Quick and Easy Keto Sausage & Egg Breakfast Bowls Recipe

I love easy breakfast options like eggs, toast, pancakes, and waffles. However, I know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, I try to make sure to fuel up with healthier options, too!

And these egg breakfast bowls always hit the spot! I love to cook up some sausage at the beginning of the week and store it in the fridge. Then, I just scramble some eggs and assemble the bowls, and breakfast is ready in minutes.

What I normally do is cook up some sausage at the beginning of the week and put it in the fridge. I love a little heat, so I sometimes add a sprinkle or two of red pepper flakes to my sausage as it’s cooking. Or, add a dash of garlic powder for extra savoriness. YUM!

Then, each morning that I make one of these Sausage & Egg Breakfast Bowls, I just pull it out and add to my scrambled eggs. Add a cup of coffee, and you have a delicious, filling meal to get you through the morning.

Serve it as is, or mix and match different toppings so you never get bored. Either way, this is a quick, healthy breakfast recipe the whole family will look forward to eating.

Recipe Ingredients

To print: see recipe card below

  • 1/4 cup sausage – Choose any kind of breakfast sausage you like best. However, if you’re keto, just make sure it’s keto-friendly!
  • 2 whole eggs
  • Cheddar cheese to taste – Add as little or as much as your heart desires. For the best taste and texture, buy a block of cheese, and grate it yourself.
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Butter – Feel free to substitute your favorite cooking oil such as olive oil or avocado oil if you don’t have butter on hand.


  • Not a fan of sausage? Crispy, crumbled bacon, ham, or ground turkey tastes great, too.
  • Swap the cheddar cheese with any kind you like best such as smoked gouda or pepper jack.
  • Add sautéed veggies for a boost of fiber and nutrients. Spinach, mushrooms, peppers, and onions all make great additions.
  • If you’re not following a keto diet, stir in roasted potatoes to make the bowl even more filling.

Directions for How to Make Keto Sausage & Egg Breakfast Bowls

  1. Whisk: Crack the eggs into a bowl, and whisk them with a fork until smooth.
  2. Cook the eggs: Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Then, add the eggs to the pan. Cook, stirring frequently until the eggs scramble but are still glossy.
  3. Combine: Add the sausage and cheese, and remove the skillet from the heat. Stir to combine the ingredients. Then, season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serving Suggestions

I love to serve these savory breakfast bowls with toppings like avocado, guacamole, salsa, sour cream, or hot sauce! This recipe is filling enough to eat on its own.

However, feel free to add a side or two if you’re feeding a crowd. Tasty options include oatmeal, fruit salad, and green goddess smoothies.

How to Store

I don’t recommend making this recipe ahead of time as the eggs are likely to become rubbery. However, you can cook the sausage in advance, and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.

Then, reheat it in the microwave or skillet, cook the eggs, and add the cheese! These breakfast bowls are perfect when you’re short on time but still need something filling.

Quick Tip

Be careful not to overcook the eggs as they scramble. Remember, they will continue to cook as they cool. So, we want to remove them from the heat as soon as they’re glossy. Otherwise, they’re likely to become rubbery!

  1. 4 stars
    Very good but I needed the nutrition info. for keto.

  2. 3 stars
    Because my doctor told me to “take the best of each diet you like, and ONLY the BEST parts, and use that for your own diet,” I use some keto recipes, as well as some THM recipes. I just tonight saw a recipe for broccoli-cheddar keto waffles, so I’m going to make those, and use the sausage (turkey) and egg bowl as a sandwich filling between the waffles, making only half the amount of the sausage/egg/cheese combo. Dr. said today that I’m “on the right track” because I’ve been losing weight slowly and steadily, and have lost 45 pounds in 18 months. I like these plans that allow a person to eat real food, not some commercial “diet” that is nothing but garbage on a plate, and there’s nothing healthy about them.

    2. Joyce, why did you rate this recipe 3 stars and then not even talk about having made this recipe? Maybe you don’t understand how ratings work, but people like me rely on ratings to try new recipes, and your rating isn’t even reflective OF THE RECIPE.
