Scotch Eggs Go Tailgating

 

Scotch Eggs Go Tailgating, A Scotch egg is a work of art. These things are AWESOME; everyone who has tried one says “Oh My Gosh, these are great!!!” And being the Chef those words are music to my ears.

A Scotch Egg is a hardboiled egg, wrapped with a quarter pound of sausage, then wrapped with a strip of thick cut bacon and put onto a stick. We call it “Breakfast on a Stick” These are perfect for your Tailgating and Super Bowl parties or just a weekend get together. The fun part is that you don’t have to use only one kind of sausage. We make them using all kinds of sausage from smokin’ hot to mild and not just pork sausage. We’ve also made them with seasoned ground beef and lamb!

I think besides the “off the hook” flavor, it’s the texture that you experience as you eat this that makes them so good. First you see it, looks like something good to eat. You smell it, yup. Then, you taste that first bite of bacon, then the layer of sausage followed by the soft creamy egg. Oh my, these are really so good.

I love this little grill, only 65 pounds, runs off 12 volts and fits easily in an RV or truck. It’s big enough to smoke a turkey or a few pork butts and small enough to take anywhere. Now the Bull Racks in the Davy Crockett bring it to a new level. You now have 3 times the cooking space and can easily grill for a bigger crowd.

Keep in mind that when we make these we are doing 20 or more at a time. The following recipe will be for 8, using two pounds of sausage. If you are doing a Tailgate you can make them up and put them in the refrigerator until ready.

Ingredients: Scotch Eggs Go Tailgating

  • 8 hardboiled eggs, peeled

  • 8 Popsicle type sticks, soaked in water for 30 minutes

A Wood Pellet Grill Recipe

Directions: Scotch Eggs Go Tailgating

Boil and peel your eggs and set them aside. Divide your sausage into ¼ pound balls and flatten out. I find that if you flatten out the sausage it goes around the egg a little easier. Have a bowl of water so you can dip your hands in it to just moisten. When you are forming your sausage balls the meat won’t stick to your hands if they are damp.

Press the sausage around the egg making it as tight as you can without crushing the egg. Wrap it with a strip of bacon. You don’t need anything to hold the bacon, it will stick by itself. If you are putting them on a stick you’re ready. Take your Popsicle stick and push it into the meatball and firmly into the egg. You are ready for the grill. I like to smoke these 30 minutes before I turn the heat up to 350 for 30-40 minutes. You can skip the 30 minute smoke if need be. But, it will add another layer of flavor.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

Cooking In the Oven:

We have been getting requests for recipe conversions for the Oven. I tell folks all the time that cooking on a Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker is just as easy as cooking in your oven. Just about anyone can do it and do it well. Think about it. You set your control knob to the temp you want, put your meat in and leave it for a set time. It is the same thing, time and temperature is what it is all about. The Green Mountain grill is just like your oven except it uses wood pellets and has wheels. Cook these for an hour at 350 degrees (177c).

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can do our recipes on any grill, even some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion and Do What You Love,
Ken & Patti

  1. these look good

  2. My wife is British and we have been making these for years. We have gone from deep frying to oven and now to the smoker. This is a great recipe, we have substituted the bacon with an egg wash and bread crumbs seasoned with a BBQ rub. No matter how you do it it’s great!!
