Keto sausage cheese biscuits. The best thing I’ve ever eaten.

Keto sausage cheese biscuits. The best thing I’ve ever eaten.

This recipe is made with a version of fathead dough. I am sure you have heard of it! If you haven’t, it is a low carb and keto friendly, gluten free version of dough that works great for pizza, roll, bread and of course biscuits! Fathead dough uses melted mozzarella cheese as the “gluten” to hold the dough together. The flour is typically almond or coconut.

If you are craving a breakfast sandwich, you have to try these Fathead dough biscuits that are stuffed with breakfast sausage and cheese! These are a hearty breakfast option, and perfect for those who want to skip eggs! The Fathead dough is gluten free and made with almond flour! They are keto and low carb approved!  These stuffed biscuits are great to make ahead of time, and then grab and go when you are in a rush!  I try to keep on hand often because life can get hectic, and I want to have good breakfast options for myself and family!
Now if you want to change things up, you can add in other ingredients into the filling to fit your taste. You could toss in some fresh veggies like peppers, mushrooms, diced tomatoes. It only makes these biscuits even tastier! I prefer the classic sausage and cheese pairing, but you can always adjust it to fit exactly what you and your family prefer.
One thing that most people who follow a keto or low carb diet find is giving up bread, rolls, biscuits.  I know as a bread lover it is something that can be hard to give up. But with the Fathead dough, this makes for a great alternative and gives you that biscuit flavor and texture your might be craving! Fathead dough can be used for making pizza crust, soft dinner rolls, and more. If you live a keto or low carb lifestyle and haven’t tried any of the Fathead dough recipes, I highly recommend you do.


Note- you will have fathead dough leftover. Also, the amount of dough used by each person to wrap around the sausage will vary so much that I can only give an estimated nutrition count.  Per stuffed biscuit- 250c , 20f, 12p, 2 net carbs. 

Makes 6 stuffed keto breakfast biscuit

 Servings 6


2 ounces cream cheese

2 cups mozzarella shredded

2 eggs beaten

1 cup almond flour

pinch salt & pepper

2 ounces colby jack cheese thin cubes (or your choice of cheese)

6 breakfast sausage patties “jeannie-o turkey sausage preferred”


In a microwave safe bowl, add cream cheese and mozzarella.

Microwave for 30 seconds at a time until cream cheese is very soft and mozzarella starts to melt.

Mix well! And by mix well I mean, stir stir stir! You want this really combined.

In a small separate bowl, combine beaten egg and almond flour. Add cheese mixture and mix well, again, REALLY well.

Dough may be sticky, this is ok. Dust it with additional almond flour and form into a ball. Place on plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm.

Cut into sections to form 6 3″ balls, depending on the size of the sausage.

Flatten dough balls, place sausage on the dough, then cheese and wrap dough around.

Put the stuffed dough into a greased muffin tin.

Bake at 400  for 12-15 minutes or until golden and set. Top with more mozzarella if desired.
