Most store bought frozen breakfast sandwiches, like Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches, or fast food options, like McDonald’s Egg McMuffins, are not keto friendly. The bread has carbohydrates and wheat plus they are filled with processed ingredients and preservatives.

Luckily, it’s pretty easy to make homemade breakfast sandwiches that are low carb with keto bread, scramble egg, bacon, cheddar cheese and sausage.

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.

  1. I followed the recipe as directed but the mixture was a little soupy so I added a little more coconut flour. It tasted more like cornbread. Can the coconut flour be substituted for a more muffin taste? Over all I did enjoy the sandwich, super large. Thanks for the recipe!
