This Low Carb No Egg Breakfast Bake with Sausage and Peppers is a delicious idea for a breakfast without eggs, just for everyone who’s getting tired of them! I’m pretty excited about this new recipe because for eight years now people have been asking for a low-carb or South Beach Diet Phase One Breakfast without eggs.  I’ve thought about it many times, but never came up with anything until a few days ago when the idea for this Low Carb No Egg Breakfast Bake popped into my mind.

This is definitely not the most photogenic breakfast ever, but I’ve eaten it for two days now, and it’s very tasty.  Hope all the people who can’t eat eggs or are just tired of them will enjoy the idea.  (And if you don’t like peppers, have fun experimenting with other veggies.)

In my experiments I made this Low-Carb No Egg Breakfast Bake with Sausage and Peppers two different ways.  The first time I roasted the breakfast sausage and peppers together at 400F for about 40 minutes and then topped it with a little cheese and put it under the broiler. The second time I roasted the peppers alone at 450F for 20 minutes while I browned the sausage in a pan.  Then I cut up the sausage, combined the sausage and peppers and cooked them for 5 more minutes in the oven, added the cheese and broiled.

Both versions were good, and I’ll give you both options in the recipe, but I preferred the second version where the sausage is browned separately.  This definitely reheats well, so feel free to double it and use a larger baking dish to make it forWeekend Food Prep.

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, and black pepper and start to roast in a hot oven.  You can use another all-purpose seasoning blend if you don’t have Spike. I used Pre-Cooked Turkey Breakfast Sausage when I originally made this.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 the sausage you choose is gluten-free if needed. 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, toss with the sausage 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 low-fat mozzarella. 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.

  • Spike Seasoning to taste (or use any all-purpose seasoning mix that you like the flavor of)
  • fresh-ground black pepper to taste
  • 12 links (about 10 oz.) turkey or pork breakfast sausage links (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)

  7. When the peppers have cooked for 20 minutes, stir in the sausages and bake 5 minutes more.
