Scotch Eggs on the Egg

This is the first time I've posted a cook. We usually eat late, and my husband might not be too pleased if I held up dinner to take photos and plate carefully. But I made these in the afternoon. Although a bar snack in Britain (and usually deep fried), these are good for breakfast or lunch. Most recipes use a pound of sausage for four eggs, but I didn't want that much meat. 

Use any sausage you like or get something mild and spice to your taste. Divide into six equal portions.

Put six LARGE eggs in a sauce pan, cover with water and boil for 3 minutes. Put in ice water.

Carefully peel the eggs (they are soft boiled and a bit fragile). Smash a portion of the sausage thinly in an oval and enclose the egg. 

Cooked indirect at 350 for an hour on a mini.

    Very cool! Do the eggs end up more "hard boiled like" by the end of the cook?
    They certainly appear that way, for sure something to try though.

  • This prolly explains why my scotch eggs suck.  I hard boil them before encasing them in sausage.

  • In the pubs the yolks are sort of a green brown colour. They do sop up some beer though

    Sounds like a good mixture to me.

    If you soft cook the eggs first, they end up perfectly hard cooked. Just had a slice as I came into the house at 9 p.m. and they are fantastic. Funny how the smoked flavor intensifies over time. Really good.

    Is this considered Egg on Egg crime?

    I am making these for Thanksgiving Breakfast.

    I'm confused... are you taking a bite then dipping like oreos in your beer?  Or spilling beer on your plate and dredging.  Sorry to sound crazy - but I'm trying to picture how this is done.

    That's probably because they cook the piss out of them.  Here's my science guy explanation (stolen from the interwebs) so you can wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat ;)

    "The green ring forms when you overheat the egg, causing hydrogen and sulfur in the egg white to react and form hydrogen sulfide gas. The hydrogen sulfide reacts with iron in the egg yolk to form a grayish-green compound where the white and yolk meet. While the color isn't particularly appetizing, it's fine to eat. You can keep the yolk from turning green by chilling the eggs as soon as they have finished cooking. One way to do this is by running cold water over the hot eggs as soon as the cooking time has elapsed."

    No man, Just meant you could drink a lot of beer while eating them.
