Product review: Chrissy’s Cuts sausages (plus recipe inside)

Chrissy’s Cuts sausages are made with quality cuts of meat that come from ethically farmed free-range and grass-fed animals. In addition, they do not contain any fillers, flours, nitrates or additives. I love her tagline “because meat shouldn’t be a mystery”.

Pork shoulder sausages with bacon and maple syrup

The current varieties on offer are beef brisket with smuggled greens and pork shoulder with bacon and maple syrup (killer combo!). I got a pack of the latter to sample. As you can see from the photo below, the ingredients list is super clean.

Pork shoulder sausages with bacon and maple syrup

Instead of just cooking the sausages and throwing them on a pile of coleslaw (my default modus operandi), I decided to use them to make a version of a breakfast that I’ve been digging lately: Scotch eggs. I normally use pork mince and season it with herbs and spices, but these sausages made everything so much easier. This can literally be a 2-ingredient recipe (if you serve it sans dipping sauce), and works beautifully for breakfast, as party/picnic food or as a snack on the go.

  • 1 pack Chrissy's Cuts pork shoulder with bacon and maple syrup
  • 4 large eggs

To serve

  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise homemade if possible
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp chipotle powder


  • Hard-boil the eggs to your liking. Here's my method: put in a pot, cover with cold water, bring to a boil and wait 2 minutes. Turn heat off, leave eggs in the pot for 20 minutes. Drain water off the pot, leave eggs to cool down for approximately 50 minutes.
  • Pre-heat oven to 180°C.
  • Squeeze sausage contents from the casings. Divide in 4 even portions.
  • Extend a portion flat in the palm of your hand, forming a circle. Place an egg on top and wrap it with the meat. Make sure the coating is even and there are no gaps.
  • Put wrapped eggs on a tray and bake for 20-25 minutes or until browned.
  • Mix mayonnaise and chipotle powder.
  • Dip eggs in chipotle mayonnaise and enjoy.
