Scotch Eggs

October 8, 2012

By:  Coach Maria – Salus Nutritionist & Food Expert

Probably one of the easiest meal or snack to throw together. 

Traditionally, Scotch Eggs are hard boiled eggs wrapped in pork sausage, rolled in breadcrumbs and deep fried.  Contrary to assumptions, Scotch Eggs did not originate in Scotland, but rather in England.

A popular picnic snack, Scotch Eggs are eaten cold and usually with a side salad.

Wanting the flavor of Scotch Eggs, but not the effects of pork sausage, breadcrumbs or even deep fried foods, I decided to make a few substitutions.

The end result was surprisingly tasty and, with such an easy method of preparation and no required re-heating, it will become a convenient snack to have in my fridge for those grab-and-go moments.

There are many variations of this recipe and I encourage you to create your own!

makes 8

1.5 lbs ground beef (you can use any variety of meat or sausage, including ground chicken or turkey)
8 hard boiled eggs
spices of choice
almond flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix your ground beef with any desired spices or herbs (optional).
With your hands, wrap some ground beef around the hard boiled egg until evenly and completely covered.
Roll in almond flour.
Repeat with remaining eggs.
Roll in almond flour again and place on baking sheet.
Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until meat is fully cook.
