Air Fryer Scotch Eggs

Rated as 4.77 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Combine yogurt, chutney, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, curry powder, and cayenne in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. 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.
  3. Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

Used Rice Chex for the bread crumb since I need gluten free, but this was fantastic! Easy to make and delicious!

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 p...

The eggs turned out good - the dipping sauce was a little sweet for me.

I did these in 2 batches; first batch per the recipe. 2nd batch without the breading. 2nd batch turned out much better. I also used turkey breakfast sausage as we don't eat pork. Very tasty!

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. Bu...

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 ...

These were amazing!

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!

Not as difficult to make as I thought it would be. The breading stayed on really well. I fried it into batches in the air fryer. The outside was nice and crispy. I served it with English muffin...
