Scotch Eggs

Picnic season in getting nearer and nearer! I expect you are as excited as I am. Who doesn't love picnics?
My favourite's are when just have them in the back-garden with a blanket and lots of sunshine.
What is your favourite picnic spot?

You've probably heard of scotch/picnic eggs. Usually I by-pass them in the supermarket because they are full of fat, salt, and I don't know what else; plus they just plain don't taste good.
There are a few elements to this recipe and it is somewhat time-consuming to make your own, but it is worth it.

Printable Recipe
Adapted from Weight Watchers

Serves - 4
ProPoints per serving ( 1 egg) - 8

4 whole eggs
300g sausagemeat
1 tbsp fresh parsley
2 tsp dried mixed herbs
1 egg white, lightly beaten
50g dried breadcrumbs

Hard boil the eggs for 12 minutes. Drain, cool in cold water, then shell them.
Mix together the sausagemeat, parsley, mixed herbs and egg white. Season and divide into four equal portions. Pat each portion into a flat disc, place the egg in the middle, and roll the sausagemeat around the egg until completely covered. Roll them in dried breadcrumbs and chill for 10 minutes.
Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5. Put the eggs on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. Cool, then serve.

Is the weather getting a little warmer where you are?
Is it boiling hot already, or still cold as ice?
Wherever you are I hope the sun is shining soon.
