The Crumbs on the Table Around a Sausage-wrapped Egg + Chateau d’Aqueria 2019 Tavel Rosé #TurkeyDayRosé #AGrimmThanksgiving #Sponsored
When I started thinking about what to make that used breadcrumbs, I remembered that Hansel and Gretel dropped breadcrumbs in the forest to find their way back home. But I had already planned to make Hansel and Gretel Gingerbreads. So, I thought about my favorite breaded appetizer: a Scotch egg.
- 1 pound ground sausage with no casing (I bought this Sicilian sausage locally at PigWizard), divided into 2 ounce portions
- 8 large boiled eggs, peeled (I used Peking duck eggs from Lake Family Forest Farms, boiled for 2 minutes, then let them cool in the water before peeling)
- 1 large egg, beaten
- ½ cup bread crumbs (I used Italian-style to match the Sicilian sausage flavors)
- Also need for serving: assorted pickles on the side, microgreens for garnish
As I wrote - to the eye - this wine is a gorgeous color. On the palate it was a bone-dry but hefty Rosé that could hold its own against the sausage-wrapped eggs.
