Tuna Scotch Eggs

If you love the traditional version but are after a healthy option why not give this one a go. This baked tuna version is still just as delicious but makes a lighter lunch option. So give it a go.

Cook Time: 20 – 30 mins

Prep Time: 20 mins

Portions: 2


  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tin of Tuna
  • 2-3 Large Potatoes
  • 4 Slices of bread (For Breadcrumbs)
  • Salt, Pepper and Herbs


  1. First you will need to boil your eggs and preheat your oven so heat your oven to 180c/ Gas Mark 4 and put your eggs to boil for approximately 6 mins
  2. Once your eggs are ready put them into cold water to stop them from cooking then put to one side. But in the mean time it’s time to get your potatoes ready. So peel and chop them into equal size pieces and put them on to boil until they are completely cooked
  3. While your potatoes are cooking make your breadcrumbs by putting them in a food processer and blend until fine crumbs or use a grater if you don’t have one. Then put in a flat tray or plate to us later
  4. Now your potatoes are cooked drain them and mash until smooth, then put in a large bowl
  5. Now add your tin of tuna to your mash and mix well then add your salt, pepper and herbs to taste
  6. Now your eggs are cool peal them (this works best when you peel them under water, so give it a go)
  7. It’s now time to create your scotch egg. So grab your egg and pat your tuna and potato mix around being careful not to pop your egg, then roll in your bread crumbs
  8. Now they are shaped put on a lined baking try and bake for 20 mins or until they are golden brown. Then enjoy
