Scotch Eggs

Do people still do “Throw-back Thursday” on Facebook?  It’s kind of a fun thing to do and so I thought I would do that today by bringing back an oldie but a goodie.  Seriously, if you have never tried Scotch Eggs before, you should.  The first time I had one was at Disney World…


My daughter ordered Scotch Eggs at an English Pub at Epcot.  She went bonkers over them so, of course, I had to have a taste.  I was gobsmacked!  Could not believe how yummy they were!  She asked our waitress for the recipe and she was happy to share how she, personally, makes them at home in England.  Did we find the napkin she wrote the recipe down on?  I don’t think so.  So, the other day I was looking through a magazine and I found a recipe!  Yahoo!   Chasity LeGrand shared this recipe via  I have made my variations to her recipe, below:

1 quart oil for frying
4 hard-boiled eggs, cooled and peeled
1 pound pork sausage
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 eggs, beaten (did not take that much so I scrambled the rest for someone else to eat while I was making this)
2 cups dried bread crumbs, seasoned

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees.

2.  Flatten the sausage and make a patty to completely cover each egg and gently shape into a ball.  Very lightly flour the sausage and coat with beaten egg.  Roll in bread crumbs to cover evenly.


3.  Deep-fry until golden brown, then bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.

4.  Cut eggs in half to serve.  I served mine with spring mix salad and coarse ground mustard.
