Scotch Eggs Recipe

A crispy coating made with cornflakes and pork sausage gives a different treatment to these hard-cooked eggs. "They're fabulous hot out of the oven," notes Dorothy Smith of El Dorado, Arkansas. "Or enjoy them cold for a snack before a soccer or baseball game."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 hard-cooked eggs
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup crushed cornflakes

Directions

  • 1. Divide the sausage into six portions; flatten and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Shape each portion around a peeled hard-cooked egg. Roll in beaten egg, then in cornflake crumbs. Place on a rack in a baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 30 minutes or until meat is no longer pink, turning every 10 minutes. Yield: 6 servings.

"This is a wonderful recipe that I have been making for years - best baked, not deep fried. I use medium eggs, form a meat patty on your hand, place egg on meat patty, wrap around the hard boiled egg, covering completely with meat, dip in egg & roll in the crumbs. Bake on my broiler pan & they are wonderful. Always make 1 doz. or more as they go fast! Taught a cooking class to grade school children & they loved them & it was easy for them to make. Always get compliments when I take or serve them for a brunch."

"These are called scotch eggs and are usually deep fried, but doing them in the oven would be so much healthier. Thanks for the directions. Oh and yes I agree with the others.....small or smallest in eggs are the best to use."

" I've been using peewee eggs for scotch eggs, AND devilled eggs. They're just the perfect size, but not easy to find. Ask your egg seller at the local farmers market.

"I do not use salt and pepper. I also use medium size eggs as they are easier to wrap the sausage around rather than large eggs. I put the crushed cornflakes on wax paper and then just roll the egg around. I found that easier than using a separate bowl."
