Ingredients

  • 3 large Italian sausages you can use mild or spicy
  • 4 large eggs
  • Pinch of cayenne

Breading

Oil to fry. I used coconut oil.

    Instructions

    • Place your 4 eggs in a small sauce pan, cover with warm water and boil for 6 minutes for runny eggs, 8 minutes for molten and 10 minutes for hard boiled. Remove from heat and cover with cold water to stop the cooking process. Once cool enough, peel your eggs and place them on a clean paper towel.
    • Remove the casing of your sausages and place in a mixing bowl. Add a pinch of cayenne and mix. Divide your sausage mix into 4. Get your hands wet with a little bit of water and flatten 1 portion of your sausage on the palm of your hand. Place one cooked egg on top of the flat sausage and wrap your sausage around the egg to completely seal. Repeat until for the other eggs.
    • In a lare pot, or fryer, heat up your frying oil on medium-high. 
    • Place your coconut flour in a wide bowl and psyllium husk in another bowl. Take one scotch egg, roll in the coconut flour first, then in egg wash and finally in psyllium husk. Repeat this step until all your eggs are breaded. Fry your eggs for 5-6 minutes. Remove from the fryer and place on a cooling rack. Let them rest for 5 minutes before digging in. 
    • Enjoy!
