Can You Freeze Scotch Eggs?
Yes, you can freeze cooked scotch eggs. When thawed, the texture of the boiled egg will be slightly mushy but it’s still pretty tasty. They must be thawed first before re-heating in the microwave or air fryer. Do not try to air fry them straight from frozen because it won’t work. The sausage will be very dried out and tough, while the egg will be still cold and frozen. Patience is key!
Low-Carb Air Fryer Scotch Eggs
- 1 pound (454 g) uncooked bulk sausage
- 5-6 (5-6) hard boiled eggs , peeled
- 1-2 (1-2) raw eggs , beaten
- 1 cup (480 ml) coating choice (crushed pork rinds, almond flour, coconut flour or preferred coating *see notes below)
- Mustard and/or hot sauce oil spray , for coating
- Divide the sausage into 5 or 6 equal parts, depending on how thick you want the sausage to wrap around the egg.
- For each portion of sausage, flatten nto a thin patty about 4” wide. Place the boiled egg in center and wrap sausage around the whole egg. Repeat for all eggs.
- Add beaten raw eggs to a bowl. Dip sausage-wrapped egg in raw egg mixture, then in breading. Spray outside of coated egg evenly with oil.
- Air Fry at 400°F for 12-16 minutes, turn halfway through cooking. The thicker the sausage layer, the longer it takes to cook.
- Cut in half and serve with mustard swipe on top of yolk. Add hot sauce, too, if you want. Delicous!
Coating Choice: If you don’t mind a few more carbs, bread crumbs, panko flakes, or crushed crackers work great as breading choices too. For fewer calories, you can omit the coatings (beaten egg & breading). The sausage-only outside is great, too, but make sure to spray outside of sausage with oil.
If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).
