Don’t Wait for a Renaissance Faire for Scotch Eggs

If you’ve ever been to a Renaissance Faire, you’ve seen or eaten a staple treat: Scotch Eggs.  These delectable finger foods are too tasty to wait for the Faire for though.  Savory sausage is wrapped around a delicate hard cooked egg, then breaded and deep fried to golden goodness.  They are a high protein addition to a simple meal of salad and bread.

The Sausage Makes Scotch Eggs Fabulous

As in any recipe, the ingredients individually should be something you would love to eat.  If you purchase a sausage brand that you don’t like, you aren’t going to like the Scotch Eggs.  Get something that you like to eat for breakfast, or put in your pasta sauce.  If you like it on its own, you are going to love it wrapped around an egg and deep fried.  Personally, I love to mix an Italian and a spicy sausage to give my Scotch Eggs a little bit of bite.

Hard Cooking Eggs for Scotch Eggs

I’m all for work smarter, not harder, and I hate hard boiling eggs.  It takes so much time, and they are so touchy.  I’ve found they turn out perfect every time if you bake them.  Yes, you read that right!  Place cold eggs in a cold oven, directly on the rack.  Put a cookie sheet underneath, and turn the oven to 325 degrees F.  Start the timer for 30 minutes when you turn the oven on.  When it is done, put the eggs in cold water for 5 minutes and you will have perfect eggs that are easy to peel once they are completely cold.
