thanksgiving Scotch Eggs: bacon+ground turkey+eggs=yum. #primal on Twitpic

  • 1 dz range fed, organic eggs, medium boiled
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 24 slices uncured bacon, 12 fine chop, 12 whole
  • 1 t pumpkin pie spice
  1. Boil the eggs to medium: boil for 5 minutes, turn off heat, let sit in hot water for 3 minutes, cool quickly with cold water; peel.
  2. Combine turkey, the chopped bacon, and pumpkin pie spice. Let sit a bit to allow the flavors to meld.
  3. Divide the ground meat into 12 equal portions.
  4. Make each portion into a thin patty (use your hands).
  5. Carefully wrap the peeled, boiled egg in the patty.
  6. Wrap one whole slice of bacon around each wrapped egg.
  7. Bake at 400 F for 30 minutes.
  8. Share with friends.
Makes 1 dozen.

What I would change
  • More pumpkin pie spice. It was there, but too far in the background for my taste. Maybe 2 teaspoons?
  • Boil the eggs for 5+2, to allow for even more creaminess when baked.
  • Bake long enough to get a bit more crisp on the bacon.
