Scotch Eggs


1 pound bulk turkey, pork or Italian sausage
Fine dry bread crumbs or cornmeal
8 plain or pickled hard-cooked eggs
1/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs or cornmeal
1 egg, beaten


Divide sausage into 8 (2-ounce) portions. On lightly crumb-sprinkled surface, pat out each portion to about 1/8-inch thickness. Wrap completely around 1 of the hard-cooked eggs, pressing edges together to seal. Repeat with remaining sausage and hard-cooked eggs. Roll sausage-coated eggs in crumbs and dip in beaten egg. Place on baking sheet and bake in preheated 375F oven until lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

To pickle, drain 1 can (16 oz.) sliced beets, reserving juice. Set beets aside for another use. In medium saucepan, combine reserved beet juice, 1 3/4 cups white vinegar, 1 cup sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons whole allspice and 1 stick cinnamon, halved. Bring to boiling, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Arrange 8 hard-cooked eggs in 1-quart jar with tight-fitting lid. Pour hot mixture over eggs. Cover tightly.

Store in cool place OR cool at room temperature 1 hour. Refrigerate to blend flavors, at least several days or up to several weeks. After opening, refrigerate and use within 1 week.

Makes 8 servings.
