Scots Eggs

These are a special occasion treat that speaks to our Scottish ancestors on both sides of our families. My husband would like me to make them every week to take with him to work, but they can also be cut into quarters, and used as appetizers. I have tried using ground turkey breakfast sausage, but it made it difficult to keep wrapped around the eggs...just a word of warning, but I did lighten them up a bit with less salt & fat and do not deep fry them as the original recipe called to do.
