Scotch Eggs

Scotch Eggs

Ingredients
3 sausages, removed from casing
1 tsp paprika
1 pinch sea salt
1 tsp sage
1 pinch black pepper
1 tbsp ground almonds or almond meal
1/3 cup mixed seeds
4 eggs
1 egg, whisked in a bowl
1/4 cup ghee
2 handfuls salad greens

Directions
Turn oven on to 350F. Place 4 large eggs in to boiling water for 6 minutes (medium eggs: 5 minutes, small eggs: 4 minutes). Take off heat and place in to ice-cold water while you carry on with the rest of the preparations. In to a blender place the almond meal, pinch of salt and mixed seeds, blend until coarse and crumbly, place aside. In to the blender place all sausage meat (make sure to de-skin beforehand), spices, salt and pepper, blend until fully combined and sticky. Peel the cold eggs, gently (as they will still be soft-boiled). Now break sausage mixture in to 4 balls. Using the palm of your hand create a “cup”, flat patty shape. Place one egg into the middle and work the sausage mixture around it making sure to fully seal all the sides. Now dip the ball in to the egg mix (1 whisked egg) and fully cover smoothing all the sides (this is how your meat and egg will stay bound)
Roll the ball straight in to the mixed seeds / almond mixture. In to a shallow frying pan over high heat heat up about 1/4 cup ghee and place scotch egg in to the oil. Brown each side for around 1-2 minutes until golden brown, then place on to a baking sheet and bake for 5 – 6 minutes. Serve over a bed of fresh greens.
