Paleo Scotch Eggs

I just love scotch eggs and its quite upsetting to me that I no longer eat them and then recently I decided to try and make a paleo version. You will be pleased to know that my attempts were successful and passed the ‘Dad Test’ i.e. my Dad happily scoffed one down!


4 x boiled eggs
400g Sausages or Sausage meat (breadcrumb free) (about 6 sausages)
1 x beaten egg
1 cup (80g) almond flour
1 cup  (80g) coconut flour
1 tablespoon garlic powder
Black pepper to taste


  1. Boil your eggs first and peel them ready to use.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  3. If you are using sausages, as opposed to sausage meat, then cut the skins and squeeze out the sausage meat. Split the meat into four equal lumps.
  4. Take each sausage ball out of the bag and coat in the beaten egg with a pastry brush (or by dunking it) and roll it in the flour mixture. Once it has a good coating of the mixture place it in a baking tray.
  5. Once all the scotch eggs are made, put in the oven for about 30 minutes or until they are golden brown and look cooked.

Enjoy hot or cold!

Note: I did have quite a lot of the flour left over so I used it in another recipe but you could just scale down the measurements or make more scotch eggs!

Ready to go in the oven
