Smoky Paprika Scotch Egg (Slimming World friendly)

 I had the idea to make these as I love the 'Heck' smoky paprika sausages and thought they would make a lovely Scotch Egg. I don't use anything to replace the breadcrumb coating as I don't think you really need it. If you really want it you can use your bread healthy extra to make some breadcrumbs.

Smoky Paprika Scotch Egg

1 pack Heck smoky paprika sausages
5 eggs (large free range)
low calorie spray oil


Place the eggs in cold water and bring to a boil slowly (I add 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda to the water as it helps the shells come off but you don't have to) Boil for 5 minutes so the yolk is only just cooked then run them under cold water until cool then remove the shells.

Take the skins off the sausages by cutting the skin down the side of the sausage and remove and discard the skins.

Take two of the sausages and squish them together .. This is the fun part :)

Place the hardboiled egg in the middle and mould the sausagemeat around the egg until it is covered. Continue until you have done them all then place them in a roasting tin lined with foil (makes it easier to clean afterwards) Spray lightly with oil.

Bake at Gas 6 /200/ 400 for 30 minutes

Makes 5 and they are 1/2 syn each.
