You know what I love about scotch eggs? (Besides their ease, simplicity, convenience and delicious flavor?) Even hard boiled eggs this ugly:
And it's way, way, ridiculously simple.
We own a Butterball electric turkey fryer. If you've ever wanted to try frying a turkey, but were scared of oil fires, this is the unit to buy. Really. Every so often, we like to fry up something other than a turkey though. And when it's out, I do many things, because it's just easier that way. Tonight, I made a deep fried chicken, with sweet potato fries, and I experimented with frying some brussels sprouts (I broiled the rest, as usual). While it was out, I made these breakfast balls of awesome, too.
First, you need the boiled eggs. I use this recipe by Alton Brown, Because Alton Brown is amazing (I don't care if you disagree). But any method works.
Finally, you need breadcrumbs. Seasoned or not, your choice, style doesn't matter. I like the crunch of panko.
Now take a small ball of sausage, and sort of make a dip in it.
Roll it around in the bread crumbs until coated.
Drop them in your briskly rolling oil (I heat my machine to 375 Fahrenheit).
Fry for about 5 min or so.
They should look like this:
Let cool for a bit, then tuck in! They're great the next day, too. Reheat in the toaster oven, or eat cold.
