- 1 pound bulk pork sausage
- 6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled
- 1 cup fine dry bread crumbs (purchased or home-made, plain or seasoned)

Gather the ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Place a rack in a shallow baking pan.
On a sheet of waxed paper, divide the sausage into 6 equal portions; wrap 1 portion around each egg.
In a bowl, whisk the egg with mustard and water.
Roll each wrapped egg in bread crumbs.
Then, dip the wrapped eggs in the beaten egg mixture. Roll in the bread crumbs again, and place in the prepared baking pan.
