Scotch Eggs

Scotch EggsLove breakfast foods but get tired of making the same scrambled eggs and sausages? Try a Scotch egg. They’re easy to make and can be served with fruit or oven potatoes for a filling and simple meal.

Never had a Scotch egg? Essentially, it’s a boiled egg wrapped in breakfast sausage and then breaded and deep fried. It’s easy to make gluten-free, and many people enjoy the eggs with mustard.

Scotch Eggs

  • 6 organic, very fresh eggs
  • 1 pound organic bulk gluten-free breakfast sausage
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/4 cup duck fat or another paleo-friendly fat
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Place four eggs in a saucepan and cover them with cold water. Place the pan on the stove and bring to a boil.
  3. As soon as the water boils, remove from heat and cover. Allow to sit off the heat for four minutes.
  4. Plunge eggs in a bowl of ice water. Refrigerate and allow to cool completely.
  5. Carefully peel eggs.
  6. Pat sausage into four thin patties.
  7. Place an egg in the center of each patty, and wrap patty around the egg, sealing carefully.
  8. In a small bowl, combine almond meal, thyme, pepper, salt, and mustard powder.
  9. Whisk two remaining eggs in a small bowl.
  10. Dip each sausage/egg ball into egg wash and then into the almond meal mixture.
  11. In a large pot, heat the duck fat over medium-high until it shimmers.
  12. Add the eggs and cook until browned on all sides, about four minutes per side.
  13. Put the eggs on the prepared baking sheet and transfer them to the preheated oven. Cook until sausage is cooked through, ten to 15 minutes more.
