Picnic Oven Baked Scotch Egg Recipe

The not so humble Scotch egg is a stalwart picnic favourite and long gone is the day glow ,artificial sun tanned Scotch egg of old ,if you bake them yourselves. And oven baking means it is healthier , no  longer will I eat a deep fried Scotch egg. I don't about you but I am clinging onto summer a little longer , there is no reason why we can't continue to picnic as Autumn tumbles in.

  • Ingredients

  • 400g (14 oz) sausage meat I went with one that had black pepper and nutmeg in.
  • 6 hard boiled eggs 
  • Fine dried breadcrumbs combined with mixed herbs.
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Some flour


Preheat the oven to 190 C

After you have boiled the eggs and let them cool, shell them gently ( good idea to put the waste shell in a dish etc as it keeps your preparation  area clear)

Divide your sausage meat into 6 sections.

Cover each egg in turn with the sausage meat ensuring that there at no gaps.

Rolls the sausage meat covered egg so you achieve a nice round shape.

Then in turn roll each egg into flour next roll them in the beaten egg

It is a wise idea to roll the scotch eggs again ( if you wish)

After this is down roll them in bread crumbs and place upon a baking tray.

And cook for around 25 minutes adjust this depends on the thickness of the sausage meat.

I read a tip which was to put a cocktail stick through them to stop them rolling about tin the oven.

Ideal for taking on a picnic just so happens I eat mine in my office , though my office just so happens to be a field.
