If I’m the only one eating it, I’m perfectly happy having sausage and eggs sitting next to each other. If you want a nice presentation, though, this does look pretty cool and isn’t all that hard to do.
- hard-boiled eggs (peeled)
- 1 lb
- bulk sausage
- panko bread crumbs
- raw egg
- salt and pepper
- fat for deep-frying (tallow, lard, olive oil, etc.)
How to Make Scotch Eggs
- 2Season some bread crumbs with salt and pepper.
If you’ve never tried them, panko crumbs have a lighter, airier texture that doesn’t absorb as much grease as regular bread crumbs, leading to a crispier finish. You might find them in the Asian foods section if there aren’t any with the regular bread crumbs.
- 3Beat the raw egg with a tablespoon of water.
Bring your fat up to its recommended frying temperature. If you don’t know what that is, check out this handy cooking oil chart at Clove Garden,
