    Wet the eggs with water and roll in the seasoned flour to lightly coat. Wet your hands and divide the sausage into 4 equal-size balls. Flatten each ball into an oval. Cover each egg in sausage, smoothing the seams to encase the egg evenly. Rewet your hands as necessary. Dip each sausage-covered egg in the beaten egg, letting any excess drain off, and then dredge in the bread crumbs.
