Drew’s Scotch Eggs: baked not fried

Drew’s Scotch Eggs are an oven-baked version of a fried favourite.

One day, Drew thought to himself: why is it that Scotch Eggs always seem to be fried? So he created Drew’s Scotch Eggs – an oven-baked version of this fattening favourite.

Serves: Eight
Time: 20–30 minutes


  • 8 eggs, boiled to your satisfaction and peeled
  • 700g low fat sausage mince
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs


Lightly dust eggs with flour. Divide sausage meat into eight equal portions and press around the eggs. Dust sausage-wrapped eggs in flour, dip into beaten egg, and roll over the crumbs.

Place the Scotch Eggs on baking paper in the oven at 180°C and cook for 10–20 mins (cooking time depends on how much sausage mince you use).

    healthier than fried - but tastier ???? I wonder.
    Also good if you scoop out the yolks and mash with whatever you fancy - curry powder - chives - spring onions- mayonnaise - refill carefully hold the 2 halves of egg together and follow same procedure - very tasty - these are called picnic eggs and Marks and Sparks make the very best.
