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.
- 6 hard-boiled eggs, well-chilled
- 1 lb sausage meat
- 2 tablespoons minced parsley
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground sage
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 cup flour
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1⁄2-3⁄4 cup breadcrumbs
- vegetable oil (for frying)
Directions See How It's Made
- Peel hard-cooked eggs.
- Make sure the eggs are well-chilled so that the sausage meat will cling to them more easily.
- Combine sausage, parsley, sage, and pepper in large bowl; mix well.
- Press meat mixture evenly around eggs, keeping the oval shape.
- Sprinkle eggs with flour, coating lightly all over.
- Dip into beaten egg; then roll in bread crumbs to coat.
- Pour oil into deep-fryer, or large heavy saucepan, to fill 1/2 full.
- Heat to 350 on deep-fat frying thermometer.
- Cook 1 egg at a time, for about 4-5 minutes until meat is well-browned.
- Drain on paper towels; cool.
- Slice to serve.
