Scotch eggs are surprisingly simple to make, we have made ours lovely and lean by using a different cut of pork with bacon rather than sausage meat. Coated in crunchy breadcrumbs they are great for a summer picnic. Why not have a go at mini ones by mashing up egg and rolling into balls to make the centres.

Hi Samantha, the only thing we can think of is maybe use quorn mince or some kind of meat substitute in place of the meat, it should have the same effect as meat would.
