Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Instructions

Hard boil your eggs. To get perfectly hard boiled eggs, once the water is boiling, add your eggs and set your timer for 9 1/2 minutes. As soon as your timer goes off, remove the eggs and put them in a bath of cold water. Once your eggs are cooked and shells are removed, set up an assembly line with the beaten eggs, sausage meat and bread crumbs. Now you'll want to take about a 1/4 cup of the ground sausage, form a disk and begin to shape it around the hardboiled egg. Take the sausage-covered egg and dip it in the beaten egg. Roll the sausage-covered egg in the bread crumbs until it is generously coated. The final step is to fry those eggs up! Once all of your eggs are coated in the bread crumbs, heat up your oil over medium high heat. You'll know your oil is at the right temperature when you drop a few bread crumbs in the pot and it begins to sizzle. Take care not to add the eggs to the oil to early - if the oil isn't hot enough it will just saturate the bread crumbs and it won't be as tasty. Drop two eggs at a time in the hot oil and cook them until very golden brown, about 6-7 minutes. Make sure you give the eggs enough time in the oil so the sausage fully cooks. Remove the fried eggs from the oil and place on a plate with paper towels to remove the excess oil. Cut the eggs in half or quarters and serve while hot.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a brand of gluten-free panko.

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!
