A Five Star Breakfast!

No, this recipe was not inspired by any Egg McMuffin!

It may be surprising, but we were never fans of fast food restaurants like McDonald’s and Burger King pre-keto. Even through all our unhealthy eating habits, we were still aware of how down we felt after eating their food. It took only a few meals to realize where the next morning’s stomach aches and brain fog were coming from. Before our switch from low fat to low carb, we enjoyed making our own food at home and splurging for more healthy options when dining out.

This recipe was inspired by Rami’s love for breakfast sausage. We decided to make a low carb sandwich, breakfast style, on a low carb English muffin! We didn’t have English muffins, nor did we have breakfast sausage, but when you’ve got a craving, you can’t stop just because you’re missing half the ingredients!

There are a few spices that give regular ground pork their breakfast sausage flavor. We used salt, pepper, thyme and sage to really make it feel like we were having a 5 star breakfast with all the bells and whistles.

We also did a quick search for low carb English muffins and stumbled upon a friend of our’s Paleo English Muffins! Stacey @ BeautyandtheFoodie created an awesome recipe with very accessible ingredients so we had to try it out. Clearly, they came out amazing. We enjoyed our low carb sandwich so much and we’re glad we snapped a picture of it, because we had to share it right away.

Enjoy this low carb sandwich with a cup of coffee for the most amazing start to your day!

Ingredients
Low Carb English Muffin
Sandwich Filling
  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice cheese (omit for paleo)
Breakfast Sausage
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  2. To make your low carb English muffin, begin by cracking an egg into a mixing bowl and adding all the muffin ingredients to it.
  3. Mix very well to get rid of any clumps and pour the batter into a ramekin and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. To cook your egg, you may fry it on a pan, but we baked it in a ramekin. This ensured a nice, thick layer of egg that was the same size as the muffin! Simply crack an egg into a ramekin, give it a rough stir and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. To prepare your breakfast sausage, cut open a pork sausage link and discard the casing. (If you have an actual breakfast sausage on hand, like Jimmy Dean, you can just use that.)
  6. Add your seasonings to the sausage meat and mix with your hands. Shape into a patty and cook on a hot pan for about 4-5 minutes on each side.
  7. When the English muffins are done, take them out of the oven and cut them into thin halves. Then toast them until they're browned.
  8. Arrange your breakfast sandwich with your slice of cheese and serve with a drizzle of sriracha if you'd like! Enjoy!
