Making scotch eggs is really not as hard as some may think and makes such a great dish for either breakfast or any other part of the day. They can be a great picnic dish or party snack as well. Can be made in various sizes using either chicken eggs or smaller quail eggs. The classic scotch eggs are deep fried but baking them makes them a bit healthier and they turn out really well.

For this dish it is very important to use a good quality sausage meat as is one of the main ingredients. I have coated the scotch eggs with both bread crumbs and cornflakes and I really enjoyed the cornflakes ones. Feel free to choose the coating that you best like. They look and taste amazing and are best served warm with your favorite dipping sauce, pickles or cheese.

    This looks really delicious. I do it slightly different though.
    I freeze the eggs the day before and then peel them and wrap them in the meat.
    That way they will cook in the oven and the flavors of the meat and eggs will mingle during cooking.
