Divide sausage into 6 equal portions. On a lightly breadcrumb-sprinkled surface, pat out each portion to about .25cm (1/8 in) thickness. Wrap portions completely around each of the hard boiled eggs, pressing edges together to seal.
Dip sausage-coated eggs in beaten egg, then roll in breadcrumbs. Place on baking tray and bake in preheated 190 C / Gas mark 5 oven until lightly browned, about 25 minutes.
To prevent the eggs from rolling around on the baking tray, stick cocktail sticks through the eggs at an angle pointing downwards.
I prepared this recipe using egg mayonnaise (chopped egg, mayo, dijon, cayenne pepper, salt) as I've always disliked the whole egg scotch eggs; hard boiled egg is boring. Unfortunately this resulted in them splitting open in the oven. Any ideas on how I can prevent this from happening? - 26 Dec 2011
