Disney/Pixar Brave: Scottish Egg Recipe

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

In anticipation of Disney/Pixar’s Brave opening in theaters on June 22, I decided to try my hand at one of the foods featured in the movie, Scottish Eggs.  The first time I had ever heard of Scottish Eggs was a few months ago when my husband’s co-worker brought them to work.  They were all the rage and gobbled up in minutes.  When Disney was gracious enough to share their Scottish Egg recipe with me, I knew I had to make them!  These are a perfect breakfast meal or afternoon snack.  Full of protein and so delicious!

Make sure to set up your breading station.  I know sometimes I skip steps but with a recipe like this, it makes it so much easier and lessens the mess.  I chose to add some fresh parsley to my panko because it’s a nice mild herb.   I also added some garlic powder to my flour mixtures for a little extra flavor.

When you roll the sausage into balls and flatten it with your hand, I suggest placing it on a surface that will be easy to remove it from.  I put mine on a plastic cutting board and the sausage was a bit difficult to pull off.


Encasing the sausage around the egg is pretty easy to do.  Just watch those eggs, they can be slippery little things!  Then you’re going to let them take a bath in your flour, egg and panko bowls.

And once you’re done cooking them, let them drain on paper towels.  A few pointers when making these.  If serving them as appetizers, I would probably use medium-size eggs.  Traditionally quail eggs were used but I’m going to assume that quail eggs aren’t readily available where you are (they definitely aren’t where I am).  If your eggs aren’t perfectly peeled, don’t worry!  You’re wrapping sausage around them, no one will know.  Also, make sure your oil is not too hot.  It’s very important to use the right temperature.  If you don’t, your panko will brown up too quickly and burn, while your sausage is still raw.  Not good.  Or safe.  And I’m sure that Queen Elinor never served improperly cooked Scottish Eggs.  A woman of royalty would never do that!

If you want to eat like like the royals in Disney/Pixar’s Brave, then cook up some Scottish Eggs and serve with some dijon mustard.  But don’t be surprised if you find this little treat showing up on your menu again.  They are that addictive!  And make sure to check out Brave in theaters June 22nd!
