Scotch Eggs

Easy and fun to make, these are great hot or cold. Eat whole for brunch or lunch, or cut into wedges for hors d’oeuvres.


1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
1 pound best-quality bulk sausage
4 medium-size, hardboiled eggs, peeled


Mix bread crumbs with beaten egg and sausage. Divide into 4 portions. Press each portion around an egg. (It will appear that you have 4 small, meaty tennis balls.) Place them on a rack in a pan and bake at 350 degrees F for about 40 minutes, until sausage is cooked.

I left out the bread crumbs

I left out the bread crumbs and put in finely minced onion and a little garlic -- very good!
