Scotch Eggs with a Southern Twist

  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Print


  • 7 eggs
  • 1 lb ground Jimmy Dean sausage
  • Panko Bread Crumbs
  • Flour
  • Tony Chachere’s Cajun Spices
  • Peanut Oil
  • Jacobsen Chili Salt
  • Dan Pastorini’s Garlic and Herb Seasonings
  • Good Stuff Seasonings
  • parchment paper
  • See Note 1 for a secondary flavoring option


    1. Hard Boil 5 eggs. (See Note 2 for instant pot directions)
    2. Peel the eggs and roll in flour. Just a quick dry roll. Don’t use egg wash not wet the egg first.
    3. Separate the sausage into 5 equal parts. Flatten the meat on parchment paper. Cover egg with meat. Wrap the meat around one egg. Make sure the egg doesn’t show. The entire egg needs to be covered.
    4. Pour some Panko bread crumps in a bowl, add Tony Chachere’s, Dan Pastorini’s, Good Stuff and mix. Season to taste. (See Note 1).
    5. Crack 2 eggs into a bowl, beat them, and add a pinch of Jacobsen Chili Salt.
    6. Roll egg in Panko bread crumbs, then egg wash, then Panko bread crumbs for a second time. Place them in a frying basket.
    7. Heat a big pot of Peanut Oil.
    8. When oil is hot put basket with eggs in basket. Make sure all eggs are covered. Fry until the sausage is golden brown and meat it cooked all the way through. This took Nonna about 9-10 mins. You should check the meat around 8 mins.
    9. When meat is cooked through, let the eggs cool and serve.

Note 1: There are many ways to cook these eggs. You could use Italian ground sausage and Italian spices. Nonna used Parmesan Herb Panko bread crumbs with almost no additional flavoring and ground Italian ground sausage. However, you could use any flavor bread crumbs or spice mix you want!

Note 2: Nonna hard boiled the eggs in the instant pot (R2D2). You’ll need egg racks (just search the internet to find the right type and size) and 1 cup of water. Place eggs on the rack and into the instant pot. Add 1 cup water and cover. Nonna placed R2D2 in manual and set the timer for 5 mins. She manually released the pressure when the timer ended and cooled the eggs in ice water. The eggs were perfectly cooked and very easy to peel!
