  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 lb. ground pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Cooking Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Place the eggs in a pot of cold water and bring to a boil. Once the water is boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove the eggs from the pot and transfer them to a bowl of ice water to cool. Once cooled, peel the eggs and set them aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the ground pork sausage, thyme, rosemary, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  • Divide the sausage mixture into six portions.
  • Flatten each portion of sausage mixture into a patty and wrap it around one of the boiled eggs, making sure to completely cover the egg.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs and flour.
  • Roll each sausage-wrapped egg in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to ensure the breadcrumbs stick to the sausage.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Once the oil is hot, carefully place the Scotch eggs in the skillet and cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown and crispy, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Transfer the Scotch eggs to a baking sheet and bake in the oven for an additional 10-12 minutes, until the sausage is cooked through.
  • Let the Scotch eggs cool for a few minutes before serving.
