  1. Heat the oven to 400°F/200°C. Prepare a sheet pan with cooking spray.

  3. Lightly whisk the remaining uncooked egg in a bowl and set aside.
  4. Combine the flour, parsley, sage, nutmeg, and crumbled pork rinds.
  5. Dip each sausage-coated egg in the whisked egg then roll them in the flour mixture.
  6. Place the eggs on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until they are dark golden brown. Rotate the eggs several times during baking to ensure even cooking.
  7. Serve with a creamy butter sauce or a little Dijon mustard.
