Texas-Size Sausage “Biscuit”


You know what they say:  Everything’s bigger in TEXAS!   :)  Just down the road 10 miles from me is a wonderful Czech Sausage House and Meat Market.  It is quite the popular place with the locals.   Folks in surrounding cities, like us, often drive over to enjoy or bring home some of their wonderful Czech sausage.  My brother, who lives near Seattle, just LOVES their breakfast smokies and just has to have some each time he flies down to Texas. 🙂

In the cafe by the meat market, they have a Sausage Burger on the menu.  Curious, I ordered it one day for lunch a few years back.  Much to my surprise, it was made with their bulk pork sausage, rather than their smoked sausage.  It was VERY good and frankly, similar to a typical sausage biscuit anywhere, only theirs is served on a hamburger bun, not a biscuit.

That menu item was the inspiration for my low-carb Texas-size Sausage “Biscuit” pictured above.   They are pretty darn good made with my version of the low-carb Oopsie Rolls (also known as a Revo Rolls).   I dotted mine with sesame seeds so it would look just like the Sausage Burger I had at the cafe that day, even if the sausage was my own recipe.  Who says you have to eat eggs all the time for breakfast on Atkins?  :)  This breakfast is Induction friendly if you leave off the sesame seeds on the bun.  If you’re into sausage-cheese biscuits, I say GO FOR IT!

2 pieces Peggy’s Sandwich Buns (omit sesame seeds if on Induction):

3 oz. pork sausage (preferably homemade for 0 carbs)

DIRECTIONS:  Form a large, thin patty with the sausage meat and cook in skillet until browned and done.  Lightly toast one of the buns in the broiler to brown it a bit more after they are baked.  Sandwich the sausage between two buns and enjoy!

  3. Where I can get the diet to start a low carb diet I would like to buy cookbook also & which one to start thanks so much for recipes. .


    • If just starting out, Elaine, you might click the Atkins tab at the top of the page and be linked to the official information and learning tools. Their on-line courses and reading materials are extremely helpful. I did the courses and found them valuable, but not absolutely essential for success. To be sure you are doing it right, I liked the book Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution best. It’s an easy to read (he had an amazing sense of humor) and easy to understand. I have read the newer book, but prefer the basic one best. There are some recipes in that book, and of course, many on-line blogs like mine with many, many more. All of the cookbooks in the series LOW CARBING AMONG FRIENDS at the right side of the page are also very good cookbooks. They are available individually, too! Best of luck with your new eating plan. It’s the healthiest out there I think. 🙂
