Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the pork sausage and Worcestershire sauce. Combine the flour, salt and pepper; mix into the sausage.

  • Divide the sausage into four equal parts. Mold each part around one of the hard-cooked eggs, rolling between your hands to shape. Place the beaten egg and bread crumbs into separate dishes. Dip the balls into the egg, then roll in the bread crumbs until coated. Shake off any excess.

  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan or deep fryer to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C), or until a cube of bread dropped into the oil turns brown in 1 minute. Lower the eggs carefully into the hot oil. Fry for 5 minutes, or until deep golden brown.

Hard-cooked eggs

Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, and peel.

I just made this recipe to try out for a breakfast item for a tailgating football event we are going to. It is awesome! I had the same issue as others where I fried them and then finished them off in the oven at 400 for about a 1/2 hour. I only had panko on hand and that worked great. I also used one pound hot and one pound of regular breakfast sausage to add some kick & doubled the recipe ingredients (except for pepper). Using two pounds of sausage I was able to make 11 scotch eggs. Next time I will probably be able to squeeze out about 14. Read More

Fantastic...just like I remember in an old english pub! I did try to "stretch" the recipe and used 6 egss instead of just the 4--perfectly fine. Thanks for a great addition to my recipe box!! Read More

I had these at a Renaissance Festival. SO wonderful! I was actually craving them days later and found this recipe. The ones I'd had didn't have the bread crumb coating. It makes them taste even better!!! Baking them (turning once) on a broiling pan helps get rid of some of the fats. Spicy brown mustard or sweet jams are good for dipping depending on your personal tastes. Great for brunches. Read More

Love this recipe! I've made a few batches of this for family and friends. In some batches I've used half pork sausage and half turkey sausage and in others I've used all turkey sausage and they both turn out great. I like to add about a 1/2 tsp of garlic powder 1/4 tsp of additional sage and 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes to kick up the flavor of the sausage. It's really easy to boil the eggs and prepare the sausage mixture the night before then put together and broil in the oven the next morning for breakfast. Great recipe thanks UKLAINE! Read More

Thanks for the delicious recipe. These are a great idea for breakfast brunch or even dinner. Since I had maple sausage on hand I used that and omitted the Worstershire sauce. I also browned lightly and then baked them the rest of the way. Served these for Christmas breakfast and they were a big hit with the family. Read More
