This isn’t something I usually crave but once in awhile I do crave scotch eggs and because it is such an easy and fun dish to prepare, I decided to share this recipe here. This recipe serves 7, but feel free to double/triple the measurements for more!
- 454g sausage meat
- 7 large eggs (boiled)
- 1 large egg (lightly beaten)
- All-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon chilli powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Step 1: In a bowl, mix the sausage meat, chilli powder and nutmeg together.
Step 2: Flatten a generous amount of sausage meat on your hand (it is best to do this with your hands wet to avoid any stickiness). Then ensure that the egg is completely covered with the meat.
Step 3: Coat the sausage meat with some all-purpose flour, dip this in the beaten egg and then fully cover this with breadcrumbs.
Step 4: Heat some oil in a deep fryer/deep frying pan to 160oC. Cook the scotch egg for about 5-10 minutes or until you get your desired colour. Gently turn the scotch egg while it’s cooking to ensure it is evenly cooked
Step 5: Allow to cool for about 2 minutes before serving
