The history of scotch eggs is full of twists and turns with many variations that have been tried over the years. Some people believe that they originated from China, where they were called โ€œFen Guiโ€ which means fried breaded meatballs.

Ingredients

  • 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)

Method

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.
