  • 7 eggs 6 for soft boiling, 1 for the egg wash
  • 1 pound sausage meat
  • 1 1/2 cups pork panko
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard


  • Soft boil 6 eggs, then carefully peel them. Chill them in the fridge before wrapping with sausage.
  • Preheat the oven to 425-F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Divide the sausage into 6 equal pieces. Flatten each one into a thin pancake.
  • Wrap a piece of pork around each egg and seal gently.
  • Dunk each Scotch Egg in the beaten egg and then into the pork panko. Set aside on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake until the sausage is cooked, about 10-14 minutes, depending on the thickness of the sausage.
  • Broil for the last minute to brown the tops.
  • Whisk together the heavy whipping cream and Dijon mustard to serve with the Scotch Eggs.


Chef Jenn's Tips

  • The cheffy secret to getting a perfectly jammy egg inside the sausage is to chill the eggs after boiling them for a maximum of 5 minutes. Cool them under running water and peel them ASAP to stop the cooking. Then pop them into the fridge or even the freezer (for just a few minutes) to cool down. The cold egg yolk won't get hot enough to cook, while the thin sausage layer will.
  • You can also coat the Scotch Eggs in a mixture of almond flour and Parmesan cheese.
  • The creamy mustard sauce can also be made with whole-grain mustard or your favorite mustard.
