This keto breakfast sandwich uses pancakes as the bun and it's filled with amazing soft scrambled eggs and a sausage patty. Top with sugar free maple syrup!
This Keto Breakfast Sandwich needs a round of applause. I mean come on...low carb pancakes as a bun, the best scrambled eggs you have ever put in your mouth, a big hunk of sausage, and if you're feeling feisty, some low carb maple syrup. You're welcome.
There are 3 components to this keto breakfast sandwich. First, let's talk about the pancakes.
I love this low carb pancake recipe because it makes fluffy pancakes and the batter is thick enough to make perfectly round pancakes that make the perfect bread for this breakfast sandwich. Hold your hats, folks, because everything in this recipe is perfect! I added a little sugar free maple syrup to the batter to sweeten them up. I cook them on medium heat and wait to flip until little bubbles start to form around the edges.
The sausage for this keto breakfast sandwich is pretty straight forward. I used half a pound of store bought breakfast sausage. I formed it into 2 patties and cooked them in my cast iron skillet. Cook it on medium-high heat and don't touch it until it forms a crust. Try to ignore the splatters all over the stovetop, unless you're OCD like me and you wipe it away while everything is still cooking. Then wipe again, and again.
Now the eggs. OMG the eggs. Do you see these eggs? They were the most amazing scrambled eggs I have ever put in my mouth and my husband concurred. I have always been known to scoff at loosely set scrambled eggs but I have been hearing lately that they are amazing that way. I though what the heck, lets give it a shot.
The key to these eggs is to use a non-stick pan over medium-low heat. I added some butter to the pan, and then my beaten eggs. I let them cook, stirring them occasionally with a rubber spatula, until they were just set. They looked like this:
I will never make scrambled eggs any other way again.
Now if you want to cheat, you can use store bought sugar free maple syrup to top your low carb breakfast sandwich. I know some people think that is a big no no but I am not one to judge. Use it with pride peeps.

Keto Breakfast Sandwich with Pancakes
- ½ lb ground breakfast sausage
- 2 tablespoon Coconut flour or ¼ cup almond flour
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 ½ tablespoon oil
- 1 tablespoon sugar free maple syrup
- pinch of salt
- cooking spray
- 4 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon butter
- kosher salt to taste
- sugar free maple syrup
- Patty up the breakfast sausage into 2 patties and place in a cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Cook on each side until a crust forms and an internal temperature reads 145F
- Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Mix all of the ingredients for the pancakes into a small bowl. Spray the skillet with cooking spray and spoon the batter into 4 round pancakes in the skillet. Let the pancakes cook until bubbles start to form in the batter around the side. Flip and continue to cook on the other side until the center on the pancake springs back when lightly touched.
- For the eggs, beat the 4 eggs in a medium sized bowl until whites and yolks are combined. Heat a medium skillet (I used the same skillet as the pancakes) over medium-low heat. Add the butter and then the beaten eggs. Let the eggs cook until the edges begin to set. push the eggs with a rubber spatula scraping the bottom of the pan. scrape occasionally to get large folds of soft scrambled eggs. When the eggs are just set and still a little runny, remove from the heat.
- To assemble the sandwiches: place a sausage patty on one pancake, followed by half of the eggs, followed by another pancake. Garnish with butter and sugar free syrup.

I just made these as an easy late dinner. They were so good!! Reminded me of a Mcgriddle!! This is going to become a regular for me! Thanks for the amazing recipe!!!
Isn’t 591 calories a lot for a woman for breakfast. I am not that familiar with how keto calculates things? I try to eat low carb but not exactly keto. Just curious. Let me know thx
It would be a nice filing breakfast. I usually eat around 500

The sausage and eggs were no surprise. I do them alot. But the pancakes I was skeptical. But I liked them. No,
they weren't the thick pancakes I'm used to but I thought they were tasty. Best part - sugar free syrup from Cracker Barrel. Best syrup and I'm picky about sugar free stuff. You can buy it at any CB store. They weren't thick enough for a sandwich but made a great breakfast!

I cooked these in my mini waffle maker and it made 4 for me. Just incase someone else was looking.
Marvelous recipe, works well even if you replace the sausage with bacon.
Great pancake texture and height. A little to eggy tasting, so added a touch of almond extract. Other than that, very good pancakes.
Eggs were very good, too.
Very good thank you
Wow! It's very detailed information about the recipe. I really try this.

So I’m on day 6 of keto and I’ve been CRAVING a good breakfast that wasn’t boring. OMG this hit the spot! Tastes just like a McMuffin breakfast sandwich from McDonalds. Probably even better! ?
