My sister sent me a recipe for Whole30 Scotch Eggs and said they were very tasty. Oh man was she right!! The first time I followed the recipe she sent pretty closely and then the next few times I had to make them my own. Traditionally Scotch Eggs are a boiled egg wrapped in meat rolled in bread crumbs and then deep fried. While that all sound very very delicious it is nowhere near Whole30 compliant or even close to clean. So I decided to make my own sausage, which is actually way easier than you would think and to omit the bread crumbs and bake instead of deep fry. These are great for breakfast or as a pre-workout meal. I also top mine with Frank’s Red Hot.
What you will need:
6 Peeled Soft Boiled Eggs
1 Bell Pepper- I used 1/2 a yellow and 1/2 a red
2-3 Handfuls of Kale or Spinach
2 Pounds Sugar Free Sausage — Tough to find? Make your own see below it will taste way better anyway
2 pounds Ground Pork- or any other ground meat you want
1 Tbsp ground Fennel
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
1/2 Tbsp Chili Powder – Or more if you really like it spicy
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 tsp Sea Salt
1/1 tsp Cinnamon
How to do it:
Boil your eggs for roughly 4 mins and then rinse and allow to cool while preparing the sausage.
Mince the Vegetables, I prefer to do this in the food processor because its quick and there is no crying over the onions.
Mix your Meat, Vegetables and Spices.
Wrap the eggs- Make a thin patty about the size of your hand, place the egg in the middle and work the meat around the egg until the whole egg is covered in meat. I always have some sausage left over, make it into patties or just keep save it in a tupperware for use later on. It is great with scrambled eggs or Sweet Potato Hash.
Bake in oven at 350 for 20 mins.
I made this short video to show you how to make these delicious little things.
