Hardboiled eggs in a sausage/oatmeal crust

Scotch eggs are great as appetizers, lunches or dinner! I took this recipe from my Mom's collection, but I'm not sure where she got it.


(makes 6)




  1. Preheat oven to
  2. Make the covering: mix all ingredients thoroughly and divide into six portions.
  3. Cover the eggs: uniformly cover each hard boiled egg with its portion of the sausage mixture.
  4. Bread the covered eggs: roll each egg in bread crumbs, then into beaten egg, and once again in bread crumbs.
  5. Set eggs on a cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Turn them over and bake another 15 minutes.
  6. Serve sliced in half.


Scotch eggs are delicious either hot or cold.


Difficulty: moderate.
