  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 4 keto-friendly sausages (Italian, chorizo, or your choice)

  3. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.

  4. Toss everything to coat well and spread out the ingredients in a single layer.

  5. Roast in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until the sausages are cooked through and the vegetables are tender and slightly charred.

  6. For additional browning, you can broil the sausage and peppers for 2-3 minutes at the end of the cooking time.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Sausage Choice: Look for sausages with high meat content and no fillers to keep it keto-friendly.

  • Even Cooking: Cut the peppers and onions into similar sizes for even roasting.

  • Prevent Sticking: Use parchment paper or a silicone mat on your sheet pan for easy cleanup and to prevent sticking.

  • Herbs and Spices: Feel free to add more dried spices like paprika or cayenne for extra heat.

  • Versatility: This recipe works well with any type of low-carb vegetables, so feel free to add mushrooms, zucchini, or cherry tomatoes.

  • Cooking Time: Adjust the cooking time depending on the size and type of sausages you use. Use a meat thermometer to ensure they reach 160°F (71°C) internal temperature.

  • Resting: Let the sausages rest for a few minutes after coming out of the oven. This helps to redistribute the juices for a moister sausage.

  • Final Touch: To enhance the flavors, finish the dish with a splash of vinegar (like apple cider or balsamic) for acidity and a sprinkle of fresh herbs before serving.
