Scotch Eggs... Another Way
Thursday, January 15, 2009 | Time: 8:00 AM

Scotch eggs are really cool. Its like a whole breakfast in one little delicious bundle. Or two, if you've got a big appetite! They're basically hard boiled eggs, wrapped in sausage, then breadcrumbs, and fried. Yum, right? Heart attack city, right?
Well, I discovered you can bake them, too. Apparently its just as good. Quite a bit healthier. Haven't tried it yet. Honestly, its because I don't have any bread crumbs.
But, today, I am inspired! I've been browsing through this fantastic bento site by a real Japanese lady who really knows what she's doing (Jealous! Wish she was MY mom, right?) and I noticed one of the pictures (the site is in Japanese, so I just window shop) had Scotch eggs but it looked as if she wrapped them in prosciutto!! Brilliant!
I never buy prosciutto, but I decided to make my own version. I've got loads of turkey bacon (Sams has a big box of 3 whole packages for under $5! I've got two packages just chillin' in my freezer.) So this is a great way to use it up.
No need for a recipe, really.

Just take a hard boiled egg and two pieces of turkey bacon... Wrap the egg long ways with one piece of bacon, hold it secure with your finger while you wrap it horizontal-ways with another piece of bacon. Secure with a toothpick. Or in my case, I've got these handy metal skewers - reusable! (I like to use them to make stuffed chicken or pork chops, they hold up better and don't mind being cooked.)
Then bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-30 minutes until they're crispy on the outside, or however you like your bacon in the mornings.
These are wonderful in lunches, great cold or hot.
