tomatoes is an absolute winner.

Now this quiche does take some time to make. So, you’ll want to save it for breakfast in bed on a special occasion.

20. Easy Air Fryer Sausages

Easy Air Fryer Sausages


Sometimes you don’t have tons of time to meal prep over the weekend. At times like that, you can just keep it simple and prep some sausages.

That way, you have your protein/fat source covered for the week. Then, all you need to do during the week is to add some low carb veggies to make a complete meal.

It can be as simple as adding salad greens to make salads for your lunches. Or making a veggie stir-fry or simply steaming your favorite low carb veggies for dinner.

These air fryer sausages are nice and juicy. And they’re pretty easy to cook.

Just turn them over halfway through the cooking process. And that’s it.

No babysitting your sausages. No turning them over regularly to get them to cook evenly.

That’s because you use an air fryer. An air fryer is a great way to enjoy your favorite fried foods without a ton of fuss.

Also, you can enjoy your favorite fried foods without deep-frying them. So it’s much healthier for you. If you’d like that bit of extra convenience, you can save a lot of money on this air fryer right now.
