This British classic is one of those that will forever be popular. Meat + eggs = a keto match like no other.
Ingredients
  • 500g lean pork mince (<5% fat)
  • 6 medium eggs
  • 1 TBSP coarse Himalayan pink salt (U.S. option HERE)
  • 1 tsp fine Himalayan pink salt (U.S. option HERE)
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Season All
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • 100g crumbed pork scratchings (optional - not included in macros)
Instructions
  1. put eggs in a pan and cover them with water, add coarse salt and place over medium-high heat; when the water starts to boil, set the timer for 3 minutes, then drain the hot water and fill the pan with cold running water and drain it; repeat 2-3 times to cool the eggs; peel and set aside.
  2. in a large mixing bowl, combine meat, spice and seasoning, squeezing and squishing between your fingers (I recommend food safe disposable gloves, U.S. option HERE).
  3. pre-heat oven to 200°C fan.
  4. divide the pork mixture into 6 equal portions (85g each).
  5. place a portion over a sheet of cling film, cover it with another piece of cling film, and flatten it using your hand or a small rolling pin.
  6. flip the flattened meat onto your palm, position an egg over the middle and cup it; gently wrap the meat around it, pinching and sculpting with your fingers until the egg is fully enclosed.
  7. repeat with the remaining meatballs and eggs; roll lightly in crumbed pork scratchings (optional), then transfer to a baking tray lined with foil (shiny side up).
  8. bake for 15 minutes, turn eggs over and bake for another 15 minutes.
  9. serve hot or cold.
