Prep time 20 minutes
Cook time 15 minutes
Total time 35 minutes
6 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup panko bread crumbs
7 ounces (¾ cup) fresh breakfast sausage, casings removed (if necessary)
Vegetable oil (for frying)
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
Add 4 eggs to small saucepan, add cold water to cover eggs, bring to a boil and remove from heat, remove eggs after 2-3 minutes
Rinse eggs in cold water to cool.
Gently crack shells and peel, add peeled eggs to bowl of cold water (you can do this ahead of time, up to 1 day)
In large bowl add flour, another large bowl add panko bread crumbs.
Divide sausage in 4 equal parts, pat them flat into a patty, lay 1 soft boil egg onto the sausage patty and wrap with the sausage making sure it is sealed completely. Do the same with all eggs.
Take remaining 2 eggs and whisk with a little water
Carefully take the sausage coated eggs and dip in flour, then egg wash, then panko (this can also be done up to a day ahead, keep in refrigerator.)
In saucepan, fill oil about 2" deep, making sure it will coat the egg. Heat oil medium heat (350') and add eggs in. Cook 5-6 minutes, remove eggs to a cooling rack so access oil drips off.
Season when hot with salt and pepper.
Serve with my caramelized onion dip (next recipe) or traditionally mustard.

What to pair
There is spice, multiple flavors, different ingredients and array of dishes I would suggest a nice lager or tequila margaritas. Both won't compete with flavors, a little citrus to cut through some spice and fat, refreshing and delicious!
