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.
I was first introduced to the scotch eggs at a party. Someone brought them as a dish to pass and luckily I got to try 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 why not take the basics of what is in a Scotch egg, hard-boiled eggs, and pork sausage, and then coat it into panko breadcrumbs for the crunchy coating? Then I baked the sausage patties and slapped them on slider buns. Boom! They turned out great.
What beer pairs well with Scotch Egg Sliders?
The beer: Two Hearted from Bell’s Brewery.
Of course, I am a Bell’s girl who wouldn’t be with their wide variety of beers. But one that is the mainstay in our home is Two Hearted.
What TV show pairs well with slider sandwiches and craft beer?
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.
These slider with sausage and egg sliders have-
- Hard-boiled eggs. Make sure that it is hard-boiled so the yolk is solid. This usually takes about 12-14 minutes.
- Ground pork sausage. Use traditional or hot.
- Flour, egg, and panko breadcrumbs for coating.
- Butter slider buns.
- Whole grain mustard.
How to make Scotch egg sliders step-by-step
To start with let’s 4 hard-boiled eggs. I boil them for around 14 minutes then add them to some ice water for another 15 minutes before peeling the shells.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Slice the eggs enough so you have 8 thick slices. Save the ends for another recipe, like potato salad.
Flatten the meat out in the palm of your hand. Spread the sausage out so it’s larger than the palm.
Place a piece of the egg in the center of the sausage.
Roll the edges over the egg to form a patty. Close any seems. Repeat with the rest of the patties.
Coat the patties in flour.
In a bowl whisk the egg with a small amount of water. Dip each side with the egg wash.
Then roll the patty in the panko breadcrumbs.
Place onto the baking sheet. Cook for 35 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Most Scotch egg recipes that I noticed were served with a mustard dipping sauce, so I spread the buns with whole-grain mustard.
Assemble the scotch egg sliders: bun, scotch egg patty, then the mustard. Simple and delicious.
Tips & Variations
- Make sure that the yolk is completely cooked in the center of the egg otherwise, you will not be able to place it in the center of the patty. Cooking time of 14 minutes is usually optimal.
- I use ground pork sausage for this recipe but you could use ground turkey sausage as well.
- Make your own homemade slider buns with this recipe from JoCooks.
Add the sandwiches to a covered container. Heat the sausage patty in the air fryer or add the sandwiches to a plate with a damp paper towel and microwave for 45 seconds.
It is not recommended to freeze this recipe.
