The classic pub snack gets a WW Freestyle™ makeover with zero-hero turkey breast mince.


  • 8 Eggs, boiled
  • 1 Egg, raw, beaten
  • 500g Turkey/Chicken Breast Mincemeat
  • 5 sprigs of thyme, finely chopped
  • 5 sprigs fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 5 sprigs parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 4 level tablespoons plain flour (plus a little for dusting)
  • 50g Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon rapeseed oil


  1. Boil the 8 eggs for 6 mins, then drain and cool under cold running water. Peel and pat dry with kitchen paper.  Then remove the shells.
  2. Mix together the onion, garlic, turkey mince and herbs.
  3. Divide the meat mixture into 8.
  4. Dust a work surface with flour, roll each portion of mince into a ball, then flatten in to a circle, large enough to encase an egg.
  5. Put an egg in the centre and use your hands to mould the mince around it, so it completely covers the egg.
  6. Roll each encased egg to smooth the shape.
  7. Beat the remaining egg and pour onto a plate. Put the flour on another plate and the breadcrumbs on a 3rd plate.
  8. Roll each egg first in the flour, then the beaten egg and lastly in the breadcrumbs.
  9. Put on a baking tray and chill for 30 mins.
  10. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees or 180 degrees for fan oven, gas mark 6.
  11. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the eggs in batches, for 1 – 2 minutes.
  12. Transfer to a baking tray and bake for 10 – 12 minutes until golden.
