Low Carb Make Ahead Keto Egg Breakfast Sandwich

A satisfying, make ahead keto meal for mornings when you are short on time but still want some sausage and eggs. The keto egg breakfast sandwich will meet all your early morning food demands.Mornings run anything but smoothly at our house so that I’m always on the hunt for an easy keto breakfast recipe we can eat on the go. I used to love those Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches and McDonald’s Egg McMuffins, so I decided to create a keto approved version.

The Keto Muffin

Many breakfast sandwiches are made using english muffins, which obviously aren’t allowed on the keto diet. The keto muffin recipe in this egg mcmuffin is one I adapted from Low Carb Yum. Her english muffin recipe uses almond butter to decrease the eggy flavor from the large amount of egg added to the recipe.The muffin batter is poured into a muffin top pan, but you can use an actual muffin pan and not fill them all the way up. This will make for smaller muffins. They will be slider size. You can also use 3 – 4 inch sized ramekins too. If using ramekins you can bake the keto muffin in the oven or the microwave.

Cooking Eggs For A Breakfast Sandwich

There are many different ways to cook eggs to go into a breakfast sandwich.
  • Fried Egg – You can fry your eggs on a skillet or griddle. Using an egg ring helps to ensure they are all the same size in diameter.
  • Scrambled Eggs in a Non Stick Skillet- You can scramble each egg in a little bit of water and cook in a skillet over medium heat. After cooking on one side, fold over onto itself like making an omelet and then fold one more time the other direction, so to fit on the muffin.
  • Baked Scrambled Eggs – One easy, hands-off method for cooking breakfast sandwich eggs is to scramble the eggs together with a little bit of heavy cream first, then pour the mixture into a lightly greased casserole dish. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes until they are set. Once cooled cut out egg circles using a biscuit cutter.

Frozen Keto Breakfast Sandwich

Keto breakfast sandwiches can be frozen ahead of time. Flash freeze the egg, sausage, and muffin separately. Then assemble and wrap in a paper towel and then plastic wrap before sliding them into a freezer safe ziploc bag.

Reheating Breakfast Sandwiches

To reheat the egg mcmuffin, remove the plastic wrap and keeping the paper towel on. Defrost for 1 minute in the microwave, then cook at 100% for 1 minute.
