“Here is an old family recipe for this hearty egg and sausage dish. This dish is high in fat so it's best if eaten only as a special treat”

excellent!! I baked mine though to cut down on the fat



I love scotch eggs! I only gave this four stars because I changed it a bit--only needed one egg, beaten, to dip the sausage/egg balls in, and I only needed 1 cup bread crumbs. I also baked them instead of frying. But they're yummy!



Oven bake is key! I didnt fry mine. I added some dried oregano mix to the sausage and it turned out great!
