      I tried making no fry Scottish eggs from a Delicious recipe- not good.

      Do you have a recipe? SHould I roll out the sausage before wrapping the egg? is that the trick?

      Do you deep fry at home?

        Roll the sausage out between sheets of plastic wrap.

          Yes, I do deep fry at home. I find that smaller eggs are better for this too. The smallest I can get in my stores are medium sized eggs. I find that it helps to roll the peeled hard cooked egg in flour before wrapping in sausage, it helps the sausage to stick. I've not rolled the sausage out but just flattened it by hand in to a large thin patty. Wrap up the egg and then deep fry until golden.

            You can get teeny tiny quail eggs, canned, in larger Asian groceries. They are something like $2 for a 15 ounce can, about 20 eggs. Might make a nifty low carb appetizer.

            After casing the egg in sausage, I usually dip it in beaten egg and then breadcrumbs or finely ground oatmeal before frying.

            I did bake them once, rather than frying. It was okay, but the sausage coating had a tendency to split open.

              Try using English Bangers for the sausage, as that's proper. They are not Scottish at all, but English. Also use small eggs, and make sure they are dry when applying the sausage meat.
