A photo and recipe from flickr for hard boiled eggs that are wrapped with sausage and then fried. This sounds crazy. (HT: Gorilla Mask)

Scotch Egg Recipe

6 hard-boiled eggs, well chilled (i try to cook them to just past soft boiled stage, then stick them in the coldest part of the fridge to firm up)
1 pound good quality sausage meat (i used ground turkey meat, seasoned with sage, white pepper, salt and a tiny bit of maple syrup)
1/2 cup AP flour
1-2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup panko-style bread crumbs
Vegetable oil for frying

peel eggs; divide sausage into 6 portions.
roll each egg in flour then press and shape a portion of the sausage around each egg.
dip sausage-wrapped eggs into beaten egg and roll in panko.
heat oil to 350˚F .
cook each egg for 4-5 minutes (longer if shallow frying–constantly turn the eggs around for best results) or until sausage is cooked and browned.

Can be served cold

That looks so incredibly disgusting that it has to be AMAZING! I know what I’m making the next time I have a hang over!

I made these over the weekend: they turned out pretty good! :) the leftovers didn’t taste too horrible when I warmed them up in the oven the next day, but I would highly suggest serving immediately/make enough for the day, as that’s when they tasted the best.
