  2. Place 10 of the eggs into boiling water, bring to the boil again and cook for 4 minutes before placing them immediately into cold water to stop them cooking any longer.
  3. Whilst the eggs are cooking remove the skins from the sausages then mix the meat with the bacon, spring onions and cheese thoroughly using your hands.
  4. Peel the eggs, beat the remaining 2 in a bowl and scatter the oat bran out on a plate ready to coat the eggs.
  5. Shape the meat around each egg (don’t make them too thick) before rolling them in the beaten egg then the oat bran before placing in a baking tray or on a grill tray and cooking in the oven for 30 minutes or until cooked.
