A hardboiled egg wrapped in sausage meat and deep-fried until crispy is pure keto genius.



  • 4 large whole egg
  • 3/4 lb Meat Per Pound, Sausage
  • 4 tbsp Oil, industrial, canola for salads, woks and light frying


1 Hard boil eggs by placing in a pot and covering with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling rapidly, turn the heat off and cover the pot with a lid for 10 minutes.
2 Transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. When cooled, peel the eggs.
3 Divide the sausage meat into 4 equal portions.
4 Use your hands to form each portion of meat into a flat pancake a few inches wide. Wrap the meat around an egg, gently shaping it so there are no cracks and the egg is completely hidden.
5 For pan-frying, preheat the oven to 375. Then, pour just enough oil/fat into a deep pan to coat the bottom of the pan. Heat for 2-3 minutes over high heat on the stove until the oil is shimmering.
6 Cook two eggs at a time. Roll the eggs around every few minutes in the oil so all sides of the meat become nicely browned. Cook each egg for about 8 minutes total.
7 Transfer to the oven and cook for 6-8 minutes more until the sausage is cooked through.
8 Eat the eggs warm or cold. Serve alone or with pickles, mayonnaise or hot sauce.
