  • 6 boiled eggs
  • 500 g ground/mince pork or beef, or lamb
  • 2 tsp herbs of choice optional
  • 1 tsp onion flakes to garnish (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Boil the eggs as instructed above.
  • Mix the ground meat with the herbs, spices and salt.
  • Flatten a small handful as shown in the video. Place a boiled egg on top and start to mold the meat around the eggs. Add more meat if required to ensure the boiled egg is completely covered.
  • Press firmly to help the meat adhere to the egg.
  • Place on a lined baking tray and brush Scotch egg with oil and sprinkle onion flakes (optional).
  • Bake at 180C/350F for 15-20 minutes, or until golden on all sides. You may wish to turn the keto paleo Scotch eggs once whilst cooking to make sure they are golden all over.
