Great Scotch! Body SymmetryMD 's Paleo Scotch Eggs

Scotch eggs are a versatile snack that you can take with you just about anywhere. These protein-packed delights were invented by a department store in London in 1738 (which is almost like Paleo times, right?!). 

Traditional Scotch eggs are usually coated in breading and are sometimes deep fried, but we at Body SymmetryMD wanted to make a healthier version that's just as delicious as the original! 

These Paleo Scotch Eggs are simply eggs, meat and a few herbs. What could be more uncomplicated?

Paleo Scotch Eggs
- 6 eggs
- 1 lb. ground turkey
- 2 teaspoon sage
- 2 teaspoon rosemary
- 2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 teaspoon onion powder
- salt & pepper
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil

1. Boil the eggs for 4 minutes. Drain the saucepan of hot water, then immediately cover the eggs in cold water so they will be cool enough to be peeled.
2. Peel the eggs and pat dry with a paper towel (this will allow the turkey mixture to stick to the egg easier).
3. Mix the ground turkey with the sage, rosemary, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
4. Get a small handful of the turkey mixture and flatten it in your hand, almost like making a very thin hamburger patty.
5. Place the egg onto the turkey mixture and slowly work the meat around the egg, massaging to completely cover the egg.
6. Grease a baking pan with the coconut oil. Place all of the Paleo Scotch Eggs on the pan, and cook for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
7. Serve and enjoy eating Paleo -friendly (makes 6 Scotch eggs)!
