Scotch Egg.....

If, like me, you sometimes dislike the dryness of a bought Scotch Egg the you may want to have a go at making your own. The following quantity will make 2 substantial eggs, and simply need a salad accompaniment to satisfy your hunger!

Ingredients:

500g Sausage meat.
2 Eggs, boiled for 7 mins or so.
Plain Flour.
1 raw Egg, whisked and seasoned.
4/5 slices of bread, made into breadcrumbs.
50g finely grated cheese blended with breadcrumbs.
Salt & Pepper.
Deep Fat Fryer.

Method:

1. Cut Sausage meat into 2 pieces, and form into oval shapes.
2. When the eggs are cool just roll in some seasoned plain flour.
3. Put each egg at the centre of the sausage meat and gradually work the
meat around the egg until well sealed.
4. Put the coated eggs on some kitchen roll and refrigerate for 30mins until firm.
5. Prepare three shallow bowls/plates - one with seasoned plain flour, one with
the beaten raw egg, and one with the breadcrumbs.
6. Heat fat in fryer to 160C.
7. Dip each coated egg into the flour, then immediately into the egg.
Then into the breadcrumbs until completely covered and straight into the fryer.
You need "soft hands".
8. Cook in the oil until golden brown and remove onto kitchen roll.
9. The eggs can be eaten warm or cool and are best eaten within 3/4 days.

Enjoy!:thumb:

It is lucky that fat and cholesterol is good for us, as evidenced by the population of the South of France - much healthier than the UK folk who consume 6x the amount of refined sugar products!

Nothing worse than low fat foods laden with sugar or low sugar foods full of artifical sweeteners:)

Delicious. But you can make this the vegetarian way too. Just miss out the eggs and sausagemeat.

But what do you do with a pile of deep fried breadcrumbs? You could always sprinkle them on a salad, I suppose.

If your wife is one of the semi-vegetarians (fishetarian) you could always use smoked mackerel instead of sausagemeat!

But you are still left with the egg bit in the middle. I suppose a brussels sprout would replace it ok.

"Scotch" and "Vegetarian" are just not words that go together......

Anyway, back to the fried breadcrumbs........................

That's a lot more sausagemeat than I have seen in other recipes.

As long as the meat is at, or close to, room temperature, you can also bake Scotch eggs. The Japanese version (no, really!) doesn't use breadcrumbs, but that's straying a bit too far from the goodness we Brits know and love.

Sounds yum. I need eggs and sausage from the store, and I only buy with a meal in mind. I think I have found it, well part of it.

Either a potato salad (with onion, peas and mayonnaise) or a watercress and cucumber salad (in vinaigrette) would go well!

They sound like good suggestions. I would also add another Scotch egg to keep the other one company.
