HEALTHY SCOTCH EGG TUTORIAL | TheDIYLady

Hello lovely people.
Hope you are having a wonderful day so far?
As most of you know, I started a series called #DIYMonday over on my youtube channel (are you subscribed?).
This week, I shared an easy plus healthy tutorial on how I make scotch-egg.

According to wikipedia, A Scotch egg consists of a hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat, coated in bread crumbs and baked or deep-fried.


I love scotch egg so very much and had to learn how to make it! In order for this to be healthy, I use turkey sausage, grounded granola bars and then I also baked it instead of deep frying it.

What you need:
  1. Sausage (I used turkey sausage as an healthier alternative)
  2. You choice of seasoning for the sausage (I love cayenne pepper and creole seasoning).  
  3. Ground cinnamon
  4. Grounded Granola bar (substitute for bread crumbs or grounded graham crackers)
  5. Flour
  6. Boiled eggs
  7. Cracked egg
As you can see, not much is needed to prepare this yummy snack that could also be a meal depending on how much of it you choose to eat. *wink*

WATCH VIDEO BELOW FOR STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL. 


STEPS:

  1. Boil desired amount of eggs.
  2. Remove eggs and put into cold water then peel. Set aside. 
  3. Blend/Mash granola bars(remember you can substitute for bread crumbs or graham crackers)
  4. Add ground cinnamon to granola bar blend
  5. Remove sausage and add seasoning of choice. Then work seasoning into sausage. Set aside.
  6. Break raw egg in a separate bowl then whisk.
  7. Prepare a baking pan with foil. 
  8. Preheat Oven to 375 degrees 
  9. Dampen palms with water or wear cooking gloves
  10. Roll each egg in flour. 
  11. Scoop enough sausage mixture into your palms - Be generous, you need enough to cover the egg. 
  12. Put one egg in the middle of your sausage and cover egg with sausage (you may want to watch the video above at this point if you're confused). 
  13. Roll sausage covered egg in beaten/whisked egg.
  14. Roll the result from step 12 in grounded granola bar mix
  15. Arrange on a baking pan 
  16. Bake for 20 minutes
  17. Serve whole or cut in slices

Below is what the finished product should look like before you transfer to your oven.

Below is what your finished product should look like once you've baked it for about 20 minutes. If you look at the lower right of this photo, you'll see the result of not using enough sausage mix to cover your egg. LOL


Here's what you should have after cutting each one in halves.

Happy eating!



Remember, you can adjust this recipe as you feel. I honestly decided to go the healthy route with this because it makes me feel less guilty when I eat more  than one. LOL... Scotch eggs are lovely as a side dish, breakfast or whatever you choose them for. They are great for brunch or finger food at bridal/baby showers as well.

Please let me know if you try this recipe and also share with me if you love scotch eggs as much as I do.
Thanks for visiting,
Till Later, God Bless.
