Easy to make low carb Scotch eggs recipe.  

Posted by: reflective moments

I have been experimenting with different versions of Scotch eggs and settled on this low carb version.....

Scotch eggs are traditionally deep fried with bread crumbs but neither is necessary and makes for an easy low carb conversion.

  • 4 hard boiled eggs (place eggs in cold water and bring to the boil.. let boil for no more than 12min)
  • Sausage or pork mince
  • spices as desired  
  • (I have diced an onion finely and mixed it into the mince or just used some ground black pepper)
  • grated/shredded cheese (optional)
Boil and remove the shells from 4 eggs.  On a sheet of wax paper, spread out about 1/4 of the sausage mince and pat out thinly.  Sprinkle some grated cheese on top of the sausage and place one hardboiled egg in the center.  Carefully wrap the sausage "blanket" around the egg keeping all the cheese on the inside.  Make sure to pinch the sausage together where the ends meat to help keep the cheese inside.  Repeat for the other three eggs.  You can fry them or partially fry them (just sear the outside) and complete the cooking by baking them in the oven at 180c/300 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.  The sausage layer should be fairly thin so it won't take very long to cook either way you choose.

There are many, many versions of Scotch Eggs but these cheesy low carb one's are my preference,

Sounds yummy Bren. Looks delicious too. I've read about a veggie version somewhere but I can never remember what it is! Good to have something low-carb because the one disadvantage to them is that they can be too greasy and overly filling, so yours sounds a perfect adaptation.

I've never had Scotch eggs, but they look delightful. I think I'll give your recipe a try.

I adore Scotch Eggs, so thank you for posting this interesting recipe.

Pleased to say everyone loved them. I actually mixed grated cheese through the sausage mince and I think it was nicer ...
