Baked Scotch Eggs

Baked Scotch Eggs

Are you looking to get rid of some of those hard-boiled eggs without having to eat a Chef Salad? Check out Scotch Eggs! Originally hailing from England, Scotch Eggs are fantastically savory with a little crunch. A Scotch Egg is comprised of three parts: 1 hard-boiled egg, a layer of pork sausage, and a layer of panko crumbs. We serve ours with honey mustard, but you can use whatever sauce inspires you! Enjoy!

Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes (or until sausage tests above 160 degrees F)
Servings: 4 adults


  • (1 lbs) Ground Pork Sausage
  • (1/2 Tbsp) Dried Minced Garlic
  • (1/2 Tbsp) Thyme (Dried)
  • (1 Tbsp) Flour
  • (3/4 Cup) Panko Crumbs
  • (4) Hard boiled eggs (Peeled)
  • (1) Raw Egg
  • (1/4 cup) Heavy Cream or Milk


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F, and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Peel four hard-boiled eggs, set aside.
  3. Mix Ground Pork Sausage, garlic, thyme, and flour together, set aside. 
  4. Crack one raw egg into a bowl, add heavy cream or milk, then whisk til combined. 
  5. Put Panko crumbs into yet another bowl. 
  6. Split the sausage mixture into four even servings. 
  7. Take one, flatten to a patty shape then wrap the patty around one of the peeled eggs until no white from the egg is visible and the meat is evenly distributed. 
  8. Roll the sausage-encased egg in the egg/milk wash then roll it in panko crumbs and place it on the parchment-lined baking sheet. 
  9. Repeat steps 7 & 8 until all four eggs are on the parchment-lined baking sheet. 
  10. Place the eggs into the fully heated oven for 20-minutes. Check the temperature of the external Sausage. Pull the Scotch Eggs out of the oven when the Sausage reads 160°F.

Serve with Honey Mustard or Horseradish Sauce!
