Scotch Eggs

This recipe can be doubled or tripled, if needed.

5 hard boiled eggs, cooled and peeled
1 lb loose breakfast sausage
1 cup bread crumbs
Preheat oven 400 degrees

Straightforward Preparations:
  1. Make 5 patties out of the sausage.
  2. In the center of each patty, place a hard boiled egg. Enrobe/wrap the sausage around the egg, forming a big meatball.
  3. Roll in bread crumbs.
  4. Bake (if you have a rack or raised broiler pan use it so the rendered fat can run off) for roughly 40 minutes.
Traditionally these are served COLD. Personally I'd prefer to serve them hot, and sliced over buttered toast or buttered, toasted soda bread, with plenty of salt and pepper.

Rats! I was hoping this recipe actually involved Scotch. I love Scotch with my breakfast, doubled and tripled even.
