Appetizers Breakfast Recipes

Baked Scotch Eggs Have you ever had these delicious fried Scotch Eggs at a bar or restaurant? We have a great place in Indianapolis called MacNiven’s, where we first tried this deliciousness. We decided to make a baked version to enjoy at home. Phil makes excellent sauces and dips, so he made up a remoulade to go with these little pieces of heaven. Our problem is that he makes a great sauce, but we never write it down and can’t replicate it! 

This is a pretty easy recipe. Start by dividing the 1 lb of sweet or spicy Italian sausage into 6 balls.  Flatten out each ball so you can wrap it around a hard boiled egg.  Place three shallow bowls in a row and place the flour, whisked eggs, and Panko in each bowl. Roll each sausage egg in the flour, then egg, then Panko and place on a baking sheet lined with foil with a raised cooling rack on top.  Bake at 400 degrees F for 45 minutes.  Mix up the sauce while the eggs are baking.

These make a great appetizer, breakfast, lunch or dinner! This recipe makes 6 eggs, so we usually have at least two leftover to eat the next day. Our 5 year old likes these, dipped in ketchup of course!
