Scotch Egg

An interesting take on the hard boiled egg. It looks scrumptious and the recipe is very straightforward. Now this will be great for a Sunday morning breakfast.

A hardboiled egg encased in sausage meat, rolled in breadcrumbs and then fried... fried.... fried.

6 hard-boiled eggs, well chilled (i try to cook them to just past soft boiled stage, then stick them in the coldest part of the fridge to firm up)
1 pound good quality sausage meat (i used ground turkey meat, seasoned with sage, white pepper, salt and a tiny bit of maple syrup)
1/2 cup AP flour
1-2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup panko-style bread crumbs
Vegetable oil for frying

Peel eggs and divide sausage into 6 portions.
Roll each egg in flour then press and shape a portion of the sausage around each egg.
dip sausage-wrapped eggs into beaten egg and roll in panko.
Heat oil to 350˚F .
Cook each egg for 4-5 minutes (4-5 min on each side if shallow frying) or until sausage is cooked and browned.
