Low Carb No-Egg Breakfast Bake with Sausage and Peppers is a delicious idea for a breakfast without eggs, and I think everyone who eats low-carb gets tired of eggs for breakfast, right? For years and years people kept asking me for a low-carb breakfast without eggs, and then one day this idea just popped into my mind.
And recently I thought about this no-egg breakfast and started making it again, so I thought I’d remind everyone else who might have forgotten about it! I hope the people who can’t eat eggs or are just tired of them will enjoy the idea of a breakfast bake with veggies, sausage, and cheese.
And if you don’t like peppers, have fun experimenting with other veggies. And this reheats very well, so if you have a few low-carb eaters in the house you might want to double the recipe and use a larger dish to make this for Weekend Food Prep!

How to Make Low-Carb No-Egg Breakfast Bake with Sausage and Peppers:
(This is only a summary of the steps for the recipe; please scroll down for complete printable recipe. Or if you use the JUMP TO RECIPE link at the top of the page, it will take you directly to the complete recipe.)
- Cut up a red bell pepper and a green bell pepper into pieces about an inch across. (You can use any color of peppers.)
- Put peppers into a sprayed baking dish, toss with a little olive oil, Spike Seasoning (affiliate link), and black pepper and start to roast in a hot oven.
- Heat a tiny bit of oil in a non-stick pan and brown the sausage until they’re nicely browned on all sides, about 10-12 minutes.
- When the sausage is nicely browned, cut each piece into thirds, so you have bite-sized pieces of sausage.
- After the peppers have roasted 20 minutes, add the sausage to the dish and cook 5 minutes more. (Or longer if you don’t like the peppers slightly crisp like I do.)
- While the sausage browns, measure 1/2 cup mozzarella (or more).
- Turn the oven to BROIL and sprinkle mozzarella over the top of the sausage-pepper mixture.
- Broil until the cheese is all melted and starting to brown, about 2 minutes for my broiler. (Watch it carefully, especially if your broiler is pretty hot.)
- I put the leftovers into serving-size containers and it reheated well in the microwave.

Low Carb No-Egg Breakfast Bake with Sausage and Peppers
Low-Carb No-Egg Breakfast Bake with Sausage and Peppers is a delicious low-carb breakfast without eggs.
- 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 large red bell pepper, chopped (or use any color of peppers you prefer)
- 1 1/2 tsp. olive oil
- Spike Seasoning to taste (or use any all-purpose seasoning mix that you like the flavor of)
- fresh-ground black pepper to taste
- 10 oz. pre-cooked turkey or pork breakfast sausage links of your choice (see notes)
- 1/2 cup grated Mozzarella cheese
- Preheat oven to 450F/230C.

- Cut away the stem part and cut out seeds of the red and green bell pepper and chop peppers into pieces about an inch across.
- Put peppers into the baking dish, toss with 1 teaspoon olive oil, sprinkle with Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) and fresh-ground black pepper, and put the dish in the oven and bake 20 minutes.

- Serve hot.
I used Pre-Cooked Turkey Breakfast Sausage when I originally made this. If you use uncooked turkey breakfast sausage you'll need to cook it a bit longer. For low-carb or Keto diets use pork sausage, or any higher-fat sausage you prefer. Be sure to look for gluten-free sausage if needed.
This keeps well in the fridge, so don’t be afraid to double the recipe if you have a larger baking dish. I package mine in individual refrigerator dishes and heated about 1-2 minutes in the microwave the next morning.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
With higher-fat pork sausage and cheese this Low-Carb No-Egg Breakfast Bake would be perfect for traditional low-carb eating plans, including Keto. When you use lean turkey breakfast sausage and low-fat cheese, it would be great for all phases of the South Beach Diet.

