  • Toast fennel seeds on stove, keeping them moving constantly, until they turn a golden brown color, about 5 minutes. Allow to cool, then grind in spice grinder. Combine with salt, pepper, and parsley in small cup.
  • If grinding your own pork, trim fat from pork and cut into 1" cubes.
  • Combine the blend from Step 1 with the pork. If grinding your own pork, put in freezer for 1 hour before using in meat grinder. If not, then refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place 4 eggs in a pot of cold water that just covers the eggs. Heat until the water achieves a rolling boil. Remove pot from heat immediately, and allow to sit for 8 minutes. Remove eggs from hot water and immerse in ice water. NOTE: 8 minutes give the eggs a soft center. Allow to sit for 10 minutes to hard boil eggs.
  • To peel egg shell, tap the bottom of one egg to crack it. Use a spoon to carefully peel the shell away from the egg while rotating the egg. Repeat for each egg. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • If grinding your own pork, remove pork from the freezer and grind.
  • Divide the sausage into 4 equal portions and flatten into a disc shape. Place the eggs in the center of the discs and carefully wrap the sausage around them, ensuring that there are no openings.
  • Place the breadcrumbs in a bowl. Whisk the remaining egg in another bowl. Roll each sausage wrapped egg in the egg wash to fully coat, then roll in the breadcrumbs until fully coated.
  • Place sausage wrapped eggs on an ungreased cookie sheet and cook for 30 minutes, until the outside turns golden brown.
  • Combine mayonnaise, mustard, and lemon juice to create mustard sauce.
