Easy Proper Scotch Eggs with Mustard Sauce

"Every other Sunday, we would go to on holiday to the seaside, and Brighton Beach was my favourite. Scotch Eggs always filled our picnic basket, along with some Derby Cheese, pickled onions, piccalilli, flaky sausage rolls, scones, and tarts. If I was a good girl, Mum would surprise me with a small paper bag full of pear drops. I could spend the entire day frolicking at the seaside, filling the empty picnic basket with the most beautiful hand-picked pebbles I was able to discover. Now that I’m an adult, living in Canada, when I hear Scotch Eggs, it brings me right back to that exact time and place when life seemed so much simpler."

NotesPanko burns quick, so do not make your oil too hot!
Many people eat these with soft or medium boiled eggs.
These go pretty quick, so I fried two at a time and prepped the next two while they cooked.

Cooking Time20 min


  • 24 ounces ground pork or ground meat of choice

I have heard of scotch eggs but never knew what they were. Now I know and they look delicious. I am not big on fried food but for these I would make an exception. It would make a nice change. They don't look hard to make. I love all the ingredients. Can't wait to try it. Thank you.

I've always been intrigued by scotch eggs. I have never eaten them. I like deep fried stuff though and I would love to try them. I always they were complicated to make but this seems pretty simple. I'm definitely going to give it a try. I would like to dip them in some chili-mayo.

I know mustard goes really well with pork but eggs? Actually, now that I think of it potato salad and deviled eggs have mustard so I suppose it's a great idea after all. I've never had Scotch eggs before but it's definitely something I'd like to try. Soft boiled eggs would be perfect for this recipe so that when you cut into them all of that yummy yolk will ooze out onto the pork and if just for a moment, all will be good in the world. LOL

I have also never heard of Scotch Eggs before but they look like a really unique breakfast option! Definitely a high protein breakfast! Plus, I love anything with Panko so I am definitely thinking these are worth a try!

This Easy Proper Scotch Eggs with Mustard Sauce seems like another hit egg recipe. There's something about eggs that really appeals to my appetite. I just love mustard on eggs and it's just irresistible!

I have to say I have never heard of Scotch eggs before, but these look amazing! It is kind of like the flavors of sausage, eggs, and toast all in the same bite! Very budget friendly too. This would be a great impressive thing to set out at your next brunch gathering, and would even make a great party appetizer!

I am pretty sure regular bread crumbs would work. I am sure Panko was not originally used. I would love to try making Scotch eggs. It seems simple enough. Now, to just get my chickens to lay enough eggs to make them. These would be great to make up the night before and fry them in the morning.

Ooh I love Scotch Eggs! I have always wanted to make them. This recipe sounds easy enough to follow. I don't have any Panko though. Do you think this would work with regular bread crumbs? Has anybody tried this? I just wonder if it would still give the right texture after frying.
