Oh I wish I could give this more than 5 stars - maybe GOLD stars!! I have heard of Scotch eggs but really never knew what they were until know. I had so much fun making these and they taste great. I used a spicy bulk sausage and followed your directions exactly. It was easy and fun to make, tasted great, looked better and DH was very impressed and has requested I make them again. A win-win all the way around. I'm thinking this could be a very impressive, easy to prepare ahead breakfast for company too. Served with hot coffee and buttered toast on the side. Very filling. Thanks so much for posting. Made for Family Favs of ZWT6 for the Mischief Makers and this is certainly going to be a Family Fav from now on.

My mother always made Scotch eggs, so I was eager to try this recipe. The rosemary, Dijon and sherry were unique ingredients; however, they were not really discernible in the finished dish. For the dry breadcrumbs, I used a combination of plain and seasoned. These eggs were very tasty, as well as being very versatile. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT6.

I've made a few scotch eggs, always gluten and dairy free though - and I've never had the grey ring these pictures show around the yolks. For the best outcome, don't quite 'hard boil' the egg completely. The eggs will continue to cook whilst baking, therefore don't need to be completely cooked through when boiling. For my scotch eggs, I par-boil the eggs. This ensures that while cooling in their shells (and still cooking as they begin to cool), that when it comes time to roll them out of the shell that they are workable (not sloppy, but a whole 'boiled' egg). My reason? I'm about to cook them again - coated in something from either the surf or turf.
