Baked Scottish Eggs

When I first saw Scottish Eggs I didn't know what they were until I took a closer look. After my first taste of Scottish Eggs, I was hooked. One of my co-workers fixed them for breakfast and brought them to work. These eggs flew off the break-room table in less than one hour. He didn't make enough, as far as I was concerned, and those who didn't get any complained. What a delight these eggs were. My co-worker did share the recipe and needless to say we had Scottish Eggs at our next potluck. Above is a photo of the Scottish Eggs my co-worker brought to work.

What you'll need and what to do.

  • Depending on how many Scottish Eggs you want, I use one pound of tube sausage to 6 medium eggs. I purchase sausage that is seasoned.
  • Beat at least three eggs in a bowl and set aside.
  • A bowl of bread crumbs set aside.
  • A bowl of flour set aside.
  • A frying pan.
  • Boil your eggs, cool them down, peel them and place them in a bowl or pot of water and place them in the refrigerator.
  • Cut your tube of sausage in six equal pieces.
  • Take a sausage piece, put some flour on it so it will be easy to handle.
  • I use a small glass to roll out the sausage piece sprinkling it with flour making sure it is even in thickness and getting it as round as I can.
  • Take a cooled egg out of the bowl or pot and pat it dry.
  • Roll the cooled egg in some flour.
  • Take your rolled out sausage piece and mold it around your egg making sure your egg is completely covered with sausage.
  • Take your sausage covered egg and roll it in the three beaten eggs.
  • Then roll your sausage covered egg in the bread crumbs.
  • Take your frying pan with approximately 2 inches of oil and place the sausage covered eggs in the oil. Make sure you turn the Scottish Eggs so they won't burn.
  • Fry them for about 8 to 9 minutes.
  • After they are done, drain on paper towels, place them on your favorite platter, and serve with your favorite sauce or golden mustard. YUM!

      Hi vocalcoach, you will enjoy these eggs very much. I make grits to go with mine and fresh squeezed orange juice.

      We used to call them scotch eggs at home, and they were a great favourite. Always bought, though, never home made.
