7 eggs, divided

1 pound sausage , removed from casing if necessary

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

Vegetable oil for frying


Place 6 eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water, bring to a simmer, then cover and let sit for 5 minutes before running under cold water. Once cool enough to handle, peel eggs and set aside. Divide sausage into 6 evenly sized balls. Press each ball into a disc then wrap each sausage disc around the peeled egg. Beat remaining egg. Then place sausage-covered egg in flour, followed by egg, followed by breadcrumbs; repeat with all eggs. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Pour one inch of vegetable oil into sauce pan and place over medium high heat. Heat oil to 350 degrees F and, working in small batches, fry eggs until brown on all sides, placing browned eggs in preheated oven. Once all eggs are cooked serve immediately with cucumber pickles.
