HOW DO YOU MAKE SCOTCH EGGS?
Scotch Eggs are an easy appetizer that you can make at home. You first start out with some hard boiled eggs. Then you  wrap them in some pork sausage which is then breaded in a mixture of flour, egg and breadcrumbs. You can deep fry them or bake them, but we love to deep fry our version of this recipe.

WHAT SAUCE DO YOU SERVE WITH SCOTCH EGGS?
Now this is a question that is highly debatable and everyone’s preference are completely different. We served ours with a side of honey mustard. Yes, you heard that right honey mustard! We love the sweet and tangy flavor that it gives with the salty flavor from the sausage.

Traditionally you would serve some sort of mustard sauce with this, a German mustard would be good, a creamy mustard mixed with mayo and lemon juice is also a good option. But the possibilities are endless and I say play around with different dipping sauce to find which one you like the best.

DO YOU EAT SCOTCH EGGS HOT OR COLD?
This is entirely up to you, in the UK they serve then cold. We had them right out of the deep fryer and prefer them warm, but we also at them after they cooled off for a bit and they were equally tasty.

  1. I am going to try this recipe soon. I recently tried a Scotch Egg at an Irish pub in Portland, Oregon and I fell in love. This recipe looks easy to make too. Thanks for posting!

  2. Looking forward to trying this recipe. I do not have a deep fryer, but I really would like to try to bake them. Just need the specifics.

    1. Hi Gail! I actually wrote the baking instructions in the blog post itself as an alternative way to cook but you just preheat to 400 and bake for about 35 minutes until internal temp of about 160! I hope that helps and I hope you love them!
