Scotch Eggs 

I’ve always called these Scotch Balls and I keep getting corrected (even though I obviously know the proper name)… So Scotch Eggs it is!!! I don’t use breading and I don’t fry them.  I just think they taste better without all the extra carbs and fat. 

Scotch Eggs 

6 hard boiled eggs 

1 1/2 pounds pork breakfast sausage 

2 tablespoons oil 

  • Place 6 eggs in pot, fill with water about 1/2 inch above the eggs. 
  • Set on high and bring to boil.
  • As soon as it boils set a 1 minute timer.  
  • When timer goes off turn heat off and set a 5 minute timer. 
  • Leave eggs in water for the duration of 5 minutes. After 5 minutes rinse with cook water and peel.  
  • Make a log out of the pork sausage and divide into 6 even pieces. 
  • Wrap the sausage around the hard boiled eggs.  
  • Arrange the Scotch Eggs in pan or Cast Iron Skillet.  
  • Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 350. Drain liquid and drizzle oil over Scotch Eggs. 
  • Uncover and raise heat to 400 and bake an additional 5-10 minutes until golden brown.
