A Scotch Egg is a classic British dish, also known as a "Picnic Egg", that is typically served as an on-the-go snack. This dish is typically fried, but we've lightened this up by baking in a high-temp oven and using turkey meat!

Ingredients

  • 4 Eggland's Best Hard Cooked and Peeled Eggs
  • 1 Eggland's Best egg, well beaten
  • 3/4 pound ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix ground Turkey with salt, pepper, oregano and basil; divide into 4 equal portions and set aside.

Dip hard cooked eggs in water and then coat with flour.

Wrap each egg with meat, making sure they are covered completely.

Beat shell egg in a small bowl and dip each meat-covered hard cooked egg in beaten egg, then cover throughly in breadcrumbs; repeat for all eggs.
