My mum is a wonderful cook and we were raised in Europe eating wonderful foods. Because we traveled so much (courtesy of Uncle Sam) we learned to appreciate different cultures and great diversity in our menus. This is one of her recipes from her home country of England. Because it is extremely "fatty" we don't make it much, but it is oh so good and my husband and eldest son can't get enough of them.
1Moisten hard boiled egg and then roll in flour. Divide sausage into six portions. Mold sausage meat around the egg. Cover with beaten egg/milk mixture and then roll in bread crumbs. Heat fat in deep fryer or deep pot. Fry in hot fat until golden brown, about 7-8 minutes. Make sure sausage is thoroughly cooked. Serve whole or cut in half.
2If you want a spicier Scotch egg use spicier sausage. These are great served for a brunch warm and covered with a cheese sauce or cold for a party.
