Last year these were made out of necessity. This year I am doing them again on purpose. No bread crumbs and no deep frying for this bbq recipe. Its just my take on scotch eggs on the grill.
For this recipe I use:
- 8 medium boiled eggs
- 8 cevapcici (substitute your favorite sausage brand out of the casing)
- 16 pieces roasted red pepper (Or substitute jalapenos for a spicier Scotch egg)
- 2 spring onions finely chopped
- 1 cup shredded colby cheese
- 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
- 1/4 cup bbq rub
- 1 cup bbq sauce
For each scotch egg I lay down a piece of plastic wrap first. This makes assembly so much easier. Spread out the sausage to make a flat patty about 5 inches in diameter.
I lay down 2 pieces of roasted red pepper, some spring onions and 1/4 cup of the shredded cheese. Lay the egg down and using the plastic wrap bring the sides of the sausage around the egg. Making sure all of the egg is completely enclosed season them with your favorite BBQ rub. ( Please note if your sausage is not well seasoned you may want to add some bbq rub on the inside of the egg as well on the outside of the egg.) Remove from the plastic once the eggs are formed.
To the grill they go at 250 F indirect. I used a frogmat to lay my eggs on. Grill the eggs for 1/2 hour then turn them. Continue grilling until the temperature of the sausage reached 165F. Remove and let stand for at least 10 minutes cut and serve in halves or quarters. Super yummy. Serve with your favorite warmed BBQ sauce.
