What are Scotch Eggs?

So what is a Scotch Egg, exactly? A Scotch Egg is an egg that has been hard-boiled, encased in sausage meat, rolled in some form of breading, and then baked or fried.

I don’t like to fry stuff at home. I can’t deal with all that leftover oil, the smell of the hot oil, and of course, I”m a klutz so there’s the danger of hot oil around me.

How To Make Scotch Eggs Keto

In the UK, Scotch Eggs are usually eaten covered with flour and egg wash and then coated with breadcrumbs. I wanted to make these Keto Scotch Eggs low carb, gluten-free while reducing the number of ingredients needed.

So I used parmesan cheese to coat the sausage and got a lovely, crunchy crust with very little effort.

What Does A Scotch Egg Taste Like?

Scotch Eggs taste like breakfast all in one bite. They are savory, comforting, and absolutely delicious.

It’s perfectly crispy on the outside while being deliciously creamy on the inside.

Keto Scotch Eggs Recipe Variations

Some people like to keep the eggs runny. I don’t do so well with runny eggs, but if you prefer those, vastly underboil the eggs since they will cook more as they air fry.

Typically you’d eat these Air Fried Scotch Eggs with mustard, but they’re so flavorful, I’m not sure they need much of anything.

  • For the eggs: In a large bowl combine sausage, mustard, chives, parsley, nutmeg, salt, and black pepper. Gently mix until everything is well combined. Shape mixture into four equal-size patties.

  • Please each egg on a sausage patty and shape sausage around egg. Dip each in shredded Parmesan cheese to cover completely, pressing lightly to adhere. Make sure the cheese shreds are well-pressed into the meat, so that they do not fly around in the air fryer.

  • Arrange eggs in air fryer basket. Spray lightly with nonstick vegetable oil. Set fryer to 400°F for 15 minutes. Halfway through cook time, turn eggs and spray with vegetable oil.

  • Serve with coarse-ground mustard.
