Scotch Eggs

4 servings

The Scots are famous for deep frying pretty much anything. Deep fried Mars bar anyone? They have them in Scotland. This recipe is a healthier version than the traditional deep fried Scottish recipe.

To make breakfast easier you can hard boil the eggs the night before or use leftover Easter eggs. You can even make them completely, refrigerate them and serve cold, room temp or reheated the next day.

 

Ingredients

1 pound breakfast sausage, divided into 4 equal portions
5 large eggs
¼ cup soy flour (or any other non-wheat flour)
1 cup finely crushed pork rinds

Instructions

Bring a small pan with 4 cups of water to a full boil. Carefully place 4 of the eggs in the boiling water. Place a lid on the pot. Turn the heat off but leave them on the burner. Set a timer for 20 minutes and then remove from burner and pour off the hot water. Run cold water into the pan and when the eggs have cooled enough to touch them, peel them.

Place the flour on a plate.

Place the fifth egg in a pie plate and lightly beat.

Place the pork rinds in another pie plate.

Roll the eggs in the flour to coat. Wrap each egg with a portion of the sausage. Dip sausage wrapped egg in the beaten egg and then coat thoroughly with the pork rind crumbs patting lightly so they adhere well.

Place coated eggs in a lightly oiled baking dish and chill for one hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake eggs until golden brown, about 30 minutes.

Paleo Version

Skip the pork rinds, flour and fifth egg. Just wrap the sausage around the hard-boiled egg and go from there.

About admin

I've always abhorred the idea that the only way to lose weight is to starve yourself, eat foods that are foreign to you, or gulp down special weight loss potions. I've proved that it is not only possible, but it's easy and fun to lose weight The UnDiet way. The UnDiet is extremely flexible, allowing you to make deviations based on your personal taste, the choices confronting you at any given time, your mood, your cooking skills and the time you have available. A gourmet cook can be happy with The UnDiet as well as those who don't know or care what saute means. You can eat out at restaurants and parties and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat olive oil, butter, cream, meat, mayonnaise and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat until you're full and still lose weight, once you've mastered the basic principles of The UnDiet. So dig in to this blog, subscribe to the newsletter for lots of extras not published on the blog and get ready for the Kindle book coming soon.

We want to hear from you :)
