Make Ahead Breakfast
For most people, beginning a keto diet involves a transition away from processed foods and eating out a lot, to doing more cooking at home.
While eating keto can be very beneficial, it does take some thought and prep work in the kitchen. That’s why I love this keto sausage egg bake recipe.
Sure, you could get up every morning and stare at the fridge, wondering what to eat and willing yourself to just pick something. But I know from experience that often results in the ill-fated “coffee for breakfast” scenario.
This simple breakfast bake can be made ahead of time so you can just throw it in the microwave or even take a portion to work with you. If you’ve got a large family, you can bake two at once.
Don’t feel like you have to copy my ingredients exactly. Feel free to make this bake to your tastes.
Here are some other keto add-ins you might enjoy:
- Cheddar cheese (if you eat and tolerate dairy)
- Sweet potato
- Diced tomato
