High Fiber Scotch Eggs

This is a delicious and filling recipe that is full of fiber and protein. Scotch Eggs are a traditional food in Great Britain, but the store-bought ones are high in fats, salt and chemicals. This is a much healthier alternative without sacrificing flavor.

Makes 8.

Alternatively, you can mix the powdered Scan Bran with seasoning for a different taste. And, if you are on a low carb diet, you can skip the Scan Bran steps altogether.
