Fried Sausage Wrapped Hard Boiled Eggs

Photo and recipe

6 hard-boiled eggs, well chilled (I try to cook them to just past soft boiled stage, then stick them in the coldest part of the fridge to firm up)
1 pound good quality sausage meat (I used ground turkey meat, seasoned with sage, white pepper, salt and a tiny bit of maple syrup)
1/2 cup AP flour
1-2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup panko-style bread crumbs
Vegetable oil for frying
Peel eggs; divide sausage into 6 portions.
Roll each egg in flour then press and shape a portion of the sausage around each egg.
Dip sausage-wrapped eggs into beaten egg and roll in panko.
heat oil to 350˚F .
Cook each egg for 4-5 minutes (longer if shallow frying–constantly turn the eggs around for best results) or until sausage is cooked and browned.
Can be served cold
