I had to make a lifestyle change in order to lose the weight and keep the weight off. Part of that change was researching foods and determining what I could and couldn’t eat.
Immediately after my surgery, I was on an extremely low carb diet for months. A permanent food in my diet has been eggs. However, one gets tired of just plain eggs. Throughout the years, I’ve been getting creative with egg recipes.

Low Carb Frittata
Serves 1. You can make multiple times though.
- 2 large Eggs
- 1 breakfast Sausage Patty, chopped
- 1 tablespoon of chopped Spring Onions
- 1 tablespoon of chopped Bell Peppers
- 2 tablespoons of Cheddar cheese
- 1 tablespoon of Melted Butter
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Generously grease a 4 inch cake pan ( like pictured below or the one I used for the recipe- either work and fit) or a mini loaf pan (or any oven safe pan that fits in your air-fryer basket) with butter.
Add the chopped up breakfast sausage in the greased pan and air fry at 350F for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl, crack 2 eggs. Add salt and pepper and whisk it well.
Add the chopped spring onion, bell peppers and mix well.
Once the sausage is cooked, add the egg mixture. Mix well with the sausages.
Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and air fry at 350 F for another 5 minutes.
Serve hot with fresh tomato salsa for a delicious low carb breakfast.
- Instead of spring onion and bell peppers, feel free to use any other vegetable combination you like – mushrooms, broccoli, spinach, tomatoes are all great options.
- Feel free to substitute breakfast sausage with bacon, ham or even shredded chicken.
