When you make Scotch eggs in your air fryer, you get all the deliciousness without the mess and added fat of deep frying. They make the perfect breakfast or snack, especially when served with the chutney dipping sauce. Cook the eggs to your liking; either hard-boiled or slightly soft, you can't go wrong. You can find mango chutney in the Indian section of your grocery store.

  • Divide pork sausage into 6 even portions. Flatten each portion into a thin patty. Place one egg in the middle and wrap the sausage around the eggs, sealing all sides. Set eggs aside on a plate.

  • Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Place flour into a small bowl and beaten eggs into another small bowl. Place panko bread crumbs onto a plate. Dip each sausage-wrapped egg into flour, then dip into beaten egg, letting the excess drip off. Roll in bread crumbs and place onto a plate.

  • Spray basket of the air fryer with cooking spray and place eggs into the basket. Do not overcrowd; cook in batches if necessary. Cook for 12 minutes, turning eggs over halfway through. Repeat with remaining eggs. Serve with dipping sauce.

Cook's Note:

If you prefer a smoother dipping sauce, use a mini food processor and blend. If you like a lot of sauce, make a double batch.

These were delicious will definitely make again. There's nothing difficult here just time consuming. The eggs I used were a bit too fresh so they didn't peel very well and I lost one in the process (I ate it!). But using five eggs worked out perfectly with the amount of sausage called for. It's a must to use Jimmy Dean regular sausage don't cheap out and use anything else! Read More

Absolutely loved these! Only changes I made were leaving out the flour and using crushed pork rinds instead of panko so they would be low carb and gluten free. I didn’t try the sauce because I’m cutting out sugar, but the eggs themselves were heavenly! Read More

This was crazy good! I did spray each egg lightly with cooking spray to make sure they were nice and brown and crunchy. Also used a different sauce with honey and mustard, but the recipe is spot on! My wife gave it a two enthusiastic thumbs up. Will be a regular breakfast treat in our house going forward. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I made this for dinner tonight. I used hot sausage and omitted the spices from the chutney sauce. They came out very well and tasted great! Read More

These are very good. I used a mixture of regular pork sausage and smoked pork sausage and it was terrific. I almost didn't make the chutney dip as we all like the mustard so much with these. But I did and it was also delicious. I made triple amount of the dip and it was all gone as people were dipping everything in it. The eggs came out of the air fryer crunchy just as if they had been fried. Definitely a keeper! Read More

Best scotch eggs ever! These are crispy yet still moist. 1 thing I did differently was spray them on all sides with cooking spray. And because they aren t deep fried the flavor of the egg and sausage really come through. Thanks for this! Read More
