Gluten Free Baked Scoth Eggs

Gluten Free Baked Scotch Eggs Recipe

With Easter coming up in just 3 weeks, you might just find yourself with some hard-boiled eggs you need to use up. Of course you can make the standard deviled eggs or egg salad, but how about something a little different?

How about a Gluten Free Baked Scotch Eggs Recipe?

According to legend, the Scotch Egg was invented by the luxury London department store Fortnum & Mason way back in 1738 as a travelers’ snack for their affluent clientele – a very early form of fast food.

The Scotch Egg sort of fell from grace as a luxury picnic item to a stale, somewhat sketchy food item that could be purchased in petrol (i.e. gas) stations.

The Scotch Egg seems to be making a bit of a comeback, I’ve seen them popping up as a bar food item in some pretty swanky gastropubs. I had personally never had the pleasure of eating a Scotch Egg before, so I decided to try my hand at making some.

Most recipes call for deep frying the sausage encased eggs, but I wasn’t in the mood for frying, so I coated them in some Kinnikinnick gluten free panko style bread crumbs and baked them.

I have to say, I loved them! I mean, what’s not to love? Eggs, sausage, crispy coating? Serve a little spicy mustard on the side and you have the perfect picnic food, in my mind!

  • 6 hard-boiled eggs
  • 2 raw eggs
  • pounds gluten-free country sausage
  • 1 cup Kinnikinnick gluten-free panko style breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • Peel the hard-boiled eggs. Place the 2 raw eggs in a bowl and beat lightly.

Roll the sausage-covered eggs first in the beaten egg mixture, then in the breadcrumbs, pressing lightly so the crumbs adhere. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
