SCOTCH EGGS! (Gluten Free, Low Carb)

I found this recipe a couple places, both very similar to each other.  I ended up adapting from this one here. I changed it a little though, as I usually do.  

These were better than expected. Hubs really liked them.  And they are quite filling.  A burst of breakfast flavor.  mmm.  I brought one for lunch today. lol.  Im excited about it.

Serves: 6
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
  • 6 pre hard boiled eggs ( cooled, peeled, and dry)
  • 1 lb lean ground breakfast sausage
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 Tbsp gluten free Worcestershire sauce ( can be omitted)
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ Tbsp Cajun seasoning mix
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese (I used Monterrey Jack and a little Mexican blend)
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning (I used Johnny Seasoning Salt instead)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
*if you dont care about carbs, you can throw in 1/4 - 1/2 cup panko or regular bread crumbs (like progresso or similar)

  1. Preheat oil in deep fryer to 365.
  2. Put sausage in a bowl add: Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, poultry seasoning, Cajun seasoning, and mozzarella cheese.
  3. Mix it all together.
  4. Then in a separate bowl beat an egg.
  5. In another bowl mix: Parmesan cheese (and bread crumbs if you're using them), salt and pepper.
  6. Now separate your meat mixture into 6 patties.
  7. Place your cooled, peeled, and dry hard boiled egg on a meat mixture patty, and roll in hands around your egg until covered and ball shaped.  (this was a little difficult but it eventually comes together)
  8. Dip and roll in egg wash mixture, Then roll in Parmesan mixture till covered.
  9. Repeat with other eggs.
  10. Deep fry a couple at a time for 5 minutes. 
  11. Serve with favorite dipping sauce, hot sauce or Mustard.
If you don't want to deep fry you can bake at 400 for 30 minutes.

You can also pan fry in oil turning ever 2 or 3 minutes until golden brown.
