Discover Exactly What To Eat To MakeYour Body Burn More Fat

Keto Homemade Pork Sausage

Louise Hendon | January 27

One of my favorite things to cook from ground pork is a nice, big and meaty sausage that I can serve as breakfast or dinner, depending on my mood and nutritional needs. For this homemade sausage recipe, I used garlic powder, paprika, and salt to season the meat, but if you want to give it a more special taste you can add rosemary, basil, and parsley and replace the normal paprika with the smoked one. 

If you incline to do this ground pork recipe for dinner you can serve it alongside this Roasted Cheesy Keto Cauliflower Recipe which is amazingly good and dairy-free, or you can keep it light and simple alongside one of these 38 Hearty Keto Salad Recipes

If you’re more of a breakfast sausage kind of person and you feel like something’s missing, you can accompany it with your favorite dipping sauce… I’m into Keto BBQ sauces, but don’t take my word for it and find your own top choice.
