I’ve been doing the keto diet since May but I can’t say that I’m super strict with it. I still have alcohol and pasta and lately I’ve indulged in 2 pumpkin donuts from Dunkin Donuts. I definitely have my struggles with keto. It’s 75% high fats (the good fats) which are usually dairy. And this girl is lactose intolerant so I do suffer after eating some of my meals (even though they taste great). Even worse, avocado - one of the good fats - is my mortal enemy. So I’ve had to get really creative with my approach to this diet and somehow it’s still working.
I was drawn to this recipe because I feel that keto breakfasts recipes are really limited. I was sick of egg-whatever and my carbless pancakes were just a waste of really expensive flour. Now if you want to change things up, you can add in other ingredients into the filling to fit your taste. You could toss in some fresh veggies like peppers, mushrooms, and diced tomatoes. It only makes these biscuits even tastier!
Keto Sausage and Cheese Stuffed Biscuits
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Calories 320 kcal
2 ounces cream cheese
2 cups mozzarella shredded
2 eggs beaten
1 cup almond flour
pinch salt & pepper
2 ounces colby jack cheese thin cubes (or your choice of cheese)
6 breakfast sausage patties
In a microwave safe bowl, add cream cheese and mozzarella.
Microwave for 30 seconds at a time until cream cheese is very soft and mozzarella starts to melt.
Mix well! And by mix well I mean, stir stir stir! You want this really combined.
In a small separate bowl, combine beaten egg and almond flour. Add cheese mixture and mix well, again, REALLY well.
Dough may be sticky, this is ok. Dust it with additional almond flour and form into a ball. Place on plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm.
Cut into sections to form 6 3" balls, depending on the size of the sausage.
Flatten dough balls, place sausage on the dough, then cheese and wrap dough around.
Put the stuffed dough into a greased muffin tin.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden and set. Top with more mozzarella if desired.
