Stuffed Meat Roll with Eggs, Carrots & Gherkins

Do you like scotch eggs?
If you do, you’re gonna love this recipe.
It’s quite similar to scotch eggs, but apart from the egg you also get some veggie.
It is easy to make but at the same time looks impressive, in my opinion.
Topped with some cheese and a side of mashed potatoes this stuffed meat roll is the perfect family meal.

Here are the ingredients.


For the roll:

  • 700g beef mince, about 24.7oz
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 50g parsley, chopped, about 1.8oz
  • 1 egg
  • 1tbsp cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • 100g cheddar cheese, grated, about 3.5oz

For the stuffing:

  • 4 hard boiled eggs
  • 2 carrots, steamed and cut into sticks
  • 100g gherkins, about 3.5oz


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine all the roll ingredients.
  3. Mix well and leave in the fridge for an hour.
  4. Cover a working surface with a cling film. It should be big enough for you to unroll the beef mince mixture.
  5. Layer the mince meat mixture and shape it gently to a rectangle, about 0.5cm thick.
  6. Arrange a row with carrots, then eggs and gherkins.
  7. Repeat until you’ve used all the veggies and eggs. Do not put too much though as it would be difficult to roll it.
  8. Using the cling film, squeezing carefully, start rolling until you’ve made a roll.
  9. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top.
  10. Place it on a baking tray and cook in the oven for about 40 minutes or until ready.
  11. Slice the roll and serve it with some mashed potatoes.

Tip: I prefer using 50/50 beef & pork mince, it is tastier and juicier!:-)
