Love scotch eggs, but want to avoid the breadcrumbs? Try these tasty picnic snacks that are even week one Clean & Lean Challenge compliant.

Quantity: makes 2 x Scotch eggs


  • 2 x hard boiled eggs
  • 175g of lean beef
  • 2 x egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp of flaxseed meal
  • 1 slice of lean back bacon (remove visible fat)
  • 1 tsp of mustard
  • 1/4 tsp of smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp of coffee (optional)
  • Nutmeg, pepper, salt to taste.


1.     Put all of the ingredients into the food processor except the hard boiled eggs and coffee.

2.     Blend until it gets a paste texture. Split the mix in half. Wet your hands and then place the mix on one hand making a hole for the egg and then spreading the sides of paste.

3.     Cover all of the egg with the paste and try to craft it into a meatball. If you are brave, sprinkle coffee (trust us, it's good)! Bake on a preheated oven (180c) for approx 20-30 minutes.

4.     Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly, then serve warm.
