Imagine my joy when I found out that with this change in eating, I would get to eat scotch eggs without guilt! I haven’t made these things since I was in secondary school. I think the last time I had a really good one was in Bath, England. That was in the 90s!
Here’s how I made mine, inspired by Melicious:
1lb pork sausage, pasture raised
5 hard boiled eggs
coconut flour, 2 tbsp for coating eggs before wrapping meat around it
almond meal, for breading
coconut oil, for deep-frying
1. Boil eggs – put eggs from refrigerator to water, bring to a boil, turn off heat. Cover and wait 10 minutes, then rinse with cold water and peel. They always turn out perfect like this.
2. Dry eggs, coat in coconut flour. Just enough to keep the outside of eggs dry.
3. Wrap sausage meat around each egg. This takes a little practice but you will get it right soon enough. I made a disc of sausage meat, placed the egg in the middle and then proceed to mold meat around egg.
4. Coat with almond meal and deep fry. I use our trusty Fry Daddy. It keeps the temperature of the oil just right that nothing comes out too oily.
These are perfect eaten cold with some horseradish mustard. Pared with a nice salad or carrot/celery sticks.
