    We had these the other night for dinner and they were awesome.

    Ingredients
    - 6 hard-boiled eggs
    - 1 lb. ground breafast sausage
    - 1 cup breadcrumbs
    - 1 Tsp. salt
    - 1 Tsp. pepper
    - 2 eggs, beaten
    - 1/2 cup flour
    - Oil for frying

    Pre-prep prep~~Heat the frying oil to a temperature of 325-350 degrees Fahrenheit. Peel the hard-boiled eggs. Mix the salt and pepper with the breadcrumbs.~~

    Roll the eggs in the flour. Take a small handful of the sausage and wrap it around the egg, completely covering it. Do this for all the hard-cooked eggs. Dip the sausage-wrapped eggs in the beaten eggs and then roll in the breadcrumbs.

    Fry in the hot oil for 5-6 minutes. Be careful not to burn, but you want to make sure the sausage gets cooked through and that the heat is enough to reach the core of the egg.

    We made a home made mayonaise to dip and some good brown mustard. Yummy.

    I like garlic so placed a pickled clove into the middle. Yummy.

    I LOVE them, I usually bake them now. Too many pounds, ya know!

    I serve with some chutney or Tiger brand Hot Sauce on the side, can't wait to try the garlic in the center! [​IMG]

    One itty bitty thing- they're called Scotch Eggs, not Scottish Eggs. I have a dear friend in Scotland who had to teach me that stuff! [​IMG] She says whiskey and eggs are called Scotch- everything else is Scottish. [​IMG]

    Thanks for posting, I even have some hot sausage in the refrigerator! Cheers!

    Scotch Eggs are not named because they have anything to do with Scotland, they are actually an English invention. To "scotch" means to wrap in sausagemeat and breadcrumbs in preparation for frying. So technically they should be called Scotched Eggs. [​IMG]
