Keto Sausage tray bake
Dan was brought up on sausages, as budget was a big consideration in her family of 6. Her family would have sausages cooked on the BBQ 1-2 times a week. This means sausages have become one of Dan’s favourite go to dinners. It used to be sausages in white bread and BBQ sauce. She has had to adapt her favourite way of eating sausages and she has recently come to love this keto sausage tray bake. She has even had it for breakfast a couple of times paired with a couple of fried eggs. Delicious.
Erika enjoys the ease of this keto sausage tray bake. She isn’t a fan of cooking on the BBQ, so developed a different way to cook Dan’s favourite sausages. One of the easiest ways to make any dish is to put it all on one tray and it all cooks together in the oven. Sheet pan dinners have risen in popularity, for the simplicity of them. Working families are finding these types of dinner, easy to prepare, but still using real food with fresh ingredients.
Erika has even found a way to get Dan to love brussel sprouts again. Surely everyone has a story of being forced to eat horrible, overcooked, boiled brussel sprouts in their youth. Dan definitely does. Brussel sprouts work perfectly with bacon. Coating them in bacon fat and adding the crunchiness of the bacon, counteracts the softness of a cooked brussel sprout. So, sausages, bacon and brussel sprouts are the perfect combo for Dan.
Sausages on keto
Not all sausages are created equal on a keto diet. Many available at the supermarket have a lot of fillers, soy, wheat, sugar and vegetable oils. When looking for the best keto options, you want to find some that have a few good clean ingredients. There are few decent keto options available to us here in Australia.
In the large supermarkets in Australia, we have found the following options:
- Cleavers Beef Paleo Sausages. At 1g of net carbs per sausage, these fair extremely well as a keto sausage.
- Beak and Sons Godfather pork and beef sausages. At 1g of net carbs per sausage, these are another one of our favourite sausages to use.
- Paleo Beef Chipolatas. These sausages do contain some honey, taking that into account, they are still only 2.7g per serve and would be manageable for some keto lifestyles.
- Coles finest Gluten Free Angus Beef Blended With Garlic & Parsley Sausages At 2g of net carbs per sausage, these sausages present themselves as a great tasty keto sausage.
- Cleavers hot dogs We love these hot dogs as a low carb option. We have been known to make hot dogs on a plate with these delicious hot dogs. At less that 1g net carbs, these are the best we have ever found.
Another option is to talk to your local butcher about what goes into their sausages and if they have a low carb option. Don’t be afraid to ask what goes into the sausages they have and if they have a nutritional panel. Most butchers are happy to please, so don’t hesitate to ask.
- If you can’t find chipolatas that are a good low carb option, you can use beef or pork sausages. This may change the cooking times. Check they are completely cooked through prior to serving.
- Choose a fattier cut of bacon for this recipe. The more bacon fat that comes out of the bacon when cooking, the better flavour will be added to the brussel sprouts when you add them to the pan. If your pan doesn’t have much bacon fat in the pan after cooking the bacon, you can add some lard or saved bacon grease prior to adding the sprouts and tossing through.
- As this is a sheet pan dinner, there is no need to serve this with anything extra. Everything you need for this meal is on the sheet pan and this keto sausage tray bake is perfect as is.
