Breakfast sausage is a delicious addition to any brunch, or breakfast, or brinner (breakfast for dinner). Unfortunately, most prepared store-bought breakfast sausage always seems to contain some form of sugar. Since sugar is totally unnecessary to delicious breakfast sausage, I figured a new recipe was due! My recipe for sugar-free keto breakfast sausage will leave you feeling very satisfied and shocked at how easy it easy to prepare at home. Once you make this, you will never go back to store-bought breakfast sausage again.

Make-Ahead, Store, and Freeze Instructions

You can prepare these breakfast sausages and instead of actually cooking them, mix the ingredients together then roll into a 12-inch log using plastic wrap. Place into a plastic bag and freeze.  Once frozen you can slice off as many pieces as you’d like to cook and proceed with the instructions below for cooking. When you make ahead these breakfast sausages and store them in the freezer, you can enjoy just a few slices at a time rather than cooking the entire recipe at once, which provides 12 patties.

You can also prepare this recipe as instructed below, cook the patties, then allow them to cool completely. Place into an airtight container, layered with parchment and not overlapping. You can now store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for up to a month.
