Try this Keto Sausage and Biscuit Recipe for an easy low carb breakfast! These Keto Almond Flour Biscuits are stuffed with cooked sausage patties for a high protein low carb breakfast!
When my husband was diagnosed with Celiac, nearly 14 years ago, one of the foods he missed most was Sausage and Biscuits. It was his favorite breakfast and it took a long time to come up with a tasty gluten free biscuit. When we switched to a low carb, keto-friendly lifestyle, we were once again, missing our favorite breakfast comfort food!
Fortunately, these Keto Sausage and Biscuits are the perfect keto friendly breakfast! These almond flour biscuits are loaded with cheese and are perfectly soft and fluffy. They are paired with cooked sausage patties to make an easy low carb breakfast. I even have a recipe for sausage in the air fryer! These delicious breakfast sandwiches also happen to be an easy keto meal prep option!
Ingredients Needed for Keto Biscuits
As always, this is a quick overview of the ingredients you will need. To get the complete recipe just keep scrolling.

How to Make Keto Biscuits with Sausage
These Keto Sausage Biscuits are super easy to make! You’ll want to start by mixing softened cream cheese, shredded cheddar, and eggs. Stir this together until the cream cheese is smooth. Then add almond flour, baking powder, salt, heavy cream, and melted butter.
Stir the mixture until well combined, but don’t overmix — This will lead to tough, dry biscuits instead of the fluffy, delicious biscuits you want. Chill the dough for 10-15 minutes. If you are meal prepping this, you could chill this dough for up to one full day before baking (just cover with plastic wrap or a lid).
When ready to cook, sprinkle almond flour onto a cutting board or clean countertop and turn the dough out onto the floured surface. Pat the biscuits to be about 1/2″ thick and use a biscuit cutter to cut your biscuits (don’t have one? Use the lid of a mason jar instead).
Place the biscuits onto a greased or silicone-lined baking sheet and bake until golden. While those are cooking, cook your sausage (store-bought patties are fine, or you could make your own… I like this breakfast sausage recipe for that, or this Air Fryer Sausage recipe). Slice the warm, cooked biscuits and add your sausage patty for delicious keto breakfast sandwiches!
Can You Meal Prep Keto Biscuits with Sausage?
This recipe is great for meal prep. There are several different ways you can prep this recipe for an easy grab and go breakfast!
- If you plan to eat all within 4-5 days, simply cook and assemble the sandwiches as directed. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and heat in the microwave in 30 second increments until warm. If you plan to eat on the go, I like to wrap the sandwiches in a paper towel and then plastic wrap–Then you can just toss it into your bag and reheat at work.
- If you plan on storing these longer than 5 days, cook the biscuits and sausage and assemble the biscuits according to the recipe directions. Allow the sandwiches to cool completely and wrap tightly in foil and place in a freezer bag. Remove the sandwich when ready to eat and heat in the microwave in 30 second increments until warm.
How to store sausage and biscuits
If you plan to eat these within 4-ish days, you can store these in the fridge. You can store them separately or assembled as sandwiches–I haven’t noticed any difference. You can also freeze these up to six months (assembled or separately). Allow the biscuits and sausage to cool completely before freezing.
If freezing these assembled, I find it best to wrap the sandwiches tightly in foil (multiple times if you plan on storing them longer than 3 months… This better protects your food from freezer burn). Then store all the sandwiches in a freezer bag.
Tips and Tricks for Keto Sausage and Biscuit Recipe
- You can use unsweetened almond milk instead of heavy cream, if you want, but the fat content decreases. That’s great if you’re just low-carb, but you want a high fat content if you are keto.
- The dough will be thick; be careful not to over-mix.
- Use traditional, sage or spicy breakfast sausage to mix up the flavors. You could even fill these biscuits with chicken tenders for chicken biscuit sandwiches instead!
- You can also add a cooked egg to make a heartier breakfast sandwich if you wish.
