    Yep, reheat them in a microwave. I slice them in slices for easy heating. I have also sliced them in half cut side down on a cookie sheet and put them in the oven. I have served them with a cream sauce and also sliced them for on an English muffin. It just depends on where we are and what is available. ;;)

  • Jim, I did cut mine Into quarters and halves. They didn't all look great but people loved them. We didn't use syrup but that would be an interesting way to go.

    Update! Apparently I threw away my bracket. I checked my box (ba-zing, @caleracefan) and it wasn't there.

    I made a batch of scotch eggs using the above method. At 250, it took almost 2.5 hours to get up to temp. I don't wield a thermapen yet, so that could be the issue. Upon tasting them, they were a bit more done than I expected. Outside of the cooking time, these were dynamite! My co-workers loved them. This will definitely be a standby recipe!

    I believe a young man served this up at the Salado Egg Fest this year. The first time I had ever had one. I am a hard boiled egg junkie. These were great!

    He had cut them in half if I remember correctly. Mickey may remember.

    You have officially ruined every other morning tailgate idea.

    Thanks, but I am not going to take the "blame" for that one. There are so many equally fun things for breakfast. I was amazed at some of the creative dishes people turned out the NewEgglandFest for breakfast. Besides if you go by Naked Whiz, it is not traditionally a breakfast food in it's native England. So use that as an excuse to still make other things for breakfast.

    You know that gave me a great idea: Why doesn't someone write a cookbook that focuses on cool breakfast dishes you can make on the Egg? I'll even suggest a possible title: Egg for Breakfast. No charge to use the title, just send me a copy of the finished book.

    I substituted ground Italian Sweet Sausage when I made these. But the original recipe called for you to buy 2 lbs. of Italian Sweet Sausage (cased) and to slit them open and remove the meat. You then form the meat into patties before using the 1/4" thick patties to wrap around the medium boiled eggs.

    And I'd never dream of calling you stupid.

    I've done it that way before, using Owen's breakfast sausage, or Jimmy Dean's. Can't member which one. Works fine.

    You own a BGE so no one is gonna tell me you are stupid. Good luck to you and anyone else trying these out. I think you're in for a treat.

    Thanks for the recipe.  I tried these out this weekend and they were awesome.  I will be making these again for sure.

    Glad you liked it @Eggdam. I am curious, did you use the maple syrup in the meat mixture or as a topping?
