Craving a unique savory breakfast? Make Scotch Eggs!
Scotch Eggs are a breaded brunch favorite featuring hardboiled eggs wrapped in sausage. They’re often deep-fried, but to keep the mess to a minimum, I chose to bake them and the crunch of the coating did not suffer whatsoever!
My family loves to dip Scotch Eggs in an easy maple mustard sauce, and I always throw on a little chopped Italian parsley for color and presentation. The sauce is sweet, tangy and delicious. Don’t skip it!
Make a batch of Scotch Eggs for the week, or bring them your upcoming Easter gatherings.
