Steader's Scotch Eggs

Updated: Feb 13, 2021

Scotch Eggs are one of the most delicious treats you can eat whether you get one at a pub, a renaissance fair, or make them at home. These were originally designed for picnics and now you can make this comfort food in the comfort of your home and enjoy it with less guilt using our healthier air fry recipe below.


6 pealed hard boiled eggs

2 eggs

1 cup Panko bread crumbs

1/4 cup flour

1 pound package sausage

1 tablespoon chives minced

2 teaspoons sugar

2 teaspoons vinegar

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper


Mix sugar, vinegar, and soy sauce in medium bowl. Add 1 teaspoon ginger (reserving the other 1/2 teaspoon). Add sausage and chives and mix until all ingredients are fully incorporated. Divide up into 6 equal parts and flatten as thin as possible on pieces of parchment paper.

On a paper plate, add 1/4 cup flour, dash of salt and pepper and stir gently. Set aside.

In small bowl, scramble 2 eggs adding a splash of water to thin. Set aside.

On another paper plate, add Panko bread crumbs, remaining ginger, salt and pepper and stir gently. Set aside.


Wrap sausage around hard boiled egg. You can do this by placing the egg in the middle of the sausage and folding the sides up, or drape the sausage over the top. I found draping works best. Do this by turning the sausage over onto the egg and drape the sausage over the top of the egg, remove the parchment, flip the egg and sausage back over into your other hand (so the sausage is on the bottom and egg on top) and gather the edges of the sausage closed.

Roll your wrapped egg:

First in seasoned flour.

Next in egg wash

Last in Panko bread crumbs.

Air fry:

Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Place wrapped eggs on tray in middle rack. Do not overcrowd; cook in batches if necessary. Cook for 14 minutes, turning eggs over halfway through. Repeat with remaining eggs.


Preheat oven to 450. Bake in middle rack for 20-22 minutes turning eggs over halfway through.

Servings: 6

Cooking Tip: To help the sausage stick to the egg, pat dry with a paper towel before wrapping in sausage mixture.

You can increase the serving size to 8 by using 8 hardboiled eggs, but amount of sausage layer will be thinner.
