Ersatz Scotch Eggs, Part Deux

Ersatz Scotch Eggs, Part Deux
From: VunderBob
Here's the link to Part One, which didn't really work out to Bobbio's satisfaction.

Time for an update. I've made this following version a couple of times now. It has all of the structural integrity of the original, plus it's spicy enough that you don't have to choose between boredom from blandness vs. starvation.

4 hardboiled eggs
1 raw egg
1/4 cup bread crumbs, or similar amount of crushed saltine crackers
1 lb hot bulk sausage
powdered garlic
rubbed sage
black pepper

Mix the bread crumbs with the sausage and raw egg. Divide the mixture into 4 parts, forming into patties. Dust the sausage patties with the sage, pepper, and garlic to suit your taste. Take a hardboiled egg, place it in the middle of the sausage patty, and cover the egg evenly. Put in a baking dish (elevate on a rack if you desire) and bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes.

I make a batch on Sunday night, and carry one to work Monday-Thursday, so they keep well. I eat them cold; never tried nuking them for some reason probably related to testosterone.
