Scotch Eggs are well known in the UK as a picnic food. We often eat these delicious delicacies with an outdoor lunch on a warm summers day. In recent years, I have noticed scotch eggs appearing on menu’s in pubs and restaurants. I have often wondered what this treat would be like for a dinner. So I set to work trying to make Scotch Eggs for our dinner.
- Small saucepan
- Large bowl
- Small bowl
- Eggs x 4
- Salt x 1 pinch
- Cold Water x 1 large bowl
- Gluten free sausages x 8
- Flax seed x 150g
- Preheat the oven to 180°C and put a baking tray in.
- Put a small saucepan of water on a high heat.
- Bring to the boil and add a pinch of salt.
- Using the spoon carefully place the eggs into the boiling water.
- Boil for exactly 5 minutes.
- While the eggs are boiling prepare the large bowl with the cold water.
- Once the eggs have boiled, remove from the heat.
- Pour the hot water away and with the spoon transfer to the bowl of cold water.
- Leave in the cold water for a minute.
- Now take the eggs out of the water and remove the shell.
- Set the eggs aside once all the shells are removed.
- Pour the flax seed into the small bowl.
- Cut the skins from the sausages using the scissors.
- Flatten the sausages using your hands.
- Put an egg in the middle of one sausage and wrap the it around the outside.
- Cover the top of the egg with the other sausage.

- Repeat this process for the other three.
- Remove the baking tray from the oven and put the scotch eggs in.
- Place the tray in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes or as per the packet instructions on the sausages.
- When golden brown and crispy, remove the scotch eggs from the oven.
- The serve and enjoy.
Gluten Free Scotch Eggs were a big hit with my husband. He was very impressed with this choice for dinner and really enjoyed his meal. I served this dish with my homemade baked beans which made the meal even tastier. These yummy scotch eggs made a great dinner but they could be taken on a picnic or they can even become part of a lunch box too. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy.
