Sausage-Smothered Hard Boiled Eggs

This is a simple, delicious way to eat breakfast, and it creates interest even in picky eaters!

Are you unsure of how to hard boil an egg? The following method works well for me: 

1. Place 6 eggs in a pot and cover with water. 

2. Bring the water to a rolling boil.

3. Turn off the burner, cover, and let the eggs sit in the hot water for 10 minutes.

4. Rinse in cold water or let sit in ice water to stop the eggs from cooking any further.

5. Peel and enjoy your pefectly-cooked eggs!

To smother the hard boiled eggs in sausage, here are the needed ingredients:

6 hard-boiled eggs
1 pound ground sausage (I add a bit of salt and pepper to mine)
Butter to coat the frying pan

That's it!


1. Heat the pan. Just before ready to cook, coat in butter. 

2. Separate the ground sausage into 6 round balls.

3. Flatten the balls and wrap each hard-boiled egg until completely covered in sausage as pictured.

4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. The sausages will finish cooking after you brown them on the pan.

5. Place the sausage-covered eggs in the pan and roll them around, making sure all sides are slightly browned.

6. After cooking about 10 minutes, transfer to a glass baking dish and finish by baking in the oven for another 10 minutes. 

7. Let cool 5 minutes and enjoy your awesome eggs! I really enjoyed having a pickle with mine. You can also eat them with a dipping sauce such as mayonnaise.


  1. Awesome recipe. I need to try this. It looks easy to make. I bet they would be nice to take as a snack when we travel.

  2. I might have to try this for my Hubs. I don't eat sausage and right now I am not eating many eggs because supposedly, they aren't good for my gallbladder. Who knows!!
