1 lb (450 g) ground pork sausage (or use ground pork with 2 Tablespoons [6 g] Italian seasoning)
1/4 cup (30 g) almond flour
2 Tablespoons (14 g) flax meal
2 Tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil or avocado oil, divided
1 Tablespoon (3 g) Italian seasoning
4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
Salt and pepper, to taste
1Preheat the air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
2In a large bowl, combine the pork sausage, almond flour, flax meal, 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) of olive or avocado oil, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
3Divide the sausage mixture into 4 equal portions and wrap each portion around a hard-boiled egg.
4Place the eggs into the air fryer basket or tray, without touching, and brush with the remaining 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) of olive oil or avocado oil. (If needed, cook the eggs in several batches.)
5Cook the eggs for 15 to 17 minutes, turning over halfway through the cooking time, until the sausage layer is browned and cooked through. Use a meat thermometer to check that the sausage layer reaches a temperature of 160°F (70°C).
6Carefully remove the Scotch eggs from the air fryer and let them cool slightly before serving.
