Breakfast Scotch Eggs

Scotch eggs are not only tasty, but they are also super easy to make.


  • 1 lb ground breakfast sausage (preferably from pastured pork)
  • 8 hard-boiled pastured eggs, peeled


1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

2. Divide the meat into 8 equal portions.

3. Using your hands, form the meat around each egg.

4. Place on a Silpat lined baking sheet so they don't stick.

5. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

6. Enjoy! I like mine with a little drizzle of real maple syrup or some gluten-free mustard!

  1. Very clever idea. I never thought of baking them. It makes it much easier and more doable. Personally, I might cut the eggs in half before surrounding them with the sausage meat. It would make them less likely to roll around & sometimes I prefer smaller portions as an option.

  2. I dip my bantam scotch eggs in beaten egg and cover with breadcrumbs before baking for 18 minutes to get a perfect runny yoke!
