Finding nice snacks which don’t consist of either plain vegetables, or a lump of cheese can be difficult for a diabetic. Lots of snack foods have quite a large carbohydrate content, which isn’t exactly ideal for maintaining steady blood sugars. I was very pleased to discover a recipe the other day over on Diabetes Daily for “Cheese and Sausage Muffins”. These are low carb (5-6g each) and quite filling. Having said that, a batch of 5-6 can still disappear rather quickly.
1 pound sausages
3 large eggs
1 cup almond meal / almond flour
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup grated Cheddar cheese
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
- Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C)
- Remove sausage from casings
- In a mixing bowl, combine the sausage meat, egg, almond flour, cheese and salt.
- Mix together well.
- Divide evenly between 5 or 6 greased muffin tins.
- Bake for 25-30 mins.
Make sure they are thoroughly cooked all of the way through!
So far, I’ve tried this recipe with plain Beef, plain Pork and Pork with Chorizo sausages, and they all taste great. You could add BBQ sauce to give them a bit more of a kick, or use any type of sausage you prefer – I’d love to hear about any new sausage combinations which work particularly well.
