Perfect Keto Breakfast Sandwich

I’ll be honest, I don’t eat breakfast most days. We practice intermittent fasting so I usually don’t eat until about noon most of the time. But when eating time rolls around, I want food and I want it now! And that’s the best part about these breakfast sandwiches. They’re ready in 60 seconds!

They’re also perfect for kids. Let me tell you, since making these, my kids have been asking for these for all three meals, every day, all day. They love them! It’s easy to grab one out of the fridge, toss it in the microwave for 60 seconds, and have a complete meal with all of their favorite foods.

Ingredients

Pancake Layers

Sausage Layer

  • 3 lbs Pork Sausage like Jimmy Dean
  • 8-10 oz Sharp Cheddar Cheese shredded

Egg Layer

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line an 11x17" rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. If you have two 11x17" rimmed baking sheets, use both. Set aside.

Pancake Layers

  1. Combine the melted butter, cream, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Whisk them all together until they are combined and smooth.
  2. Add in the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth and there are no lumps. The batter will be thicker than a regular pancake batter.
  3. Pour half of the batter into one of the 11x17" baking sheets and half in the other (or do this in 2 batches if you only have one pan). Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or until the top of the pancake is golden.

  4. Remove from the oven and invert the pan onto a wire cooling rack covered with another piece of parchment paper. Peel the parchment off the bottom of the pancakes.Let cool completely.

Sausage Layer

  1. Line an 18x13" rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Using your hands, press the uncooked sausage onto the baking sheet, spreading it all the way to the edges, making sure to keep the thickness as uniform as possible.

  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle shredded cheese on top, and place back in the oven to melt for another couple minutes.

  3. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan.

Egg Layer

  1. Reduce oven temp to 350°F. Line the 11x17" rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, cream, salt, and pepper and whisk until smooth. Pour into the prepared baking sheet, taking care not to get the eggs under the parchment (it's okay if a little seeps under).

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven when the eggs are no longer wiggly. If they have puffed up during cooking, place a piece of parchment on top and gently press them down to a uniform thickness. Let cool completely in the baking sheet.

How To Assemble

  1. Carefully place one of the pancake layers on top of the sausage layer. The sausage layer will be slightly larger, trim any excess off the edges that extend past the pancake layer. Reserve the scraps to add to scrambled eggs another day.
  2. Place a large cutting board on top of the pancake/sausage layer and invert it onto the cutting board (the sausage layer will now be on top).
  3. Carefully place the egg layer on top of the sausage, parchment side up. Peel off the parchment paper. Gently layer the remaining pancake layer on top of the egg layer

  4. Once all 4 layers are fully assembled, cut them into 15 bars. Wrap individually in parchment paper and store in the fridge or freezer. Reheat in the microwave (60 seconds when thawed) or toaster oven (5-8 minutes at 350°F when thawed) when ready to eat.

      I haven’t tested it so I’m not sure how much coconut flour would be needed to replace those 2 ingredients. Also, the macros would change (carbs would go up, fat would go down). You could try it and add just a small amount (less than a Tbsp) of coconut flour, waiting about a minute after each addition, until you get a pancake batter consistency.

      The serving listed on the recipe (15) is what I get, but it depends on how big or small you cut the sandwiches. You could cut them smaller (half of what I do) to get 30, that’s a good size for smaller children.

      I have only made these with the prebiotic fiber, so I can’t say for sure how they would turn out without it. The fiber adds bulk, a slight sweetness, and additional fiber (so leaving it out will affect the macro count of the sandwiches). If you do leave it out, I would add in a bit more flour to compensate for the missing dry ingredient.

    Could you mix in uncooked veggies to the sausage layer before cooking it? Like mushrooms and onions? Do you think it would be better to cook the mushrooms and onions before adding it to the sausage layer and then putting it in the oven?
    PS. You are awesome, love this website!
