Finally, a new breakfast recipe everyone can agree on, Keto Breakfast Pepper Rings! My kids could eat the same thing every single morning! That’s fine most mornings. During the school year, it’s all I can do to keep up with keto lunches, so I’m okay with letting them eat their Keto Sausage & Cheese Skillet, but I’m over it. I usually make my breakfast once I see everyone off but yesterday everyone cheered when they tasted what they were sure they would hate!

Can you imagine cooking for these kids? 😉 I love them, but they are not an easy crew to deal with in the morning! I try to be sympathetic. Every other kid is eating sugary cereal, and they miss it, I get it. They miss Pop-Tarts and Go-Gurts and all the other fun names for sugar. They live in a country where they are bombarded by a drug at every corner, and this drug is legal and deadly, it’s not fair to any of us.
Keto Breakfast Pepper Rings Recipe:
Unfortunately for them, they are stuck with “that mom,” the one that will cook three meals a day (or two and serves leftovers, which is even worse). I’m okay with being “that mom, ” and I hope you are too.
The kids were sure this recipe wouldn’t pass the approval test because it contained the dreaded “wet egg.” This is a term that my children use for any egg they deem undercooked. Also known as any egg that’s not overcooked. Thankfully they were wrong, and I won this debate much like… nevermind, this is a food blog, we don’t talk politics here. 🙂 Scared you for a minute there didn’t I?!
Keto Breakfast Pepper Rings Ingredients:
Red Bell Peppers
1 lb Breakfast Sausage
4 Tbsp Shredded Parmesan Cheese
Salt & Pepper
Keto Breakfast Pepper Rings Directions:
In a small skillet brown breakfast sausage and drain, then set aside.
Remove the tops from your red peppers and cleaning out the seeds. Cut peppers on a cutting board into 4 rings.
Heat 2 Tbsp of Coconut Oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place peppers in the skillet and let them cook while the oil heats.
Once the oil starts to sizzle crack one egg into each ring. Be sure to pour the egg into the ring slowly, so it has time to seal around the bottom of the ring. Some of the egg may leak out or overflow.
Salt and pepper each ring to taste then add 2 Tbsp of sausage around the yolk of each ring.
Cook eggs to desired doneness. I broke the yokes for the kids but still left them runny; I made my eggs over easy. The choice is yours.
Carefully remove eggs from pan and top with 1/2 Tbsp of Parmesan cheese.
