There are many egg recipes that are great for on-the-go meals or simply for great brunches or breakfasts. My hubby has a sweet tooth and so does one of our girls. As a result, they love to have some type of sweet element in a lot of their meals, especially breakfast. How do you have something sweet with eggs? Maple Scotch Eggs, the mouth-watering combination of eggs, pork and Canadian Maple Syrup – yum, yum!
4 hard-boiled eggs
1 lb ground pork
1 tbsp maple syrup (more for drizzling after, optional)
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp rosemary
1 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tbsp olive oil
The first step is to get hard-boiled eggs. Here is how I make my hard-boiled eggs perfectly.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Shell the cooled eggs and set them aside. Next mix the ground pork, maple syrup, basil, rosemary, garlic and oregano in a bowl. Divide the mixture into 4 quarters. Make a thin patty with each quarter of the ground pork mixture and wrap each mixture around an egg till the egg is completely covered.
Brush the “meat eggs” in the olive oil and place on a cookie sheet and bake for 30 min or till desired brownness.
Once out of the oven you can drizzle some additional maple syrup on the scotch eggs if you so desire.
These were a great hit with our daughters. They are great for a snack or for breakfast. They can also be eaten cold as leftovers.
Originally, scotch eggs were meant to be bar food in Europe, but have migrated to our home in Manitoba, Canada where we enjoy them very much. The original scotch eggs are also known to be breaded and deep fried. Our Maple scotch eggs are a healthier alternative and a great way to start the morning off right with a healthy dose of protein. The sweet factor is an instant hit. Give them a try and you won’t be disappointed.
