I’m not Scottish. Heck, I don’t even know what Kilt size I would wear… but I do know how to make some pretty stellar Scotch Eggs in the Smoker.

The classic Scotch Eggs have become a favored meal when going to a pub… but we are going to show you how you can now make them for your buddies while tailgating at the game or, in your backyard with your grill… but these are even better if you use your smoker. Wow… that was seriously a really “run on” sentience… Weird Al would never forgive me if he saw my serious word crimes. Anywho… let’s get to it.

Ingredients for Scotch Eggs:

12 Medium Eggs (hard boiled, without the shell)
2 More Eggs (beaten) for egg wash dipping
2 Pounds Pork Sausage (breakfast sausage is even better)
3 Cups Breadcrumbs
1 Cup Flower
2 teaspoons Dried Minced Onion
Salt & Pepper

Mix Sausage with Minced Onion. Sprinkle in salt and pepper.

Scotch Eggs look hard but are pretty easy


Don’t have a Smoker? OMG really???? Smokers are like an outdoor crock-pot… you need one… just go buy one right now!

Still don’t have a Smoker? OK, Fine.


Deep Fry these babies at 375 degrees F for about 5 minutes or so. Make sure they are nice and brown on the outside or…

On the Grill (indirect heat) 400 degrees F for about 35 minutes


Dipping sauce:

Option #1: Serve with Dijon Spicy Mustard as a dip… Seriously good.

Option #2: Serve with Famous Dave’s* Devils Spit BBQ Sauce… also really, really good

Option #3: Serve with Tostito’s* Nacho Cheese Sauce… #HOLYCOWTHATSCRAZYGOOD

Option #4: Ranch Dressing (as weird as it sounds) makes a pretty great dipping sauce.

this is really good recipe for scotch eggs you need to make
