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 a hearty Saturday morning brunch...or so I thought. I had purchased Jimmy Dean hot pork sausage to make sausage balls next weekend for an adult Halloween party, but at a gathering last night I overheard the hostess saying she was making meatballs, so "Scotch Eggs" was a good use of pork sausage that I rarely buy. I don't typically buy Shake and Bake either, but had seen a recipe here for homemade, then discovered I had no breadcrumbs, or celery salt and nearly no Panko. I toasted some sliced sourdough bread, combined it with the little bit of Panko crumbs I had, seasoned it following the Shake and Bake recipe, and added some ground red pepper, ground coriander, poultry seasoning and extra garlic powder for more flavor. I used 4 left-over extra large hard-boiled eggs I had cooked earlier in the week for deviled eggs, and the whole pound of sausage. I had no problems molding the sausage to the eggs, but I did make sure the eggs were dry as another reviewer suggested, and I used an egg to dip into instead of milk. The baking time was perfect and my husband must have said how much he loved these six times during the meal and again while doing dishes. I over-did the red pepper for my taste, but he loves spicy-hot food, so he said not to change a thing and to make them again.
