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 called Green’s in the tiny town of Zabcikville just east of Temple, TX.  It is quite the popular place with the locals.   Folks in surrounding cities, like us, often drive over to enjoy a meal on site and also bring home some of their wonderful sausages.  My brother just loved their breakfast smokies and just had to have some each time he flew 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.  Recently they have added their homemade sauerkraut to that burger.

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!

  1. Hello, Peggy, Wanted to thank you for this recipe. I have been looking for 6 months, since starting the LCHF way of life, to find a good “bread” recipe. This looks like the one! I also am happy to have your sausage recipe and poultry seasoning recipe! Your sharing these great recipes is truly, deeply appreciated! I am disabled but have been able to lose 25 pounds in 6 months, which is incredible! I have about 50 pounds to go, but now I know I can do it! Much of my success has been due to generous, caring folks like you who have been willing to share their knowledge and their tried-and-tested recipes. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

    • Kudos on your wight loss so far, Joy. I share my recipes so that folks like you can be successful. My Mom was living there in S.A. at AF Village until she passed last July. I have spent much time and made many a trip there over the years.


  2. Peggy, I’ve followed you for YEARS – and never realized you were in Texas! Thanks for posting this – and now I have a question. In what city is this Czech market? That style of cooking is part of my heritage, and my family would probably love a trip to their market!
