Scotch Eggs

Scotch Eggs


  • 4 hard boiled eggs peeled
  • 1 lb ground breakfast sausage
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup AP flour
  • 1 cup of breadcrumbs regular or Panko


  • Preheat oven or air fryer to 400F.
  • Set up a breading service line by putting the flour, egg, and breadcrumbs in individual bowls.
  • Divide sausage into 4 even pieces and flatten to about 1/4” thick.
  • Pat eggs dry, and dip each into flour, and then wrap with a sausage patty.
  • Dip the wrapped egg & sausage into the beaten egg, and then roll in breadcrumbs.
  • Place on a baking sheet (if baking) or into your air fryer basket.
  • Either bake for 35 minutes, or until the sausage is cooked through; or air fry for 12-15 minutes, flipping halfway through.


Serve with whole grain mustard.
