Scotch Egg Sliders
These Scotch Egg Sliders make a great appetizer or dinner. Sausage wrapped eggs make the perfect filling for soft slider buns then top whole grain mustard.
Welcome to this anniversary edition of Mitten Movie Night! Anniversary of my blog? No. Anniversary of the first Mitten Movie Night? No. It’s actually close enough to 14 years of marriage for me and my hubby. It is next week so why not celebrate now? And I think I came up with the perfect dinner for my slider loving hubby, scotch egg sliders.
I was first introduced to the scotch eggs just 3 short years ago. My friend had a party pretty much every Friday over the Summer and everyone was to bring a dish. One Friday, someone brought them and let me tell you-they went fast! Luckily I got one and I was blown away at how delicious they were. So then, like most good food, I set out to make it at home. I thought that I would give it a twist and thus these scotch egg sliders were born!

Then we are binge watching the last few episodes of Ozark. Have you seen this show? I cannot believe that it took us so long to finally get into it. I’ve heard several people rave about it and I’ll tell you, the reviews are spot on because it’s amazing. I will say that Jason Bateman plays the perfect ‘man who has decided to not give a sh!$ anymore’ character. So enough about that and my anniversary and on to the food!
How to make Scotch Egg Sliders:
To start with let’s boil up 4 eggs. I boil them for around 14 minutes so they are hard in the center.
Now I’ll be honest that while I was excited about this recipe I was NOT excited about peeling eggs. I am just bad at it!
Need an EASY WAY to peel hard-boiled eggs?
Exhibit A: The below photo with the sad face is my failed attempt. I knew if I kept that up there would be no egg to go into the middle of my sausage so that was a fail.
So instead of continuing, I hopped online and actually found a video for ‘5 Egg Hacks‘ and guess what, it worked!
See Exhibit B: The below photo with the happy face. Success! No more wanting to scream anytime I want to make a delicious hard boiled egg. How ’bout that!?!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Slice the eggs enough so you have 8 thick slices. I basically didn’t use the ends. If you don’t want to have them go to waste maybe boil extra eggs and use the ends to make some of my son’s favorite potato salad?
Now take the sausage and cut it into 8 pieces. Take a little over half of the meat of one patty and flatten it down.
Place the egg in the middle. Roll the edges over the egg then place the remaining sausage on top.
Smooth the edges so that it hides all the egg and makes a nice patty.
Line a baking pan with tin foil then spray with cooking spray. Now set up the breading station-flour on one plate, egg in a bowl then panko breadcrumbs on another plate.
Take each patty and cover all sides with the flour. Then dip both sides into the egg.
Finally, cover in panko. Place onto the baking sheet. Cook for 35 minutes flipping halfway through.
Basically, that is all the cooking that these scotch egg sliders take. Grab some slider buns and grainy mustard.
Our local store just got a new line of sauces and I picked up the Smoked Porter Mustard for this recipe.
Assemble the scotch egg sliders: bun, scotch egg patty then the mustard. Simple and delicious.
And here you are……
