  • Food processor or blender
  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • Stove
  • Large pot


  • 5 soft boiled eggs (shells removed)
  • 5 large uncooked sausages (or 10 small)

Paleo/gluten free coating

  • 1/4 cup ground pork rinds
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder


  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • In a food processor or blender, grind up your pork rinds. You can also do this with a mortar and pestle.
  • Mix all ingredients together for the coating in a bowl and set aside.
  • Remove sausage casing from uncooked sausages. You can do this by running a knife lengthwise down the side of the sausage. Then you will be able to peel off the casing and remove the meat on the inside.
  • Using your hands, roll the sausage into 5 small balls.

  • Flatten the sausage balls into disk like shapes.
  • Gently place each peeled soft boiled egg in the middle of a sausage disk and begin wrapping the sausage around. It may seem like the sausage wont fully enclose the egg, but keep gently pushing and spreading thicker areas around and eventually it will enclose the egg.
  • Once all the eggs have been enclosed, dip them into the pork rind mixture and toss to completely coat.

  • Place the coated balls on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until the sausage is cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven and enjoy.
