Scotch Eggs

So.  Scotch eggs.  Hard boiled eggs wrapped in sausage.  Mmmmm.  Seriously?  I read about them a couple places this week, my favorites being F.E.D. and Johnny Roadtrip.  I really wanted to do a Pork x 3 egg with Canadian bacon, thick country bacon and sausage.  Sadly, my Canadian bacon was too thick and wouldn't wrap around the egg well enough.  I will defintately be re-trying this recipe with the Candian bacon.

These were really super easy.  I wanted to add an extra Paleo-esque aspect by rolling them in the ground almonds and frying them in the bacon grease before throwing them in the oven.  I am totally a breakfast person and I cannot imagine a more perfect breakfast unless I figured out how to add butter to this.

  1. I did these about a week and half ago, but instead of coating them with anything, I just threw them on my grill.
