In honor of the Wizarding World opening, try these Scotch Eggs

We first tried these at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando. They are a treat from the British Isles that is like no other. They are typically between 400 and 600 calories each. I found some pretty complicated recipes for them but I came up with an idea that makes them super easy and much lighter. Sometimes I use a different flavored sausage that changes up the flavor. I always use chicken or turkey though.

Scotch Eggs

scotch eggs

Makes 4 eggs


4 large eggs, hard-boiled, chilled

Butter flavored cooking spray

½ cup whole wheat panko crumbs

½ lb raw loose turkey breakfast sausage

4 tbsp honey-mustard dip, optional


Heat the oven to 400. Lightly spray a small baking sheet with cooking spray. Pour the panko into a plate. Divide the sausage evenly into 4 sections.

Take one section of sausage and put it in your less dominant hand (wearing gloves if you wish), create a divot in the sausage and place an egg in it. Use your hands to coat the whole egg in the sausage. Place the sausage covered egg into the panko and roll to coat it. Place the coated egg on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the other 3 eggs.

Spray the coated eggs lightly with cooking spray and bake for 30 minutes, until the sausage is cooked and the panko is browned and crispy.  Serve with 1 tablespoon honey mustard dip if desired for an additional 46 calories.

Honey-Mustard Dip & Dressing

I have long been quite addicted to the honey-mustard dip and dressings at a few restaurants I’ve frequented. I decided to attempt to make a light version myself as a late addition to this book. It was a real hit. Use the dip for chicken tenders, or to coat chicken or salmon then bake, it’s also great with fries or onion rings. I like to dip Scotch eggs in it too. One ingredient addition turns this into a great salad dressing and the star of my wilted spinach salad which can be found in my upcoming cookbook, Food Done Right!

Makes about one cup


½ cup light mayo

¼ cup Dijon mustard

1 tbsp spicy brown mustard

¼ cup honey

2 stevia packets

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (for dressing only)


Mix mayo, mustards, honey, and stevia until combined for dip.

To make Honey-Mustard dressing

Add apple cider to prepared honey-mustard dip and stir or shake in sealed container to combine.
