Baked and gluten free Scotch eggs

  • Serves: 6
  • Prep: 10mins
  • Cook: 35mins


  • 4 slices gluten free bread
  • 6 gluten free sausages, any flavour
  • 7 British Lion eggs
  • Fresh parsley
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of lemon pepper


  1. Boil six of the eggs for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and plunge the eggs into iced water to stop them cooking. Once cooled enough to handle, peel the eggs and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  3. Snip one end from each sausage and squeeze the contents of the sausage onto a plate. Take care to keep the sausages separate as one sausage will be enough to cover one egg. You could use skinless sausages, but you may struggle to find skinless gluten free sausages.
  4. Place an egg in the middle of the sausage meat and shape around the egg, cupping your hands to form a sphere. You should be able to cover 90% if not all of the egg in the sausage meat.
  5. Arrange the sausage-wrapped eggs on the baking tray so that they aren't touching. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Beat the remaining egg in a small bowl and toast the slices of bread. Once the bread is toasted, tear it into manageable sized chunks and put it in a food processor along with some fresh parsley, salt and lemon pepper. Blitz the bread until the breadcrumbs are as coarse or fine as you like. 
  7. Roll the sausage-wrapped eggs in the beaten egg then in the breadcrumbs and return to the baking tray. Cook for an additional 12 to 15 minutes until the sausage is cooked through and the breadcrumbs are golden.
  8. Serve with a salad, fruit and other picnic accompaniments.

Using leftovers to create a delicious Monday meal. What can you find in your kitchen tonight? #foodinspo #mondaymeals #leftovers #dinner #eggsThese spicy potato Scotch eggs are a great vegetarian addition to any lunchbox or weekend meal with family/friends. Serve with mango chutney and salad and you’re ready to go! #lunchboxideas #britishlioneggs #britisheggweek #scotcheggs #letsgetcrackingHere are some of our top tips for avoiding that hangry feeling. For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
