This sausage and egg dish resembles mini meatloaves, except these are deep fried until crispy and golden brown.


  • 1 pound ground sausage meat
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh chives
  • 3tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 5 cups fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 6 large hard-boiled eggs, peeled
  • Vegetable oil (for deep-frying)


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the sausage, chives and parsley until well combined.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and mustard.
  3. Place the breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl.
  4. Place the flour in another shallow bowl.
  5. Roll one of the eggs in the flour. Wet hands and take 1/3 cup of the meat mixture and press around a boiled egg to completely cover.
  6. Brush the meat with the mustard mixture and then dredge in the breadcrumbs. Continue with the rest of the boiled eggs.
  7. Fill a large saucepan with 1-1/2 of vegetable oil and heat until a deep-fry thermometer reads 325 degrees. Add the sausage and egg and fry for 7 minutes.
  8. Remove and place on paper towels to drain. Transfer to a serving plate and serve immediately.
