Scotch eggs slimming World stylee …. Lovely hot or cold, a great addition to your lunchbox !
6 medium eggs
400g lean pork steaks, all visible fat removed, roughly chopped
….OR use 6 Syn free pork sausages i.e. SW ones, I use Syn free pork and apple sausages (or burgers) from Joes Sausages, an online butcher. (Remove the skin from the sausages)
125g rindless lean bacon, all visible fat removed, finely chopped
1-2 tsp mild curry powder
2 tbsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
salt and freshly ground black pepper
50g dried wholemeal breadcrumbs (Syn these or HexB.. I don’t usually Syn them as there is so little on each egg)
Low calorie cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas 6.
Put four of the eggs into a pan of cold water and bring to the boil. Boil for 5-6 minutes then plunge into cold water for another 4 minutes. Carefully peel and set aside.
Place the pork meat, bacon, curry powder and dried herbs into a food processor. Season to taste and blend until fairly smooth. Transfer to a bowl and divide the mixture into four portions.
Flatten a portion of the mixture in your right hand and, with your left, take an egg and wrap the mince around it until it’s fully encased (it’s messy !). Repeat for the remaining three boiled eggs.
Spread the breadcrumbs onto a wide plate.
Beat the remaining eggs and dip each Scotch egg in the beaten egg and then roll in the breadcrumbs (the eggs, not you !)Place on a baking sheet lined with non-stick baking parchment and lightly spray with low calorie oil spray.
Place in the oven and cook for 20 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool completely on kitchen paper before packing them up in airtight containers for your picnic.
Experiment with different herbs and spices mixed in with the Sausagemeat such as paprika, chilli, mustard powder etc.
Instead of breadcrumbs, some people use smash instant mash powder to coat the eggs for a totally Syn free egg.
