Low-Carb Scotch Eggs

Good morning, everyone! Hope y'all had a wonderful Memorial Day!
In my never-ending quest for new low-carb recipes, I stumbled upon a few for Scotch Eggs last week. They all sounded wonderful, but many of them had bread crumbs or flour incorporated.
So, I decided to experiment.
And like most of my experiements, I opted to add bacon to the mix. Because let's be real.. bacon just makes everything better.
To start, I took one pound of raw sausage and mixed in one egg and 1/4 cup of shredded cheese into a bowl.
While I was doing that, I had five eggs boiling on the stove (12 minutes in salted water).
Once the eggs had cooled down, I peeled them all and covered them with the sausage mixture. Then, I wrapped them in bacon, with wooden toothpicks holding everything in place.
Pretty simple, right?
I then cooked at 400* for 30 minutes, after which I set the oven on broil to allow the bacon to crisp, turning the sausage balls every few minutes or so until the bacon had browned.
And voila!
