Scotch Eggs

A gastropub favorite:  Hardboiled eggs wrapped in sausage and then fried.  Husband says these are proof that wife loves him.  Wife thinks these belly bombers may be proof that wife is trying to give husband a heart attack.  You decide 🙂

Eggs:  Roll the eggs in the flour…

  • 6 hardboiled eggs, peeled (you can make these ahead of time).
  • 1/4 cup flour

Sausage:  Either wrap your floured, hardboiled eggs in 1 lb. prepared breakfast sausage or make your own by mixing together…

  • 1 lb ground pork sausage meat
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped herbs (recommended half italian parsley and half sage)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

For frying:  Once your eggs are wrapped in the sausage, pass through the scrambled egg, coat with bread crumbs, and fry until browned (about 5-6 minutes)

  • 1-2 eggs, lightly scrambled
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (plain or panko)
  • oil for frying… you can get the deep fryer out if you’ve got it!
  • salt for finishing

For serving:

  • Mustard, mayonnaise, or salad greens
