    Mysterygirl's Note:

    I got this from an older English woman at our church. It is one of our favorites. I prefer using the Italian bread crumbs but plain work just as well. The ingredients are approximations because it depends on the size of the eggs and how many you want to make. They even reheat well the next day in the microwave.

      The trick to the pork sticking to the egg is dip in seasoned flour before "wrapping" with sausage. A scottish friend of ours shared this recipe and it is a winner at brunch and so pretty to serve!

      what a unique recipe! I had a hard time dipping the eggs in the eggwash without the pork falling apart, but once I got it all together and fried these babies in hot oil, they came out delicious. They looked monstrous (and very entertaining to look at I might add; hubby calls them "odd-balls"), so I cut'em into quarters. They were filling and wonderful. I serve them with some ketchup. Thank you Mysterygirl!

      Wonderful, but what could be bad? The kids loved these. We ate them cold as part of a picnic meal with mustard. I baked them as directed but found they crisp nicer if I flip them a few times. Thanks for posting.
