Scotch Eggs

I've always been a plain Jane. While I fully appreciate and enjoy complex meals, when I cook for myself I like to keep things quick & easy! I can imagine most of you may feel the same... so I wanted to share this super simple Scotch Egg recipe!


This is a go-to meal that I make when I have some fresh ground pork and eggs from my local farmer, Wild Robbins Farm. It's a definite crowd pleaser too! Adults and kids alike love the taste and added surprise element of a hard boiled egg inside a giant meatball :)


Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. Ground Pork

  • 1/3 Cup Crushed Pork Rinds (I use Epic Pork Rinds)

  • 3 hard Boiled Eggs (you could probably do 4 if you wanted, but I prefer bulkier meatballs!)

  • 1/2 Tsp. Sea Salt

  • 1/4 Tsp. Black Pepper

  • 1 Tsp. Ground Cinnamon

  • Pinch of Nutmeg

  • Pinch of Cloves

Instructions:

  • Add eggs to a pot of cold water and bring to a boil for 2-3 minutes. Remove them from the boiling water and add directly to a bowl of ice water for 10 minutes. Once cooled, peel the shells off the eggs and set aside.

  • While the eggs are cooking, preheat oven to 350F degrees.

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine ground pork with sea salt, black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Mix well to incorporate.

  • Add 1 Cup (uncrushed) pork rinds to a food processor or into a baggy to process or crush into granules. Move crushed pork rinds to a small bowl.

  • Separate ground pork mixture into 3-4 (depending on how many eggs you've made) balls.



  • Take each pork meatball and roll it into a flat oval. Place the hardboiled egg in the center and cover gently with ground pork until no egg is exposed.



  • Roll the new meatball in ground pork rinds, coating all sides.

  • Retreat with each hardboiled egg and place finished meatballs in a glass baking dish.



  • Bake for 20 minutes, and enjoy!
