Scotch Eggs

This is the simplest recipe and one of my families favorites. Make these for breakfast this weekend.

Buy a roll of your favorite brand of sage sausage. Hard boil 6 eggs. Divide the sausage into 6 pieces. Flatten each piece out and mold it around a peeled hard boiled egg. Notice I pointed out that you actually should peel the egg. Just sayin'!

Roll each one in breadcrumbs. I used panko.

Bake them in a 375 degree oven for about 30-40 minutes until the sausage is cooked through. Let them sit for about 15 minutes and then cut them in half and serve. Some people deep fry them but I think they taste better baked. You can also make these with hot sausage and serve them with some marinara sauce.

If you want to make these as appetizers, use quail eggs!
