  • Author: Jenna
  • Yield: 6 1x


For the Turkey Sausage

  • 1 lb uncooked 98% fat-free turkey breast, ground
  • 1 teaspoon of sage
  • 1/8 tsp of marjoram
  • 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp of black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp of salt

For the Scotch Eggs

  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 3/4 cup of panko bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • parsley flakes for garnish (optional)

For the Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup of mayonaisse
  • 1/3 cup of real maple syrup
  • 2 tsp of chipotle pepper in adobo sauce


1. Combine mayonnaise, maple syrup, and adobo sauce in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use. Mix sage, majoram, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Place ground turkey in a large bowl and mix the spice mixture into the turkey using your hands.

2. Divide turkey sausage into 6 even portions. Flatten each portion into a thin patty. Place one hard boiled egg in the middle and wrap the sausage around the eggs, sealing all sides. Set eggs aside on a plate.

3. Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C).

4. Place beaten eggs into another small bowl. Place panko bread crumbs onto a plate. Dip each sausage-wrapped egg into beaten egg, letting the excess drip off. Roll in bread crumbs and place onto a plate.

5. Spray basket of the air fryer with cooking spray and place eggs into the basket. Do not overcrowd; cook in batches if necessary. Cook for 12 minutes, turning eggs over halfway through. Repeat with remaining eggs. Serve with dipping sauce.
