My friend from Scotland gave me this recipe, his favorite tailgate recipe. Now is the season for these. Good at potluck and picnics too.

1Shell the eggs and dry with paper towels. Mix the flour, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Roll the eggs in flour mixture. With hands, mold 3 ounces of sausage around each egg, coating evenly.
