Air Fryer Scotch Eggs Ingredients:


  • Place your small eggs into your air fryer baking pan inside of your air fryer basket. Cook for 19 minutes at 120c/250f. Peel your eggs once they are cool enough to handle.
  • Place your medium bread roll once broken up into chunks into your blender and make into breadcrumbs. Aim for quick coarse breadcrumbs as it will add to the texture of your scotch eggs.
  • Season the breadcrumbs with ¼ of your sage and some salt and pepper.
  • Place into a bowl everything else as well as the last of the sage and some extra salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Season your hands with oat flour and using your hands roll out the sausage meat.
  • Place the eggs one at a time onto the rolled-out sausage meat and seal each egg in the sausage meat.
  • Coat in breadcrumbs and place in the air fryer basket.
  • Cook for 10 minutes at 180c/360f.
  • Serve.


Because the eggs are hidden inside of the sausage meat, they don’t have to be perfectly peeled to make gorgeous looking air fryer scotch eggs.
If you don’t roll out the sausage meat enough or use small boiled eggs your scotch eggs will end up much bigger and take longer to cook.
I recommend oat flour as it is rather dry and is perfect for handling the sausage meat and making it easy to mix.
