A twist on the traditional breaded and fried version, these eggs are soft boiled then wrapped in sausage and smoked to perfection.
Are you ready to take breakfast-style snacks to the next level? Well, I’m glad. Because you’re going to want to bookmark this recipe. It’s a double threat.
First – I would hope that it doesn’t actually require explaining, but these things taste phenomenal. The “wow factor” payoff when you cut into them is most impressive, too.
Second – although the soft boiled eggs are a little fiddly, overall this recipe for smoked scotch eggs is easy. Once you’ve made the eggs your friend, it moves pretty quickly from there. And just under one hour cook time!
A tip with the eggs – you might find peeling them the most frustrating part, and no one will blame you if you end up opting to cook them a little longer to make them easier to de-shell. I use a teaspoon to gently work between the membrane/shell and the egg and delicately peel it away.
I like to make these when I know I’ll already have the smoker rolling, they don’t take up too much room and cook quickly so it’s a great use of the extra space. I wholeheartedly recommend you serve these smoked soft boiled scotch eggs alongside a flaky biscuit to sop up all the yolky, saucy goodness.Print
