scotch egg

a hardboiled egg encased in sausage meat, rolled in breadcrumbs and then fried. fried. fried.


scotch egg recipe


6 hard-boiled eggs, well chilled (i try to cook them to just past soft boiled stage, then stick them in the coldest part of the fridge to firm up)

1 pound good quality sausage meat (i used ground turkey meat, seasoned with sage, white pepper, salt and a tiny bit of maple syrup)

1/2 cup AP flour

1-2 eggs, beaten

3/4 cup panko-style bread crumbs

Vegetable oil for frying


peel eggs; divide sausage into 6 portions.

roll each egg in flour then press and shape a portion of the sausage around each egg.

dip sausage-wrapped eggs into beaten egg and roll in panko.

heat oil to 350˚F .

cook each egg for 4-5 minutes (longer if shallow frying--constantly turn the eggs around for best results) or until sausage is cooked and browned.
