Homemade Scotch Eggs

No comments:
Scotch eggs are one of my all time favourite treats. They are not the healthiest thing but they are one of the tastiest.

They are also pretty easy to make, you just have to organise your work bench before you get started. I find these huge homemade scotch eggs serve 6 with a salad as half a scotch egg is pretty large and filling!

For three large tasty scotch eggs you will need... 
5 sausages (I picked leek and pork but you can pick any flavour you fancy)
3 eggs
2 beaten eggs
handful of flour
chopped parsley
chopped chives
pinch of mustard powder
a good pinch of pepper and salt
a good grating of nutmeg 
bread crumbs (i used the ones you can buy in the supermarket but you can make your own with stale bread)

First get all of your sausage meat out of their casings, mix in the herbs, salt and pepper, mustard powder.. 

and nutmeg.

Then get three plates ready, one with your bread crumbs..

one with your two beaten eggs..

and your flour.

Then set about preparing your eggs. put three eggs into a pan of cold water and bring to boil - let them boil for 4 minutes (this keeps your eggs soft and gooey inside and just firm enough to peel)

Then place them into a bowl of cold water to cool down.

Then, very delicately peel your eggs - this can have mixed results when your eggs are soft, just make sure you try not to split the yolk, you can cobble together your egg when you wrap it in the sausage meat.

Then divide your seasoned sausage meat into three balls. 

flatten them out and then wrap them around your soft egg - again carefully. then roll it in flour..

in the egg wash

and finally the bread crumbs.

Heat up your vegetable oil until then you throw a cube of bread it in turns golden within a minute. This doesn't take long and never take your eyes off a pan of oil.

put each one in the pan for 5 minutes and then they should like this. Homemade scotch eggs turn a dark brown as apposed to the yellow golden you see in shops. Do don't be alarmed by the colour, they are even tasty than the shop bought version! ( and more rustic!)

Then tuck in..

A delicious treat.
