Low Carb Keto, Scotch Eggs, 0 net Carbs.

Updated: Apr 15, 2020

Forget Low Carb this is a NO carb classic ! From Yorkshire England this travelers food is very popular today as a picnic favorite. And while its best served hot , it makes a nice handy meal . At 397 calories per egg you can go a long way on just one . Originally only hard boiled eggs where used , but in this recipe I steam the eggs for a creamy molten centers . Served with a little sea salt and cracked pepper they are delicious . But use your imagination as to garnishes , parsley , cayenne pepper , fresh thyme . I like Sriracha sauce

Low Carb Keto Scotch Eggs.

Serves 2 or 4

Ingredients :

3 – Large Eggs.

1 – Cup pork rinds crumbed .

Ground Pork sausage of your choice . I like Neese's Country Sausage Extra Sage .

Oil for Frying “ see approved list “.

Salt and Pepper .

Cooking oil spray.

Silpat silicon baking sheet or wax paper .

Preparation :

Steam eggs as follows , 5 minutes for room temp eggs or 7 minutes for cold eggs from the fridge .

Eggs should have the whites set and the yokes creamy . ( think soft boiled )

See link for how to steam eggs .

Or you can use hard boiled eggs .

Let eggs cool to room temp , peel , rinse off and pat dry .

On a silpat or wax paper spray a spot to pat out sausage on .

Take 3 ounces +/- of sausage and pat out on paper or silpat into a rectangle long enough to wrap around the egg .

Gently wrap sausage around egg and gather the ends together , pressing the sausage so the egg uniformly covers the egg about ¼ inch depth. Set aside .

Note You may need to wet your fingers in cold water to make working out the sausage easier , keep a little bowel nearby.

Break raw egg into a bowl and along with a tablespoon of water and beat with a fork or whisk.

Put pork rind crumbs in a shallow dish , season with cracked pepper and stir to incorporate.

Coat each egg in the egg wash and then role in the pork rind crumbs coating all over , set aside .

In a home fryer or sauce pan pour about 2 inches oil or lard and heat to 350 degrees .

Gently lower the scotch eggs into the oil and fry till crispy and nicely browned 4 to 5 minutes .

Remove to a paper towel lined plate , blot off excess oil .

Alternately you can bake these in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or so till the sausage is cooked through , Put them on a rack if you have one , but if you have to use a sheet pan you will have to turn them from time to time . Still frying is best .

Slice to serve , add a little sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to yokes and parsley if you would like . Also Dijon Mustard goes well or a light curry sauce

If you like spicy food use cayenne pepper instead of black pepper or some hot sauce.

Best if eaten hot . though tis originally was a picnic food.
