Cheesy Sausage Puffs (The BEST Low Carb Keto Snack)

This quick and easy low carb keto recipe is delicious for breakfast or snacking throughout the day, and perfect for on the go! 

Servings 35 puffs

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Jimmy Dean Sausage (I like the hot variety)
  • 2 cups freshly shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 4.5 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp sour cream (or softened cream cheese)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour (heaping)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder (optional, but I love garlic!)

Instructions

  1. Melt the butter and set it aside to cool.

  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a large baking sheet with non-stick foil or parchment paper. 

  3. Brown the sausage, chopping it into small chunks. Pat it dry with a paper towel to remove excess grease; set aside. 

  4. In a medium to large size bowl, combine the melted butter, eggs, sour cream, salt and garlic. Whisk together. 

  5. Add the coconut flour (slightly more than 1/3 cup) and baking powder to the mixture and whisk until well combined. 

  6. Stir in the browned sausage and cheese. 

  7. Roll or drop batter into 1 inch balls onto your lined baking sheet. I make 35 and they fit perfectly (5 rows of 7). They only need to be about 1/2 inch apart. 

  8. Bake for 14-18 minutes or until slightly browned. Enjoy immediately, and store any leftovers in the fridge for up to a week.
