This is my most favourite breakfast! It’s SO delicious it’s unreal. At just 5g of carbs per serving, I can eat this knowing that I don’t have to worry about my blood glucose levels spiking.
Ensure that you check the carb amount on the sausages you use. In the past, I have purchased sausages without checking the carb amount only to find that my blood glucose levels spiked. Upon investigation, I found that the sausages were the culprits. If you are unable to find low carb sausages, you could omit them and make your own meatballs as an alternative.
If you are concerned about the fat content, I have tried this recipe with reduced fat cheese and it worked just as well and still tasted delicious! You could also trim the fat off of the bacon and use low-fat sausages (once again, check the carb amount as low fat can often mean high carb).
