My first exposure to crispy, greasy, delicious Keto Scotch Eggs was on YouTube. The normal recipe dredges the meat wrapped egg in wheat flour and is then deep-fried. I was left inspired but also wondering how to make a healthier gluten-free and keto version. My second thought was if they can be keto-friendly, can they be simplified further for a carnivore diet?
Three things inspired me to make this recipe. My love for meat, my love for eggs, and my love for a good recipe challenge!

Line two small rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
Combine beef and salt in a large bowl. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together and form into 12 meatballs. Place 6 meatballs on each of the lined baking sheets and press flat.
Place one boiled egg in the middle of each circle of meat and wrap the meat around the egg, leaving no gaps or holes.
