You guys know it and I know it….I’m a food nerd. I love thinking up new ideas and trying to be creative in my kitchen. So you can imagine my dismay when I shared what I thought was an original recipe with the other dietitians here and discovered it was none other than just a healthy version of Scotch Eggs! What. A. Bummer.
Even though it isn’t original, I guess a modified version of an old, fried dish is just as beneficial. This recipe was not some epiphany, it was purely an accident. The result of batch cooking a few different things at once.
If you care to read, this is the chain of events that transpired: after I put eggs on to boil for our breakfast meals the rest of the week, I set out to make my sausage balls for a few different lunches and freezing.
Then I realized my mistake…I put all of the eggs in the water to boil and did not leave any as the binder for the sausage balls. GAH! So I had this sausage mixed up and ready, but no eggs. After a little huffing and puffing, refusing to go to the grocery store just for eggs, and one little idea…the version of Healthy Scotch Eggs was made.
I hope you enjoy this accident for breakfast as much as I did! ~Lauren
