Scotch Eggs

My children have been begging me to make Scotch Eggs for the last two months. I don't make them very often, because they are rich. I take them to pot luck dinners occasionally and they always get rave reviews. We originally prepared this recipe when learning about the British Isles. Scotch Eggs are considered "pub food" and are served hot or at room temperature.

Scotch Eggs

Hard Boil eggs. We usually prepare 1 1/2 eggs per person in my family. Remove shells.

Cover eggs with sausage, taking care to seal fully. Roll eggs in plain bread crumbs.

Heat vegetable oil in large skillet/fry pan. Carefully place eggs in oil and fry on all sides.
Remove from heat when sausage is fully cooked. Drain.

When slightly cooled, cut eggs in half. Serve with crispy French bread and tossed salad.

These look so good; I will try them soon. I have never heard of them so I was very glad for the pictures and the tutorial!

Let me know what you think. I love that it is a quick meal, unfortunately "I" don't need all the calories. :)

My mom made this. In fact, I just had her make it for me not so long ago. I had a mad craving for it. I usually don't eat pork, but every now and then I get a craving!
My mom bakes hers and we eat it for breakfast. Also, she rolls it in saltine cracker crumbs instead of the breadcrumbs.

A very tasty treat indeed!
