The perfect “picnic” food or on-the-go snack, Scotch eggs can be low-carb and weight-loss friendly by eliminating bread crumbs and baking them, instead of frying. Throw one of these in your lunch bag for an easy work day snack, or serve them at a party as an appetizer.
Blend meat and spices in a food processor or by hand until fully incorporated. Divide into 6 3-ounce portions.
Lay out a large piece of plastic wrap on your work surface, and place one portion of meat in the middle. Flatten the meat into a circle, about ¼-inch thick.
Place one egg in the center, then lift the whole thing up using the plastic wrap, and shape the meat around the egg. If you need to, use your bare hands to gently finish molding the meat into a ball.
Use a non-stick spray to spritz 6 cups of a muffin tin, and place the eggs in the tin. Bake at 375 F for 15-20 minutes, then remove and let sit for 5 minutes to cool.
