  • 4
    Eskort Gold Medal Pork Sausages
  • 1/2
    chopped Eskort Picnic Ham
  • 5
    eggs (4 to serve and one for brushing)
  • 1/2
    chopped parsley
  • 1/2
    bread crumbs
  • 2
    capers, drained and finely chopped
  • 1
    olive oil, for frying
  • Fresh rolls for serving


Boil 4 eggs for 4 – 5 minutes (still need to be soft). Peel and set aside.

Remove the casing from the sausages and put the meat into a bowl. Add the capers, chopped parsley, ham and add salt & pepper to taste.

Beat the other egg in a shallow bowl.

Divide the sausage mix into 8 portions. In the palm of your hand flatten one of the 8 portions, then place the boiled egg on top. In the other palm flatten another one of the 8 portions and then cover the egg so that it is completely hidden inside the sausage mix. Repeat this with the other 4 eggs.

Roll each covered egg in the beaten egg and then in the bread crumbs.

Fry for 8 - 12 minutes on a medium heat, or until the outside is golden and the sausage mix is cooked throughout.

Serve with fresh bread rolls or a fresh salad.
