Eggs are a great source of easy protein but can easily get boring really fast. Here is a recipe for “Earth Eggs” more commonly known as scotch eggs that is a nice way to change up your eggs. When I made these I was amazed at how filling they are and easy too!
1 lb lean ground beef
1 small onion, minced
2/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
Mix the ground beef, onions 1/3 cup of the bread crumbs, milk, salt, garlic powder and onion powder. Divide into six equal portions.
Form each portion over a hard-boiled egg so that the egg is completely covered.
Dip each into the beaten egg and roll in the remaining breadcrumbs.
Fry the eggs over medium heat until the meat is completely cooked and the crumbs are golden brown.
Remove from the pan and cut each egg into halves or thirds.
Remove excess oil from pan.
Mix the Worchestershire sauce and the ketchup into the frying pans and heat till warm throughout.
Return the egg to the pan and rotate them in the sauce until completely coated.
