Scotch Eggs

I know we are several months away from St. Patty's Day - but these are just too tasty to only eat once a year.

When you look at the picture, it's a little deceiving... is it a meatball? Is that coated in breadcrumbs? Or just really crisp? My goodness, what's inside?!?

Prepare for a simplistic, culinary delight...

Scotch Eggs

Boiled eggs - cool & peeled
Bread crumbs, optional

Coat and pat the boiled egg with sausage - sealing in all the edges. Completely cover the egg.

If desired, roll in bread crumbs.

Deep or pan fry until crispy and sausage was cooked throughout. I pan fried in a few tablespoons of olive oil.

Serve with spicy mustard.

This recipe is easy to make gluten free and paleo/primal friendly but simply omitting the bread crumbs. The sausage will get nice and crispy enough that you won't miss out on the textures -- crunchy outside, with a soft middle. Yummmmmm...... 

Also, they can be prepared a day in advance and kept refrigerated until you're ready to fry.
