    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    The inhabitants of Scotland seem to have a mania for deep fried food; they are notorious for deep frying Mars bars. Scotch Eggs are one of their better efforts in this tradition. However, these are just as good baked and a great deal less greasy.

      FABULOUS! I could only get these at a Renaissance Faire or British Pub, but homemade are DEFINATELY better! I used a tube of Jimmy Dean's breakfast sausage and omitted the other spices, added 1/4 C chopped white onions and 2 raw eggs (to bind the meat). I also used Progresso Garlic & Herb breadcrumbs to add my own "BAM" and LIGHTLY sprayed the outsides of the sausage balls with Olive Oil for "just fried" crispyness. THANK YOU for submitting this!

      Excellent Scotch Eggs! I made a double batch (8 total) with ground pork and with the following changes: omitted salt and used dried sweet basil instead of thyme, didn't use the egg wash or flour, and replaced the bread crumbs with almond meal for gluten free. <br/><br/>These enormous Scotch Eggs were super tasty! I baked mine for 30 minutes at 400 degrees, then turned the oven to Broil/500 degrees and kept an eye on it until I was happy with the browning. Served them with a side of Bacon Kale Stir and a spicy Dijon mustard for the eggs. <br/><br/>Hard Boiling Egg Tip: add at least 1/2 tsp of baking soda to the pot of water when setting the eggs in. Then bring the pot up to boil. Doesn't matter if eggs are new or older, the shells peel away easily! :D

      This is great. I have always deep fried my scotch eggs so this was a great find for me. I love the way the turned out. I used the ground pork and the seasonings are very tasty with it.
