I absolutely love Slimming World scotch eggs! They’re simple and straightforward to make, but impressive enough to be served at a family dinner party or picnic.

They also make a fantastic lunchtime staple, alongside a leafy side salad. 

Once you’ve tried these, you’ll definitely turn your back on their supermarket and service station counterparts. 

Best of all, it’s highly likely that you’ve already got all the ingredients you need in your kitchen cupboards. Here’s what you need to know…

How many calories are in these scotch eggs?

There are approximately 269 calories per scotch egg. 

Do remember that different brands of sausages may have hugely different calorie counts, so to protect your weight loss, always make sure that you select your ingredients accordingly and double check your calculations. 

The average man needs to consume around 2,500 calories a day to maintain a healthy body weight.

For the average woman, it’s around 2,000 calories a day.

If you’re aiming to lose weight, you’ll want to consume less than this to ensure that you’re in a calorie deficit and help you to reach your goals!

How many Slimming World Syns are in this recipe? 

Syns are trademarked by Slimming World, and values are only available to current paying members. 

As such, I have decided to omit Syn values from my recipes moving forward. 

Rest assured though, the recipes here will always be made to be as slimming friendly as possible. 

Refer to the official Slimming World app to calculate the Syns, or speak with your consultant.

How many Weight Watchers Points are in these scotch eggs?

Choosing your ingredients for this recipe 

To keep your scotch eggs slimming friendly, make sure that you select a low fat sausage.

Heck is a popular option with Slimming World followers, and all the big supermarkets do own brand versions too. 

If you want to make your scotch eggs extra special, consider using golden yolk eggs.

Clarence Court is a popular brand that again is available in most supermarkets, though there are also own brand options. They’re a little more expensive than standard free range eggs, but they’re worth considering if you’re trying to impress! 

You’ll also notice in the recipe that I use panko breadcrumbs. In my opinion, these are the best breadcrumbs available, and their golden crunch is unrivalled! 

If you’re following Slimming World though and you want to cut down on the Syns, you could substitute these for breadcrumbs that you make yourself from your Healthy Extra allowance. 

How to serve your Slimming World scotch eggs 

I love serving these scotch eggs for lunch, with a simple side salad and The Skinny Food Co’s Smokey BBQ sauce

If you really want to push the boat out though or you’ve got a special occasion coming up, they would be a perfect part of a ploughman’s platter. 

In this case, serve on a rustic sharing board and add any of the following: 

Of course, if you’re following a diet plan such as Slimming World or Weight Watchers, always make sure that you do your calculations carefully to protect your weight loss!

Scotch Eggs

These slimming friendly scotch eggs make the perfect lunch, served with a side salad!
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time35 mins
Course: Main Course, Snack
Cuisine: British
Servings: 2
Calories: 269kcal


  • 3 eggs
  • 4 low fat sausages
  • 40 grams panko breadcrumbs
  • Low calorie cooking spray


  • Preheat your oven to 190 degrees.
  • Bring a pan of water to the boil, gently lower in 2 of the eggs, and bring back to the boil.
  • Simmer the eggs for 10 minutes, then remove from the pain, drain, and run under cold water until they're cool to the touch. Peel, and set to one side.
  • Meanwhile, take your sausages and remove the meat from the skin. Place into a bowl, and mix with a folk so it creates a large ball.
  • Divide the sausage meat into two equal balls, and squash flat with the palm of your hand. Mould each ball of sausage meat around each egg, getting the thickness as even as possible.
  • Crack your remaining egg into a dish and beat. Roll each sausage-wrapped egg in the beaten egg mixture.
  • Spread your breadcrumbs over a plate. Gently roll the scotch eggs in the breadcrumbs, so they're evenly coated.
  • Place your scotch eggs on a baking tray, and spritz with low calorie cooking spray.
  • Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, turning once, or until they're crispy and golden brown.
  • Serve and enjoy!
