Scotch Eggs


Many moons ago I went on a date to our local pub that has a clever name “The Pub”. I wasn’t impressed with my date but the snack we shared that evening was memorable. It was love at first sight taste. I’m talking about the Scotch Eggs not my date as that was our first, last, and never again time together. The eggs though, popular in Scotland and U.K., are still in my life. True love never fades. Hard-boiled eggs are wrapped in sausage, breaded and fried. Easy peasy. Not exactly diet food, but it won’t kill you. At least not immediately. Just kidding folks!

Ingredients:
Makes 8 eggs
2 pounds Bulk Pork Sausage
8 medium size Eggs, hard-boiled
2 Eggs, beaten
½ cup all-purpose Flour
1 cup Breadcrumbs
Oil
Ranch Dressing and/or Dijon Mustard for dipping

 

Directions:
Place eggs in a pot with cold water. Bring to a boil and cook for about 8-10 minutes. Drain and let sit under running cold water for a couple of minutes. The eggs will peal easy and clean. I always boil extra 2-3 eggs just in case one cracks open during cooking time. Also, if they’re smaller I have enough to use up all the sausage. Or I use the leftover sausage for breakfast the next morning. Whatever strikes your fancy.
Divide sausage into portions and flatten each into a patty. Place an egg in the middle of each patty and mold the sausage up around the egg to enclose it.
Place the flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs in three separate bowls. Roll each boiled egg first in the flour, then in the egg, and then in the breadcrumbs to coat. Fry them in deep fryer or in a deep skillet over medium heat until they are golden brown, about 5-10 minutes, turning occasionally.
Serve warm or cold with Ranch dressing or Dijon mustard. Salad is optional but beer is a must!

    eggs look great and sound like they taste even better. I have a fear of deep frying. So I will just savor your page.
