Gluten Free Mexican Turkey Scotch Eggs

Gluten free Mexican turkey scotch eggs are today’s recipe here at 3ten. Did you watch the last season of MasterChef? Well, a few weeks back they had a picnic episode and they had to make scotch eggs. My husband was like ‘oh, those look so good!’ Challenge accepted. The next day I ran some errands and picked up some ground turkey and some gluten free rice ‘breadcrumbs’. My goal on this recipe is to put my own little twist on it.
