Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the pork sausage and Worcestershire sauce. Combine the flour, salt and pepper; mix into the sausage.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

I mix half sausage and half turkey together and it's not as greasy. After covering the egg i roll it in crushed pecans and bake them at 325 for 40-45 min. yummy!

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!!

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.
