Scotch Eggs

Scotch Eggs are a classic British snack that combines soft or hard-boiled eggs wrapped in savory sausage meat, coated in breadcrumbs, and then deep-fried to golden perfection. They’re crunchy on the outside, with a flavorful meat layer and a creamy egg center. Scotch Eggs make a fantastic appetizer, picnic snack, or a part of a hearty breakfast. Here’s how to make them at home.


  • 6 large eggs (for boiling)
  • 1 additional egg (beaten, for coating)
  • 1 pound (450g) sausage meat (you can use flavored or plain sausage meat based on your preference)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying
