Baked Scotch Eggs
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 5
  • Five eggs
  • Five links of an uncooked, mild pork sausage, like bratwurst (about 1 lb.)
  • ¾ cup grated parmesan cheese (optional)
  1. Hard boil the eggs, and peel them.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. Remove the meat from the sausage casing, separate each link into 2 pieces, one of which is a little larger than the other. Flatten both pieces.
  4. Holding the larger patty in the palm of your hand, place a hard boiled egg in the center of the patty, and gently cup the meat around the egg. Place the other patty over the open seam, and pinch the seams of the meat together, covering the egg entirely. Use your hands to shape the egg into a roughly spherical shape.
  5. Roll the Sausage egg ball in parmesan, if using, and place on a baking sheet lined with foil. Repeat for the remaining eggs. You may be able to get six eggs out of a pound of sausage, depending on how deftly, you flatten the meat and cover the egg.
  6. Bake the eggs for 25 minutes, until browned. Cool, and store in the refrigerator.
If you are strict paleo, the parmesan can be omitted.
