Scotch eggs are so easy to make and are usually a hit with adults AND kids. Below is the recipe for the eggs and also the sauce.
- 2 TBS butter
- 2 TBS flour
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup evaporated milk
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 tsp ground mustard
- pepper to taste
The night before:
Hard boil the number of eggs you want to cook, peel them and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning:
Move oven rack to top third of the oven and then preheat oven to 450
Take 1 chub of ground sausage (I use Jimmy Dean HOT) for every five eggs
Squeeze out each chub into five equal blobs
Wrap egg in sausage and pack like a snowball
Put in uncovered baking dish and bake for 30 minutes
Melt butter in a saucepan and add flour to make a rue. Add chicken broth and milk, mix well and heat to thicken. Add mustard, pepper and cheese. Mix well and serve over scotch egg.
