What is sausage?

Sausage is a meat product typically made from ground meat and spices. The mixture is filled into a casing and used for various recipes or stand-alone for grilling or oven baking.

Different types of sausages exist, from plain and raw, smoked, cured, dried, to even blood sausages. 

Can you eat sausage on keto?

You can certainly eat sausages on a keto diet as they usually supposed to only contain meat and some kind of seasoning.
When you are purchasing sausages in the supermarket, please check the ingredients as some are filled with additives and starches.

For the best easy stuffed sausage option, you can make your own keto sausage from a complete scratch using sausage links following our simple recipe.

How many carbs are in sausage?

Homemade sausage without any preservatives, starches, or sugar contains 0 carbohydrates. 
As meat does not contain any carbohydrates, the only carb content you might get are from the different seasonings.

I have tried and hand-picked all of the seasonings in our recipe, which are a perfect fit for our lifestyle and allow us to still be in 0 net carbs per serving brackets. 

How many calories are in a low carb sausage?

One medium-sized homemade sausage has approximately 140 calories, which is a perfect number if you plan to add some sides, biscuits, or salad. 

History of sausages

Sausage making has been a tradition for centuries to preserve meat. 

The mention of making sausages comes already from ancient Greek, Romans, and tribes occupying Europe. 

In China, the Northern and Southern dynasties made Chinese sausages called Lap Cheong from around 598 BC to 420 BC.

Sausage making rituals

Where I come from, making sausages is a yearly ritual before Christmas around November, when it is already cold. Slaughtering during winter, with cold weather, prevents the meat from going bad and is easier to store. 

It has been much cheaper to grow your animals on the farms and subsequently makes all of the goodies from it for the whole year. 

These days the slaughtering rituals are slowly dying as people shop more and more in the supermarkets, and having your animals becomes much more expensive. 

Types of sausages to use in keto cooking

Generally speaking, all types of sausages should be keto or at least low carb. All sausages are made from meat, which is 100% keto. 

Sausages come in variety of forms, be it beef, pork sausage, chicken sausage, veal, duck, goat, lamb, turkey sausage, venison, mutton, bison, goose, rabbit, or pheasant.  

You can also pick from smoked sausage, kielbasa, breakfast sausage, bratwurst and much more.

Swapping our seasoning with Italian seasoning, you can prepare delicious keto Italian sausage recipes such as famous keto Italian sausage meatballs.

It always depends on what additional ingredients are in the mixture. You can use all of the meat types mentioned above for making your own sausages. And you know exactly what goes in.

If you buy a sausage from the store, please always read the labels. 

There are so many hidden ingredients in some products you would not even think of. Some have starches, different types of sugars, or syrups, and some contain additional flavoring, all filled with carbohydrates.

As long as you buy sausages and properly read all the ingredients, you are perfect to go. 

What can you make using sausages?

Having sausages at home, various dishes can be made.

Apart of our selection, you can also prepare a perfect keto meal from:

  • mix them with zucchini, kale, cauliflower or broccoli for a perfect frittata side dish

Beef sausage keto recipes

As I have made my own sausage at home from beef, I also made all of the recipes using my sausages.

Therefore all of the recipes in this post are beef sausage recipes. But it does not matter the type of meat. All of the recipes are made in a way, that you can use your choice of ground meat. 

Beyond sausage recipes

Even though I am going to share with you some great keto sausage recipes, I would like to first give you a brief overview of how easy it is to cook a sausage either in the oven or an Air Fryer.

How to make keto sausages?

As a base, I will take our homemade sausage as an example. Our sausage contains only ground meat and sausage seasoning. All filled in a natural casing, there is nothing else involved. The sausage is made with raw meat and is not smoked, cured, or dried. 

To get your sausages fully baked, I suggest poking a few holes through the casing using a fork.

Cooking low carb Italian sausage on a skillet

One option is to cook your sausages on a skillet over the stove

  1. switch the stove to medium high temperature
  2. Place your sausages into the skillet slightly covered with oil.
  3. Roast from each side.
  4. Cover the skillet and let it cook for another 25 minutes. Cooking time really depends on a size and thickness of your sausages.
  5. You can choose to place the skillet into the oven and bake for 30 minutes on 200 Celsius or 400 Fahrenheit.

Cooking low-carb sausages in the oven on a sheet pan or casserole

This simple instruction on how to cook sausage in the oven will be a great help for you.

  1. Preheat your oven to 200 Celsius or 400 Fahrenheit
  2. Place sausages onto the baking sheet covered with parchment paper
  3. Depending on the size of your sausages, bake in the oven for approximately 30 minutes, turning the sausages after 15 minutes. 
  4. Enjoy your sheet pan dinner

  1. Place your sausages into an Air Fryer basket
  2. Set Air Fryer to 200 Celsius or 400 Fahrenheit
  3. Air Fry for approximately 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the sausage. 
  4. Serve

Storing easy stuffed sausages

Once you prepare and make your own sausages using our simple to make great recipe, it is perfect to keep the sausage in an airtight container in your fridge for 1 to 2 days until its time to cook. I would suggest to use them immediately and all the raw sausage leftovers freeze.
