Serves 6

  • 7 pieces eggs
  • 87 grams ground almonds
  • 450 grams lean turkey mince
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon fresh sage
  • 1 piece shallot, finely diced
  1. Gently fry the chopped shallot in a frying pan until browned, then set aside to cool.
  2. Place 6 of the eggs in a pan of boiling water and leave on a high heat for 5 minutes, then remove and soak them in cold water.
  3. Flatten the turkey mixture, then place each egg into the centre and gently fold the turkey mixture so it covers the whole egg. Repeat with all 6 eggs.
  4. Crack the last egg into a bowl and whisk, then coat the turkey in egg and roll in the almonds.
  5. Preheat the oven to 170C/340F, and leave the eggs for 10 minutes before baking.
  6. Bake for 20-30 minutes.
