Recipe by  

Traditional Scotch Eggs are a delight at any time but, for those watching their weight, they pose a big problem since they are either deep-fried or at least cooked in fat. So here's an alternative that is healthier with very little loss of taste or texture. These Oven Baked Scotch Eggs count for only 8 WeightWatchers ProPoints each, so very 'affordable' with a light salad if you are on a diet.

How to Cook Oven Baked Scotch Eggs

  1. Hard boil FOUR of the eggs, cool them in cold water and shell them.
  2. Separate the yolk from the white of the remaining egg and lightly beat the egg white. Add the parsley, mixed herbs and sausage meat and mix together. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper, then divide into four equal portions. Use your hands to pat each portion into a flat disc. Place a hard-boiled egg on each disc and wrap the meat around the egg, ensuring a good seal. Roll them in fresh breadcrumbs then chill them for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Bake on a baking sheet in a preheated moderately hot oven (Mk 5 - 375ºF - 190ºC) for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Cool, then serve with a side salad.

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
Hard-boiled eggs can be stored (with the shells still on) in a refrigerator for 4 or 5 days (but do not try to freeze them). If, for any reason, your boiled eggs get mixed up with your fresh eggs, you can tell the difference using the 'Meester Graham Spin Test'! Place the egg on a flat surface and spin it. If is spins and slows down evenly, it is hard-boiled. If it spins and slows down erratically, it has not been cooked.

Reviews of Oven Baked Scotch Eggs

Rating 4 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again January 29 2015
I LOVE Scotch Eggs but I have to lose weight and thought I wouldn't be able to eat them again. Then I saw this and checked it through Weightwatchers and you're right, it's just 8 points! Brilliant, now I can have a Scotch egg occasionally. The tast is great, there's no loss of flavour at all and my family didn't even notice the difference!!
