Scotch Eggs

edited February 2012 in EggHead Forum
This was yesterdays breakfast.

I have seen a number of posts about Scotch Eggs so I thought I would give them a shot.

1) Boiled the eggs / allowed to cool
2) Wrapped in saugage
3) Floured, egg washed, rolled in panko bread cumbs
4) Indirect at 500* for roughly 25-30 mins. 

Very tasty.  They will become part of the rotation.  I am compiling a list of variations I want to try.

    Wow, they look awesome! I need to try that soon. What kind of sausage did you use??
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....
  • I do SEggs from time to time.  I let the eggs cool overnight before removing the shell, then wrap in sausage, then take 2 strips of thick cut bacon and wrap egg/sausage.   Sprinkle with some sort of pork rub on the outside...indirect or smoke at 250-300 for an hour then a quick hit at higher temp to crisp the bacon a bit.

    @cazzy I used Jimmy Dean's "sage" breakfast sausage.

  • I was also inspired by the recent talk, plus a friend of mine coincidentally made some Scotch eggs at his non-Egg enabled house and I had to show him up. :)

    I used a mix of 50/50 ground beef (seasoned with Butt Rub) and chorizo for the meat, because I don't like breakfast sausage. They were definitely nontraditional, but they were pretty good. I cooked them at about 400F on a raised direct grid. Next time I will try indirect.

    Nicely done, Smak. I thought about doing the whole breading thing when I did mine, but opted to go the naked route. I need to try them that way.

  • Here is a link to a pic of the bacon wrapped on my CharGriller.


    If you really want to kick it up...start to make your own sausage at home and use that for SEggs.
