This is a post in response to a request. I do remember my mom making these once though and think these would be a wonderful addition to a brunch or a Scottish-themed meal!(prep/cook time does not include time to hard-cook eggs)

I got a very similar recipe from a co-worker. This is great if you are on a high protein, low carb diet and is very easy to make. I made this with maple flavored sausage and omitted the spices. I first divided the meat into 6 portions, so there was enough to cover all the eggs. You can also dip them in crushed crackers or corn flakes for a crispier coating. Since I like to be lower fat, I baked these at 350 for 45 minutes instead of deep frying. To reheat, microwave for 30 seconds or less.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel hard-cooked eggs.
  2. Make sure the eggs are well-chilled so that the sausage meat will cling to them more easily.
  3. Combine sausage, parsley, sage, and pepper in large bowl; mix well.
  4. Press meat mixture evenly around eggs, keeping the oval shape.
  5. Sprinkle eggs with flour, coating lightly all over.
  6. Dip into beaten egg; then roll in bread crumbs to coat.
  7. Pour oil into deep-fryer, or large heavy saucepan, to fill 1/2 full.
  8. Heat to 350 on deep-fat frying thermometer.
  9. Cook 1 egg at a time, for about 4-5 minutes until meat is well-browned.
  10. Drain on paper towels; cool.
  11. Refrigerate.
  12. Slice to serve.
