This super-low carb dish is something I often cook when I have a solo lunch at home. Getting the right sausage is one of the most important parts – and making sure that the carb content of the sausage is low. A good quality sausage without extra items like apple may not contain any carbohydrates at all. Spicy sausages work really well in this dish but I have also been known to add some red pepper flakes instead!
Chop two cooked sausages and place them in a small baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Add a dash of heavy cream and crack two eggs over the top, trying not to break the yolks!
Bake it in a preheated oven for 10 minutes, then add some shredded cheese over the top. An Italian or Mexican blend works well! Return it to the oven for another 10 minutes or until the egg whites have cooked.
The combination of meat, cheese, cream and gooey egg is fantastic!
