Scottish Eggs

If you are like me and have kids then you will color Easter eggs every year and after the hunt will have dozens of eggs to figure out what to do with them. The first choice is deviled eggs but after several rounds then you want something different. So next comes chopped egg sandwiches. Those are good a time or two but get old quick. So i did some research and found Scottish Eggs. Most recipes call for beer and I not only don't have any I am not going to buy any for this recipe either. so I will give you my recipe for Tamy's Scottish Leftover Easter Eggs

10 boiled eggs, peeled
2 lbs sausage (i used homemade deer sausage)
1/2 c flour
2 beaten eggs
crush cereal
salt and pepper to taste
5 slices of American cheese

First salt and pepper the flour like you would for frying. Take an egg and roll in the seasoned flour. Divide the sausage in to 5 portions. Divide one portion in half and flatten in to a patty. Wrap the patty around the floured egg. Next dip in the beaten egg and roll in the crushed cereal. (you could also use bread or cracker crumbs what ever you have available). Then fry in hot grease. If you are deep frying about 4 minutes on each side in 350 degrees. If you are just frying make sure all sides are brown really well. Drain on a paper towel. Cut in half lenght-wise and melt half a slice of cheese on top of each half. Repeat for remaining eggs.

If after frying you cut into an egg and find the meat not completely done, you can microwave for a minute without ruining the taste, plus it helps to melt the cheese. Not all of mine were completely done so I microwaved them. I guess I was in to big of a hurry at the end.

My husband loved these and requested them again already. I wasn't that crazy about them but I don't like sausage.

You can also freeze them and pop them in a toaster oven for a quick snack later.
