This keto breakfast hash recipe is made with savory smoked sausage and sautéed peppers and onions. We top it all off with fried eggs!
It probably comes as no surprise that bacon is our go to breakfast protein – I mean, what’s not to love about crispy fried bacon?
But, I absolutely HATE cooking bacon. We often do air fryer bacon, but I’m also just trying to branch out and incorporate other proteins into our breakfast rotation and that’s where this smoked sausage hash comes into play!
- Packed with veggies so your day is off to a good start.
- Easy to customize with different veggies or protein.
- Protein packed and very filling.
- Easy to make ahead and reheat.
Smoked Sausage – Be sure to look for a smoked sausage with just 2 net carbs per 2 ounce servings. If you’re using one with more carbs, just adjust the nutrition information accordingly.
Eggs – We top this breakfast hash with sunny side up eggs and let the yolks run down and flavor the veggies. You can cook your eggs to whatever doneness you prefer.
Peppers & Onion – We prefer red peppers, but will sometimes do a mix of each. Use whichever you like best.
- Sausage – Slice into rounds and the sear in a hot skillet with a little butter. Set aside, but leave the grease in the pan.
- Veggies – Saute your peppers and onions until tender crisp.
- Eggs – Fry the eggs while the veggies cook. like my eggs sunny side up in this keto breakfast hash recipe but you can cook them however you prefer. See below for some tips on how to make the perfect sunny side up eggs!
- Assemble – Once the eggs have finished cooking and the vegetables are tender-crisp you can return the cooked smoked sausage to the skillet and finally top it all off with the fried eggs!
The best way to prepare eggs sunny side up is to heat enough oil to liberally cover the bottom of your skillet. Carefully crack an egg into a small dish and then slide it into the hot oil. Cook until the whites are no longer translucent and then spoon the hot oil over the top of the egg onto the yolk, about every 30 seconds, until the egg whites have fully set.
Technically most breakfast hash recipes are a mix of meat, potatoes, and fried onions. We’re cutting out the potatoes and ading in peppers. You could also call this a keto breakfast skillet.
Store this tightly covered in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat in the microwave when ready to serve. For best results, make the eggs fresh on the day you’d like to eat them and just serve the freshly cooked egg over the reheated hash.

- To make your eggs sunny side up, add enough oil to cover the bottom of the skillet generously. When the oil is hot, carefully crack an egg into the skillet. Cook until the whites are no longer translucent and spoon hot oil over the yolk. Continue cooking until the whites are completely set, spooning more oil over the yolk every 30 seconds or so. Repeat with remaining eggs. Alternately, fry the eggs over-easy, over-hard, or over-medium as you prefer.

This dish is perfect with a variety of vegetables (asparagus, radishes, broccoli, etc.) or another type of protein, such as crumbled breakfast sausage or diced ham.
When making ahead, we like to prepare the sausage and veggie portion and store in the fridge. While that is reheating in the microwave, we fry the eggs fresh. You can reheat eggs in the microwave, but it's not our favorite.
Shredded cheese sprinkled over the top is always a tasty addition.
