Paula’s Scotch Eggs

IMG_8932

These handy little protein bombs are a great clean snack or good as a side for any meal. They’re really filling, cheap, and easy-peasy to make. I’ve included the herbs that I normally use, but add any fresh or dried herbs depending on your own taste. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 5 large eggs
  • 400g pork mince
  • 5 back rashers (unsmoked)
  • 2 tsp sage
  • 2 tsp parsley
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • Plenty of salt and black pepper

**The amount of herbs added is approximate here, I just throw it in!

 Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C
  2. Hard boil your eggs. I usually add the eggs to a pan, pour boiling water over them, bring to the boil again and allow to simmer for a few minutes, allow to cool before peeling (cold water speeds up the process).
  3. Combine the mince and all the herbs – use a fork to mash the mince so it’s easier to handle.
  4. Take a ball of mince in the palm of your hand and flatten it out, add the egg and wrap the mince around, until the egg is completely covered.
  5. Wrap a piece of bacon around the egg and place on a baking dish.
  6. Bake in the oven for approximately 40 mins or until the bacon looks crispy.
  7. Allow to cool, cut open and enjoy!

Tip: depending how much mince you use for each one, you could do this with more or less eggs.

Note from Primalpiggy: I have tasted these Gems and they’re so delicious, it’s a great recipe from Paula and you have to be quick when they’re brought to the gym as they last about 10 seconds 🙂
