This can be you!! The question isn't WHY? it's WHY NOT? Just do it, try it don't miss out!

  • I personally have made these quite a few times over the years, sometimes I use ground beef, sometimes I make ground sausage. Easy to make in advance and just reheat if needed. A Scotch egg is a great high protein breakfast or even pre-workout snack!!

    Simple, cheap and VERY filling

  • 1lb Lean Ground Beef

  • 4 Eggs

  • Basil, other green seasonings

  • Salt and pepper for taste

  • Coconut oil for frying

  • Almond meal & egg for coating (optional)

  • For the scotch eggs:
    Preheat oven to 350F & heat coconut oil in frying
    pan (enough oil to for frying).
    1. Boil eggs (hardboiled eggs can take ~
    10-12 mins boiling) – shell and set aside.
    2. Mix minced beef with
    seasonings of choice (I used salt, pepper, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and
    finely ground basil).
    3. Take portions of this seasoned minced beef and
    flatten. Mold the meat onto the boiled egg so as to make a coating to to
    surround each – roll them in your hands to maintain the round & even meat
    coating on the eggs.
    **Optional (but will keep meat together better): coat
    each scotch egg with beaten egg & roll in almond flour / meal until evenly
    4. Place scotch eggs in heated coconut oil in frying pan – fry until
    golden brown.
    6. Remove from pan and place scotch eggs on baking tray and
    place in oven for ~ 10 – 12 mins
