Scotch eggs are probably one of the greasiest meals we have and hence we only have this meal one or two times a year. It’s also one of the fiddliest meals and makes a lot of mess.
6 eggs hard boiled de-shelled
454g (1lb) of sausage meat
Bread crumbs of 4 slices in a bowl
1 egg lightly beaten with a touch of water in another bowl
Plain flour in another bowl
Roll an egg in the flour. Wrap it in sausage meat. Dip it in the egg. Roll it in bread crumbs. Repeat for all the other eggs.
Deep fry all the eggs for as long as possible so as to cook the sausage meat, but not burn the Scotch egg.
We tend to serve with chips, peas, sweet corn, beans and ketchup.
