After becoming addicted to the scotch eggs at Sweet Revenge, I knew I had to learn to make them. These delicious morsels are great for a fancy brunch, but work well as a to go snack. I know they are deep fried and completely unhealthy, but we can indulge once in a while. And if you want to get fancy, try them out with eggs other than chicken. I see Cornish hen Scotch eggs making an appearance at my next dinner party.
8 oz sausage (your favorite)
1 tsp of a mixture of sage and thyme (chopped)
Salt & pepper
All purpose flour
4 peeled hard boiled eggs
1 egg (beaten)
Mix the sausage, herbs, Worcestershire and salt and pepper.
Lightly flour your hands.
Separate the sausage mix into four parts and then flatten them into four patties.
Sprinkle the hard boiled eggs with flour.
Wrap the hard boiled eggs in the sausage mixture.
Dip the sausage covered eggs in beaten egg and then roll in the breadcrumbs.
Deep fry for about 7 minutes at 350 F.
Serve & enjoy.
