Low Carb Scotch Eggs
Also known as the best quick breakfast ever. It's really easy to do. Ingredients 5-6 Hardboiled Eggs (Go here for a fool proof egg timer for your hardboiled egg. Mike always come out just right, though you do have to look at the colors from time to time. 1 package of Jimmy Dean's sausage, we liked the hot kind (Thawed if it was frozen) 1/4 c parmesan cheese Thyme, salt and pepper Optional: Worcester sauce (I put it all over my egg when it was done because it's one of my go to condiments. Glass casserole dish Set the oven to 375 While the oven is warming peel your eggs (if you haven't). Crack open your Jimmy Dean sausage, take out a handful of sausage goop and flatten it in your palms, until you have a circle about 4 inches wide, 1/3 inch thick. Wrap this around the egg, rolling it around in your hand like you would dough, until it covers the entire surface. Repeat with the rest of the eggs. Shake thyme, salt and pepper and parmesan cheese over your eggs, rolling them around in the excess to cover them. Pop them all in your dish (foil lined if you want to keep cleanup simple) and toss into your warmed oven. Depending on the size of you eggs they will be done anywhere between 30-35 minutes. (If you poke them they shouldn't be red in the middle anymore.) Pair it with whatever other items you want, but 1 of these was enough for each of us for breakfast. Bon apetit!
