This dish looks amazing but in fact it can be made easily using the Instant Pot.
Impress your guests and diversify your breakfast with this egg recipe.
All you need is eggs, ground sausage, oil and spices - that's all!
Scotch eggs are essentially hard boiled eggs wrapped in a fried sausage and they can be served both at breakfast or as an appetizer or even as a picnic dish!
The typically UK pairing for this kind of eggs are pickles (check out can you make pickles in Instant Pot?) .
You can also serve them with toasted bread, fresh veggies or your favorite dip or sauce.
For this recipe I'm using the metal trivet (that comes with the Instant Pot) in order to make the eggs.
