Scotch Eggs are my go-to quick make-ahead breakfast! I sometimes buy pre-hardboiled eggs from Costco to make the process even faster. These are perfect for weekday breakfasts when you are in a hurry or need portable protein. I also use them during the holidays. They are awesome for Christmas morning so I am not stuck cooking while everyone is waiting to unwrap the gifts.
I am starting to plan my Christmas morning menu, as it is only a couple of weeks away. I know these will for sure be included in it because of their ease of preparation! That is as far as I have gotten though….. hehe…. I am a planner at heart but we had a crazy week so didn’t get as much done as I had hoped.
I am reflecting on our week and I am reminded to enjoy every day in your life. You never know when it’s your time or a loved ones time to go. My Sister In Law’s Step Dad passed this week as well as my Cousin’s almost wife’s Dad. My heart hurts for them to lose a loved one near Christmas, but there really isn’t ever good timing. I pray that the love they had and great memories will flood over them.
I hope this super easy recipe saves you time and helps with your meal prep! If you don’t want to use Jimmy Dean sausage, you can also buy pork sausage and season it yourself. If you don’t like pork, turkey sausage will work, it’s just sticky and harder to roll around the egg. You might have to add some extra fat to the pan so it doesn’t stick as well.
This is the pan I use for baking. I lined it with foil to save time so I don’t have to wash dishes….. Think easy clean up 🙂

Here’s the YouTube Link so you can watch the video on how to make these:
- 1 log Jimmy Dean Breakfast sausage I get it at Costco
- 8 Hard Boiled Eggs
- Make a thin patty with the sausage and put the egg in the middle. Close the sausage around the egg until it is all covered.
- Place on baking sheet.
- Continue wrapping eggs in sausage until all the sausage and eggs are done.
- Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes or until sausage is browned. You can rotate the eggs once during cooking to crisp the whole outside of the sausage.
