This is an interesting little treat. British in origin, these are also called Picnic Eggs, although I have labeled them as a breakfast item since we ate them for breakfast. It's a boiled egg that's wrapped in sausage, breaded, and deep fried. We were surprised at how tasty these were!
8 eggs, hard boiled and peeled
1 package (tube) breakfast sausage (like Jimmy Dean's)
2 raw eggs & splash water (for egg wash)
1 C flour
2 to 2 1/2 C panko breadcrumbs
Using your hands, pinch off pieces of sausage and wrap around each egg, making sure no egg shows through. Mix the raw eggs and some water together. Roll the egg around in the flour, then into the egg wash, then into the panko, making sure to completely coat the eggs. Fry them in the peanut oil heated at 350 degrees until well browned and the sausage is cooked through.
