Scotch Egg Recipe - Ingredients  (serves 6)
Paleo Recipe Collection

Here are all the ingredients for this healthy living recipe. It's a firm favourite gluten free recipe in our family and I have to make lots of them as they are brilliant for packed lunches as kid friendly recipes to try.

  • 250g minced/ground pork
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp fresh chives chopped (a tsp of dried would be fine too)
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan pink salt (or sea salt, whatever your preference)
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 6 hard boiled eggs, chilled
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds 
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds

Scotch Egg Recipe - Method
Paleo Recipe Collection

  1. Preheat your oven to its highest setting.
  2. Hard boil 6 eggs. Leave to go cold and then shell them.
  3. Put the pumpkin, sunflower and flax seeds into a food processor and grind until they become a relatively fine powder.
  4. Pour half of the seed mixture onto a plate.
  5. Crack one of the fresh eggs into a bowl and beat.
  6. Put the ground pork into a bowl, add the salt, pepper, paprika and chives and mix thoroughly.
  7. Break the other fresh egg into the pork mixture and mix - the egg will help the meat bind together.
  8. Divide the meat mixture into 6 equal pieces.
  9. Take 1 portion of pork, shape into a rough ball then flatten on your hand. (This is a messy job!)
  10. Put 1 of your hard boiled eggs onto the pork patty and gently shape the meat around the egg, sealing any holes by pressing the meat together.
  11. Roll your meat covered egg in the seed mixture. Place on a baking sheet covered in baking parchment. Repeat for the rest of the eggs.
  12. Spread the remainder of the seed mixture onto the plate.
  13. Dip a scotch egg into the beaten egg mixture then roll in the seeds once more.  
  14. Place on the baking sheet.
  15. Repeat for each egg.
  16. Place the baking tray into the oven and set the timer for 10 minutes.
  17. After 10 minutes reduce the oven temperature to 350°F (180°C or Gas Mark 4) and cook for a further 30 minutes.
  18. Serve.

What Is Paleo?

Paleo is a lifestyle which is based around how our ancestors lived thousands of years ago. It takes the best of the past and mixes it into our modern day lives to bring us health, happiness and vitality.

It is not centred purely around diet, but this is the area that most people want to know most about, as the diet can seem so far removed from what we have become used to in recent generations.

In basic terms there are foodstuffs that are avoided:

  • Grains
  • Sugar
  • Dairy
  • Legumes/Pulses

which may seem restrictive, but still leaves all of these goodness packed delights to enjoy:

  • Vegetables
  • fruit
  • meat
  • eggs
  • nuts and seeds

Have a look at our page "What Is Paleo?" for a bit more in depth information.
