Scotch Egg

Oven-Baked Scotch Bonnet EggAre you getting worn out on the same old eggs and hardboiled egg recipes? Give this MRC-friendly remake on an eclectic recipe, Scotch Bonnet Egg, a try! It dresses up your “boring old” hardboiled egg, has all the good stuff that you’ll love to eat, and it will still keep those pounds peeling off the scale! 

Traditionally, a Scotch Egg is coated in bread crumbs and deep fried in oil. We’ve lightened this recipe by replacing the bread crumbs with plan-friendly Melba toasts that have been crushed to mimic the consistency of bread crumbs. Additionally, rather than deep frying this one, we oven bake our recipe! 

With two full servings per recipe, you’ll have breakfast for two days this week, or you could also enjoy this one at lunch or dinner, if preferred. Some prefer to have their Scotch Bonnet egg with a pickle on the side. We say go for it because dill pickles are a “freebie” on your More menu! 

Ingredients

  • 6 oz. lean ground Chicken Breast or Buffalo
  • 1 tsp. Mrs. Dash “Italian” seasoning
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 hard boiled Eggs, peeled
  • 4 Melba Toast rounds, blended into a fine powder
  • 1 egg, beaten
