Scotch Eggs

Maven felt sorry for us and mailed in this scrumptious recipe. Thanks Maven!

My recipe I am submitting herein the comments is for Scotch eggs.

1 Tube Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage
5 Hard boiled eggs
bread crumbs

1. Peel cooled hard boiled eggs.
2. Separate sausage into five even sections.
3. Take one section of sausage and form into a ball. Press hard boiled egg into center, and press and mold sausage until it coats entire outside of egg. Repeat for remainder of eggs.
4. Roll all of eggs in seasoned breadcrumbs.

Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for abourt 45 minutes.

These can be served hot, sliced over buttered toast.

Good eatin'!!

Yes, this sounds like some good eatin to me too. Makes me hungry contemplating it!

A woman I worked with used to make Scotch eggs for pot lucks at work. The only difference is that she used to slice the eggs in half, take of the yokes, mash the yokes and add so much pepper that the yokes would look almost black, then she would spoon the yokes back into the egg, and wrap it in sausage and deep fry them. They were tasty, but you really had to like pepper!

I find that rolling them in breadcrumbs and baking them off makes them just crisp enough, and lets the grease render out while baking, and doesn't leave you with that "lead ball" in the belly sensation:)

i'm trying them as soon as i get a new oven, a while back i tried to preheated my oven for about ten minutes and when i started to get sick and light headed i opened the oven door and it was still cold, something must be wrong so i opened the front door and aired out the house and i never could get it to work so now i guess that's one more large apliance i need to aquire, soon i'll have a whole new house. anyway the scotch eggs sounds good and simple.

Chuck, you could make these in a toaster oven. I do that myself rather than heat up the range, and it works fine. In fact, you can do a lot of things in a toaster oven that you can do in a traditional oven, only in smaller quantities. I've baked cakes and Irish Soda bread, broiled ribs and steaks... you name it. I've got one that is big enough to toast up 6 slices at a time, and has a rack. It's great. Black and Decker makes a great one and usually they market these for college kids, but I highly recommend them, and it's a considerably smaller investment than a big-ass stove right here and right now.

maven - i have a black and decker toaster oven and it will do about 3 slices of toast at a time, i've about worn it out, i have trouble finding pans that will fit in it but it works pretty well when you get used to it. you've put a thought in my mind though, i may go looking for a bigger one. thanks.

I highly recommend it. When I was single and living in a studio without a stove or oven, it really was a god send!
