Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 pound ground sausage
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. Place the eggs in a saucepan and fill with enough water to cover the eggs. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 8 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water to cool.

  3. Peel the eggs and set aside.

  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground sausage, bread crumbs, salt, black pepper, paprika, and dried parsley flakes. Mix until well combined.

  5. Divide the sausage mixture into 4 equal portions and flatten each portion into a disc shape. Place one peeled egg in the center of each disc and wrap the sausage mixture around the egg, sealing it completely.

  6. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the scotch eggs and fry until golden brown, about 5-6 minutes.

  7. Transfer the cooked scotch eggs to a baking sheet lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.

  8. Place the scotch eggs on a baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes to ensure the sausage is cooked through.

  9. Serve scotch eggs warm with your favorite dipping sauce.
