Daytime Kitchen: Scotch Eggs

Mary Rappaport shows us how to make Scotch Eggs

ROANOKE – Mary Rappaport, from the Virginia Egg Council, stops by to talk about her busy Easter and share a delicious recipe for Scotch Eggs.

Served in Scottish pubs, along with ale, whiskey, etc., these make wonderful appetizers and are great while watching a ballgame, but make even better breakfast/brunch fare.  They are especially nice when made ahead and reheated, as a grab and go meal.

8 Hard-boiled eggs, peeled
1 lb. Uncooked pork, turkey or Italian sausage, cut into 8 patties
1 egg, beaten
1 cup (baked cheese/rice/Ritz) cracker or bread crumbs
Mustard Sauce
¼ cup reduced fat mayonnaise
2 T. Dijon mustard

· Preheat oven to 425°F. 
· Flatten each sausage patty on your palm, then wrap around a hard-boiled egg.   Press edges to seal.
· Dip sausage covered eggs in beaten egg then roll in cracker crumbs.  Place on baking sheet.
· Bake for 10 minutes at 425°, then reduce heat to 375° and bake additional 20 minutes.
· Combine mayo and mustard to make Mustard Sauce and serve with hot Scotch Eggs.
· Scotch eggs may be baked, cooled, refrigerated and 'crisped' up in a 350° oven for 10 min. for later enjoyment.
· Serve whole or cut in half in cupcake papers or cut into quarters, on toothpicks.
Makes 8 servings
