Recipe - Paleo Scotch Eggs

A great breakfast protein that's paleo and very filling. Make a bunch and they're easy to reheat during the week or to even eat cold.

1 Hard Boiled Egg, Peeled
1/4 to 1/3 lb of ground pork (We use our own sausage made with Italian Seasoning)
Pork Rinds

Heat oven to 375F

Flatten out the meat in palm of your hand until it's thin but still holds together.

Place egg in middle and wrap the meat all around making sure to seal the seams. You can form the meat now as well to make it even all around.

Roll the scotch egg now in crumbled pork rinds as a substitute for Panko breadcrumbs.

Fry on low-medium heat on each side for 2 minutes in an oven proof pan. Be careful not to get the pan too hot as the pork rinds will easily burn.

Bake for 20-25 minutes at 375F until the temperature of the meat reaches 165F. Don't worry about the egg getting up to that temperature as it is already cooked.

Recipe - Paleo Salmon Cakes

I've had a lot of interest for our paleo salmon cakes however these could easily be a paleo fish cake if you want to substitute any fresh or canned fish that you may have

Paleo Salmon Cakes

2 Cans of Salmon + any cooked salmon that you may have left over
Flesh of one large cooked sweet potato (We roast, others boil)
2 Eggs
2 Tbsp Fresh Dill or 1 Tbsp of Dried Dill
2 tsps salt
1 tsp black pepper
Coconut Flour to Bind

Coconut Flour
Ground Pork Rinds

Combine all ingredients except the coconut flour and mix well. Everyday seems to be different and sometimes it binds immediately and sometimes I have to add in coconut flour. I'll start with a few Tbsp of coconut flour and continue mixing until it just starts to come together.

If you need to cook immediately, I would recommend baking them in a 375F oven for 15-20 minutes until warm in the middle. It's difficult to get a great crust when cooked immediately. Our cheat is to coat in ground pork rinds and it's a great paleo substitute to panko bread crumbs. Be careful though, the pork rinds burn easily.

If able, let cool for an hour in the fridge then shape into patties. If you want, coat in coconut flour and fry in coconut oil over medium-low heat for 4 minutes a side. The coconut flour is full of oil and will burn easily if the pan is too hot.

Top with some Bayonnaise and remaining dill and enjoy.

Whole30 Day by Day. Day 4.

Started out with a two egg omelette cooked in coconut oil stuffed to the gills with leftover braised cabbage.  So delicious.  It would've been really good with some mushrooms and spinach too!  Some strawberries and watermelon on the side.

Lunch was a bit of a mishmash of things.  Tuna salad made with bayonnaise and some chopped celery.  Lots of raw peppers and some pork rinds.  When I'm wanting a crunch, these fit the bill perfectly.  Just double check that they're fried in their own fat, not a seed oil and you're good to go.

It's a rainy evening here so we're having a mexican chicken stew.  This is a really simple recipe that I'll get posted tomorrow morning.  On the side, some mixed salad greens with cumin-lime dressing.
