Flour, for Dredging
1 Egg, Raw
1 C/60g (Approx.) Fine Dry Breadcrumbs
Handful Fresh Parsley, Chopped
Handful Parmesan Cheese, Finely Grated
1 Pkg Johnsonville Lightly Seasoned Ground Sausage
4 Large Medium-Boiled Eggs, Peeled
Peanut or Grapeseed Oil, for Frying
1. Pour about ½ C (60g) flour onto a plate.
2. Beat the raw egg in a small bowl.
3. Mix the breadcrumbs, parsley, and Parmesan and spread on another plate.
4. Divide the sausage meat into four equal parts.
5. Working one boiled egg at a time, dip it in the flour to cover, then shake off any excess.
6. Flatten a section of sausage meat in the palm of the hand, lay the egg in it, then wrap around like a blanket, eventually smoothing it out so that the egg has an even “shell” of sausage all around it.
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 with the remaining eggs.
8. Heat about two inches of oil in a small saucepan with a rip of bread in it. When the bread sizzles, remove it, and keep the temperature of the oil steady.
9. Take a sausage-wrapped egg and dip it first in the beaten egg, then in the breadcrumb mixture to coat completely. Lower it on a slotted spoon into the oil and cook, turning, until the sausage meat is completely cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove with the slotted spoon and dab with paper towel to dry, then continue with the remaining eggs.
Cut in half to serve warm or at room temperature, with or without salad, perhaps with pickles and cheese, and definitely some cold beer.
Brie and Apple Tart Ingredients:
1 225g Sheet Butter Puff Pastry, Thawed and Laid Flat
1 Tub Spreadable Brie, Softened
2 to 3 Medium Apples, Unpeeled (Royal Gala or Granny Smith)
2 Tbsp Sugar
Rosemary Syrup Ingredients:
2 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tbsp Water
Lemon Juice, Freshly Squeezed1-2 Tsp Rosemary, Finely Chopped (More for Scattering)
Brie and Apple Tart Directions:
Heat the oven to 375°F.
Lay the pastry on a baking sheet, still on its paper. Spread the surface generously with the softened brie. Leave the apples unpeeled and cut into 4 sections, similar to cutting the cheeks of mangos. Thinly slice the apples, chopping until you have enough to cover the pastry. Slightly overlapping, arrange the apples on top of ng the brie, and finish by sprinkling the apples with sugar. Bake until the pastry is puffed up and golden and the apples are soft, about 25-30 minutes.
While the tart bakes, put the syrup ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer until the syrup coats a spoon, about 10 minutes, depending on how fast you’re boiling. Keep an eye on it.
Remove the tart from the oven. Drizzle the syrup over the tart using a spoon. Cut into little squares, and serve!

4. Beat the egg whites to a soft peak in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or in a bowl using a handheld electric mixer, then add the nuts. Next, add cinnamon, honey, and the caramel extract. Mix to incorporate and use a flat spatula to transfer the contents of the bowl to a large pot. Cook on stove top over low heat for 5-10 minutes to dry the dough out a bit.

6. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the cookies turn golden brown. Once they look crisp, let them rest on a cooling rack, or forget that and eat them right away, while they are still hot, with milk.
7. Use cookie icing, scribbler gels and décor to decorate the cookies.
