We’ve made carnivore scotch eggs before but this is an easier version for everyday!
They are made in a flash, and in reality aren’t as glamorous as portrayed on the internet. Mine routinely fall apart but they are yummy none the less.
Also called “eggs in a hole” this is a fun twist on ground meat with eggs and can be eaten as is or upgraded, like with raw cheese, or additional bacon 🥓
You can use any ground meat you love- our favorite is Apsey Farms ground beef (use code HELEN10) , they also have ground chicken and pork which is corn and soy free 🍗💪🏻
To make you need:
For each piece:
4-5 ounces of meat 🥩
1 egg 🍳
Optionally: your favorite pork or beef bacon, raw cheese (I love raw sheeps feta or pecorino) 🧀
Animal fat for frying 🍳 – I love tallow or butter 🧈
Begin by heating up your favorite fat in a pan, I’m currently loving wagyu tallow 🤩
Prepare your meat, form little Patties and use your hands to make a hole in the middle; about 1.5 Inches in diameter so that the egg fits. Optionally you can even crumble some cheese into the meat dough.
Sear the meat, after about 1-2 minutes, crack an egg into the little hole and season with salt, continue to cook for 2-3 minutes. Then flip and cook another 2-3 minutes until egg sets!
I like to top this with some bacon and cheese!
