  • 1 pound (480 g) uncooked bulk sausages
  • 6 hard- -boiled eggs, shelled
  • 1-2 raw eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup almond flour (coconut flour, or preferred coating)


Step 1

Divide the sausages into 6 equal parts. Using a spoon, flatten each sausage portion into a thin patty, large enough to wrap around a hard-boiled egg.

Step 2

Lay shelled egg in the center, then wrap flattened sausage around the whole egg. Repeat for all eggs.

Step 3

Dip the sausage-wrapped eggs in the beaten eggs, then in the almond flour. Spray coated eggs with oil spray.

Step 4

Preheat your air fryer to 400 F (200 C) for minutes. Place coated eggs in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Fry at 400 F (200 C) for 12-15 minutes, turning once halfway through. Serve hot.
