Scotch eggs sure seem like they would take a lot of work, but for me I make 4 at a time so that I have a quick grab and go breakfast. I used to make a lot more than that.
My boys always loved when I made scotch eggs. There is something magical about biting into a sausage ball and finding a hard cooked egg inside, especially for a child.
How Scotch Eggs Fit Into My Trim Healthy Mama Journey
I’ve always had to fight with myself about making sure that I actually eat breakfast. I know that’s such a horrible habit to have to break. Personally, it is still a “mental” issue that I have to battle. Scotch eggs help in that they are a quick ready to go protein source. * gentle reminder* Remember those greens.
I can steam or saute some spinach crack open a scotch egg and that’s it! If you are really on the run — grab a scotch egg and some earth milk — Done!
Scotch eggs are going to fall into the satisfying category of meals for THM.
Scotch Eggs Require No Special Ingredients
I love that these can be made without any special ingredients — if you don’t have baking blend– don’t sweat it!! Just wrap the sausage around the egg and seal it up.
I’ve made turkey sausage from this Turkey Sausage Patties recipe or you can use store bought sausage.
