Di­vide the sausage meat into six equal pieces and pat into rounds. Sprin­kle flour on a plate, sea­son, then dip each egg in the flour and cover with sausage meat. Flour again, dip in a beaten egg and roll in the bread­crumbs. Heat the veg­etable oil in a deep pan un­til it reaches 180°C on a sugar ther­mome­ter, or un­til a bread­crumb siz­zles and turns brown when dropped in the oil. Cook two eggs at a time for 6-8 mins un­til golden brown. Wait for the oil to re­heat be­fore cook­ing the next batch of eggs. Drain with a slot­ted spoon onto a pa­per towel. Cut into halves and serve with wa­ter­cress or pars­ley to gar­nish.
