3-Ingredient Carnivore Scotch Eggs (No Pork)

Crispy, greasy Carnivore Scotch Eggs are loaded with protein and make a great appetizer or main portion of the meal. The best part is that this pork-free version has only 3-ingredients!

Serve hot, pack into a picnic, or store in the fridge to use throughout the week.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Servings: 12 Scotch eggs


  • 2 pounds ground beef or chicken sausage
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 12 large boiled eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Line two small rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Combine beef (or chicken) and salt in a large bowl. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together and form into 12 meatballs. Place 6 meatballs on each of the lined baking sheets and press flat.
  4. Place one boiled egg in the middle of each circle of meat and wrap the meat around the egg, leaving no gaps or holes.
  5. Bake about 15 minutes, turn them over, and continue for another 10 minutes, until outside is golden brown. Place under the broiler to finish for 5 minutes for a crispy shell. Serve hot.

  1. These are a great way to enjoy a filling keto or paleo or carnivore meal. I get hamburger and use a box of FALAFEL spices for a middle-eastern twist…and yes it has some dried lentils in the mix. It zips it up another way if I don’t have or want sausage. They are big because wrapped around an egg -so it doesn’t take many to feel full. Serve with cucumber-sour cream sauce if you eat dairy.

    Just made the Carnivore version, so easy and simple: ground beef, boiled egg and salt. Looks amazing, can’t wait to eat them…

  4. I just made these, and they’re EGG-cellent! But I used half beef and half ground pork sausage. Could you please explain to me why chicken is OK but pork is not? As I understand it, pork and chicken are fed soy and grains but they lack the enzyme to convert omega-6’s to saturated fat like cows do. So why the abstinence from pork? Thanks and great recipe!
