Instant Pot Scotch Eggs


Scotch eggs are very nice to see and you’ll easily impress your guests with a few minutes’ recipe! Scotch eggs are essentially 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, but 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.
