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.

These are great. I love the flavour of cloves. I used Gluten free ingredients such as gluten free flour and rice crumbs instead of bread flour. It was so much nicer than fried sotch eggs. Other than the gluten free changes, I stuck to the recipe. It will be a keeper.

These are AWESOME! I used Jimmy Dean Sage sausage (instead of making n seasoning it as the ingredients stated) and followed the cooking method exactly. I will be making these very often! YUM!!!!

My kids thought these were "fun" and have requested them again. I made them to go with our french toast and we all enjoyed them very much. Thank you for sharing this with us, I had never heard of them before.

Jan-09 These turned out nicely. I didn't use the same spices as listed because I used sausages that were sitting in my freezer (they had their own spices). I think I may have cooked the eggs too long because the yolks were crumbly when I cut the scotch egg in half. They were delicious and I will make them again. Sept 09 - I made these again a few weeks ago. This time I used the gr. pork and used poultry seasoning, chili powder, and s&p for the spices. The eggs were better this time as I didn't boil them for as long so the yolks weren't crumbly.

These were great! I used breakfast sausage with the spices added, and both my boyfriend and I enjoyed them.