I’ve made this several times over the last few years. Always a favorite. Great for brunches, breakfast, lunch or dinner! If you don’t have a green pepper on hand, I have used red, yellow and orange peppers and always good. Simple, simple to make and a great visual presentation.
Thanks for the kind thoughts! So glad you have been enjoying it!
Hello there, I found out about your blog by means of Google while searching for a similar subject, your site came up, it appears good. Good job on your writeup.
I love this recipe because it’s so easy and delicious. My husband likes it and it’s so good he doesn’t realize he’s eating a low carb meal!
Hi Terri. I am all about easy! So glad to hear you’ve been enjoying it.
Saw recipe for breakfast casserole & thought ‘Great!’, until I read cheese& mushrooms (both bad for me. Looked at other recipes. Seems most have cheese. I can have dairy, but not fermented dairy.
I would look in the category for Dairy Free to find recipes that will work for you.
This looks delish! Loving having this still delicious option for breakfast but having it a little bit healthier!
How can I print this recipe? I do not see a Print button to click.
If you scroll down to the actual recipe (inside a box) there is a green button that says PRINT RECIPE right under the thumbnail photo.
I am currently not able to add nutritional information to the site. More than a year ago I switched my site to WordPress, which created the need to edit by hand to add more than 2,000 recipes to the preferred format for google. I have been working on that for more than a year, so there is no possibility of me being able to calculate nutritional information until that project is completed. And I know that once I start doing nutrition info on one recipe people will expect to see it on every recipe, which is why I have decided to keep these two projects completely separate.
If you look after the recipe itself, I give two links (where it says “Nutritional Information”) for suggestions of two ways to get that information. That’s all I am able to do at this time.
Thanks Janice! I try to be nice in the comments, but some people really do get to me with their sense of entitlement!
I guess you won’t see this because this article’s a year old now, but thank you for posting a savoury breakfast recipe that doesn’t contain eggs!
Every comment comes to my e-mail, and I do try to reply to most of them! So glad you are enjoying it!
Thank you. I am allergic to eggs and I am diabetic so finding breakfast options has become challenging. I make a similar dish as dinner and hadn’t considered adapting it to breakfast. By the way, the one I make has fresh tomatoes diced and tossed in just long long enough to warm at the end. It adds a lovely crisp tang. Again, thank you for sharing this.
So glad you like it. I do like the sound of your version with some fresh tomato!
Sorry, I don’t know anything about My Fitness Pal. I do see them in my stats, so I know they feature my recipes, but I don’t know if people track the nutritional information through there.
And I am pretty sure that a Keto eater who feels that way can substitute a different brand of sausage and use a seasoning they prefer.
Quoting from the recipe: (I used Low-Fat and Pre-Cooked Jimmy Dean Turkey Breakfast Sausage, for low-carb or Keto diet you should use pork sausage or other higher-fat sausage of your choice)
And for the Spike Seasoning: (or use any all-purpose seasoning mix that you like the flavor of)
Why the need to lecture me about what I used? Doesn’t everyone get to make their own food choices? That has always been my personal philosophy, and “food police” comments aren’t really welcome here.
Not sure why you left a comment scolding me instead of just adapting the recipe to your diet. That doesn’t really seem so difficult. You must be unaware that I started this site when I was following the South Beach Diet, which does recommend lower fat meats and cheeses. As my diet has changed to a more carb-conscious approach (and as my blog has evolved to one with recipes suitable for many types of diets), I have been editing posts to reflect the options on recipes. But there are 2,200 recipes on the site, and obviously I hadn’t gotten to this one yet.
Also, BEFORE I edited the post, the diet suggestions says this, “When you use lean turkey breakfast sausage and low-fat cheese, this low-glycemic breakfast would be great for all phases of the South Beach Diet. With higher-fat sausage and cheese it would be perfect for traditional low-carb eating plans, including Keto.”
Just found this recipe and comments while browsing.
Thank you for standing up to people who find it necessary to scold or criticize others because something doesn’t suit their needs or because they have to show they know better. In this case, they may be improving their physical state, but they also need to work on the mental.
I’m going to check out your site and more of your recipes.
