  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Pour milk into a shallow dish; empty the packet of seasoned coating into a large plastic zipper bag. Divide the pork sausage into 6 equal portions, and cover each egg completely with a layer of sausage. Roll the sausage and egg balls in the milk, and place in the plastic bag. Seal the bag, and gently shake until balls are covered with seasoned coating. Place the coated sausage and egg balls onto a rack over a baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and slightly crisp, about 30 minutes.

Scotch eggs - baked not fried! These will be great for Easter morning. I had just under 1 lb of sausage and it cover 4 large eggs. For Easter I will buy small eggs. (make sure to age them so...

I haven't tried it yet, but I certainly intend to. This sounds like a great way to simulate 'scotch eggs' that I can find only at our local renaissance fair. And no deep frying necessary! BTW,...

We've never had anything like this before, but we all LOVED them! I used a 1# roll of Italian sausage and had no problem covering 6 large eggs. I cut the sausage into 6 pcs. and flattened each p...

These were delicious prepared and cooked exactly as written. I also made them using egg/water and then seasoned bread crumbs. Both ways were fantastic. I served them over wilted spinach and t...

What a wonderful discovery. I have had Scotch eggs in pubs but the idea of frying these in oil left me hesitant to make these as a rgular treat at home. This recipe is terrific and I have made i...

Used "hot" sausage and mixed up some Shake and Bake Mixture from this site. These were not even remotely bland, rather, loaded with flavor. Been a long time since I've made scotch eggs, and th...

Stumbled upon this wonderful recipe; just like the scotch eggs hubby and I used to order in a local "British" pub that has since closed. By accident I had the ingredients on had this morning for...

I followed the recipe to the letter. I thought they must be mistaken that a whole pound of sausage only covers 6 eggs, but that was right on! My husband loved these and even my two year old ate ...

I don't think I'll eat eggs any other way, ever.
