Although you might think that making a scotch egg from scratch is too complicated, using HECK! chicken burgers means most of the hard work is already done! These make a great picnic or lunch option for meal prep, and of course you can use a gluten-free loaf for the breadcrumbs if needed.
4 x 114g HECK! Simply Chicken burgers
4 medium eggs
300g wholegrain breadcrumbs (GF as required)
Generous grind of black pepper
1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
To boil the eggs, place in a saucepan of cold water and cover by at least an inch. Pop a lid on the pan and bring to the boil then time for 6 minutes cooking. Remove from the heat, drain and run under cold water for a few minutes to stop the eggs cooking.
Peel off the egg shells and pat dry with some kitchen towel. Wrap the egg in a single chicken burger using both hands to roll it into an even sphere. Set to one side until you have all 4 eggs ready to go.
In a large shallow bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, black pepper and thyme. Now roll the eggs in the breadcrumbs until completely covered. Pop onto a baking tray and into the oven at 170° for 18-20 mins, when the scotch eggs are golden brown.
