✅Scotch Eggs & Armadillo Eggs
Scotch Egg = 0g carbs
Armadillo Egg = 2g carbs
6 medium eggs, soft boiled (you can use hard boiled if you prefer)
¾ – 1 lbs of hot sausage
1 tbsp butter, lard or bacon grease (optional)
➡Armadillo Egg Ingredients
6 Jalapeno peppers, stems removed and seeds removed
Cream cheese, enough to stuff peppers
6 slices of bacon, thin cut
¾ lbs. of hot sausage
Preheat oven to 400.
If making Armadillo eggs, stuff cream cheese inside of each jalapeno pepper. Fill the entire pepper cavity.
Evenly divide the sausage and form into patties approximately ¼” thick and large enough to enclose an egg or stuffed jalapeno.
Place an egg/pepper in the center of the disk and cup your hand to wrap the meat around an egg/pepper. Gently use your fingers to make sure there are no cracks and that the seam will not open during cooking. The egg/pepper should be completely hidden. Set aside and repeat with the other eggs/peppers.
➡For the Armadillo Eggs:
Wrap each one with bacon, place on a rimmed baking sheet and cook in the oven for 30 minutes, rotating half way through.
➡For the Scotch Eggs:
Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add in the Scotch eggs, 2-3 at a time, and cook for 6-8 minutes. Rotate the eggs every minute in the skillet to brown each side. Place Scotch eggs on rimmed baking sheet and repeat with remaining eggs. Place on a rimmed baking sheet cook an additional 6-8 minutes in the oven, enough time for the sausage to cook through.
Remove from oven and enjoy with hot sauce, pickles or mayo.
