Scotch Eggs


  • 4 hardboiled eggs peeled
  • 1 pound pork sausage (mild or hot)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour with salt and pepper added
  • 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs


Preheat the oven to 400.
Take 3 bowls and add 2 beaten eggs to one bowl, flour seasoned with salt and pepper to another bowl, and 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs to the last bowl.

Take the pork sausage and divide it into 4. Flatten each 1/4 into a disk and wrap a hard-boiled egg around each making sure to pinch the meat to ensure the egg is well covered.

Take each egg/sausage ball and roll it in the flour. Then roll each in the egg wash. Then roll it around in the breadcrumbs. Repeat the egg wash and breadcrumbs for each ball to ensure a good coating.

Place the 4 balls apart from each other on a parchment-lined-sided baking sheet and bake for 30 mins until crispy on the outside and the sausage is cooked.

Enjoy hot or let cool to room temp and enjoy. These are great for picnics, make-ahead lunch or dinner with different salads.

I served mine with potato salad, cut-up watermelon, and a green salad!
