Part of a Perfectly Paleo Breakfast

I am a huge Walt Disney World fan. My inspiration for these little guys is from the Rose & Crown Pub in Epcot. I love to grab a hard cider and Scotch egg as we walk the World Showcase!

Take your own stroll down happy lane as you eat these little guys.

Scotch Eggs are fantastic:

  • After a workout
  • Before a big business meeting
  • On a Whole30
  • As part of a Low Carb, LCHF, Atkins, or ketogenic dieting plan
  • For a portable breakfast
  • The paleo diet, whole30
  • If you're tired of traditional eggs for breakfast!
