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.

  5. Set the eggs on a lined baking sheet. Bake 35-40 minutes until golden brown.
