Pub Style Pickled Eggs with Smoked Sausage

While I understand pickled eggs might not be the first thing most folks think of when it comes to using up (and preserving) those dozens of dyed Easter eggs... These Pub Style Pickled Eggs with Smoked Sausage are a very tasty pickley ~grown up~ treat! While I've made Beet Eggs and Mustard Eggs before, they both call for sugar. This recipe does not, you will notice the bite of pungent pickle. They are especially good with, as the name implies, a nice cold beer. Pickled eggs are also good in potato salad and add one more flavorful dimension to deviled eggs:@)

I made a small three egg test batch and only mixed up 1/3 of the brine recipe. 1/3 brine will easily fill a packed quart jar.
The original recipe will fill a gallon jar or three quart jars.

Tip: Slice and boil the sausage for 1 minute, just to remove some of the fat/grease before adding to the pickle jar. As a point of reference, I got about 3 slices per inch of sausage.

On a side note: I am please to announce that ~I think~ I've learned how to add a printable recipe option to my posts? We're going to give it a try anyway:@) If you click on ~printable version~ under the recipe title it should take you to a recipe page you can right click on and print. Please let me know if there are any problems.
