Update for 2020: Right now McDonald’s breakfast hours are from 6am till 10:30 am or as early as 5am in some locations while the future of all day breakfast is in limbo.

If you show up at breakfast time however… there are some great keto friendly options at MD’s!

Low Carb McDonald’s Breakfast – What to order

My recommendations below are ranked based on their taste and how filling they are. Macros are estimated from McDonald’s online nutritional calculator.

1. Sausage McMuffin with Egg (No English Muffin)

Comes with an egg patty, a sausage patty, and a slice of cheese. This is my favorite bunless breakfast sandwich at McDonald’s because the sausage and egg patty combo makes it indulgent and filling.

  • Order it low carb: “Sausage McMuffin with Egg, no English muffin)”
  • Price: $2.95
  • Macros: 340 calories and 3 net carbs

2. Egg McMuffin (No English Muffin)

The Egg McMuffin is the most popular McDonald’s breakfast sandwich. The low carb version comes with an egg patty, Canadian bacon, and slice of cheese.

  • Order it low carb: “Egg McMuffin, no bun”
  • Price: $2.95
  • Macros: 160 calories and 3 net carbs

This bunless Egg McMuffin is delicious and low carb, but only has 160 calories so you might need two to get full. It’s a perfect Keto McDonald’s Breakfast.

3. Sausage Egg and Cheese Biscuit (No Biscuit)

This one is similar to the bunless Sausage McMuffin except they give you a yellow folded egg instead of a white egg patty. Comes with folded egg, sausage patty, and a slice of cheese.

  • Order it low carb: “Sausage Egg and Cheese Biscuit, no biscuit”
  • Price: $3.55
  • Macros: 224 calories and 1 net carb

4. Steak Egg & Cheese Biscuit (No Biscuit)

Comes with folded egg, grilled onions, slice of cheese, and a steak patty. I love the novelty of this option, but the cheese stuck to the tray (a common hazard of bunless breakfast orders) so that impacted my rating.

  • Order it low carb: “Steak Egg and Cheese Biscuit, no biscuit”
  • Price: $4.25
  • Macros: 294 calories and 4 net carbs

5. Bacon Egg and Cheese Biscuit (No Biscuit)

Comes with folded egg, slice of cheese, and 2 small strips of bacon.

  • Order it low carb: “Bacon Egg and Cheese Biscuit, no biscuit”
  • Price: $3.35
  • Macros: 190 calories and 3 net carbs

Two strips of bacon have half the calories of a sausage patty and that makes this sandwich less filling than I like. Plan to order two to get full.

6. Egg White Delight McMuffin (No English Muffin)

The Egg White Delight is the lowest calorie bunless breakfast sandwich option. It’s also delicious. Comes with egg white, Canadian bacon, and white cheese. The white cheese is an appreciated novelty, but removing the bun exposes this sandwiches lack of depth.

  • Price: $3.15
  • Macros: 120 calories and 3 net carbs

7. Bacon, Egg and Sausage Plate (ala carte)

You can make yourself a keto friendly breakfast platter by telling the cashier you want eggs, bacon, and sausage ala carte. I got scrambled eggs, but I’m guessing you could get egg patties instead.

  • Order it low carb: “Ala carter plate of bacon, sausage, and eggs”
  • Price: $3.84
  • Macros: 460 calories and 4 net carbs

This is a good pick if you’re looking for value as you can get almost 500 calories of low carb food for less than $4.

8. Two Sausage Burritos (No Tortilla)

Comes with scrambled eggs, sausage crumbles, green chiles, and onions. It’s also supposed to have melted cheese but I didn’t notice any on mine. This is as close as you’ll get to a McDonald’s low carb breakfast bowl.

  • Price: $2.30
  • Macros: 200 calories and 4 net carbs

Beyond the entrees listed above, you can order bunless McGriddles or Big Breakfast platters without the biscuits, pancakes, and hashbrowns but you’ll still end up with one of the variations above once the carb heavy ingredients are removed.

If you’re into customization and experimentation or do frequent low carb McDonald’s orders, I’d recommend ordering custom bunless breakfast sandwich with a sausage patty, egg patty, and a slice of white cheddar cheese. That combines 3 of my favorite McDonald’s breakfast ingredients into one delicious entree.

Keto McDonald’s Breakfast – What To Avoid

In case you’re new to ordering low carb breakfast, I’ll point out that you can’t have McDonald’s breakfast buns, tortillas, hash browns, pancakes, biscuits, bagels, syrup or griddle cakes. They’re all too high carb.

You should also avoid the Fruit N Yogurt Parfait and the Fruit and Maple Oatmeal which some people think are healthy based on their names, but have way too many carbs.

  1. Hi Ryan, is there any way to get a copy of your book in addition to the downloaded version? I saw a link to order both but I waited too long and can’t find it now. I would love to have both. Thanks.

  2. An interesting tidbit: I tried ordering a sausage burrito at my McDonalds sans tortilla, but they said it’s premade and they wouldn’t do it. I went ahead and ordered, and requested a fork; of course, some of the melted cheese pulls a thin layer of tortilla with it. Saw this article while looking for low-carb Taco Bell. Thanks for your thorough research!

  3. Just a heads up on any of the sandwiches they may let you sub the standard egg with a folded egg (at least my local will) which I prefer.

  4. Thanks for putting this together. I’m curious why the sausage mcmuffin (sausage egg cheese – 344) is so much higher than the sausage biscuit (sausage egg cheese – 224) – just less egg?

  5. Hi Ryan, love your guides man. Unfortunately I found this website stole a lot of your content – Just wanted to give you a heads up.
