Weekend Recipe - Scotch Eggs

The scotch egg is one of my favourite picnic foods and something I thought I would no longer be able to eat on a 'diet' but there is a way to make them 'Slimming World' friendly!

Simply hard boil 5 eggs - I always put mine in cold water, bring to the boil, then simmer for 6 minutes. I let mine cool then added the 'meat', which in my case was defrosted Linda McCartney vegetarian red onion and rosemary sausages. These are 'free' on the SW programme - you could of course use any sausage meat. I simply moulded the 'meat' around the egg in my hand until it was completely covered. I then sprayed them with Frylight One Calorie Spray and cooked them for 20 minutes at 200c, turning once halfway. You can add breadcrumbs but these would be unnecessary 'syns' on the SW programme.

I must say they were delicious and tasted just like the real thing, even nicer!

I took mine into group on Friday morning for our Free Food February taster and I came home with an empty box - good job I saved one for me at home. They really are very easy to make - try them x
