I made these the other night, using my homemade pork sausage, and though I was a little trepidatious about actually eating an egg wrapped in sausage, covered in bread crumbs and fried, my sister pointed out it wasn’t that different from a typical, hearty breakfast in a more convenient package, and they were quite good.
- 1 lb sausage meat
- 6 hard boiled eggs, with shells removed
- 1 large raw egg, beaten
- 1 c breadcrumbs (I used panko)
Wrap each egg in a thin layer of sausage meat; dip in egg and roll in breadcrumbs. Deep-fry or pan-fry until sausage is cooked through. Serve with country gravy.
- 1/2 c oil (I used bacon grease)
- 3/4 c all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- 2 c milk
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Whisk in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually stir in milk so that no lumps form, and continue cooking and stirring until thickened. If the gravy becomes too thick, you may thin it with a little more milk.
