Scotch Eggs

SCOTCH EGGS
4 eggs
seasoned flour
half pound pork sausagemeat
Dried or fresh sage to flavour sausagemeat, as required - this is not essential, but we like it in our family!
Salt/pepper to taste
lightly beaten egg
toasted breadcrumbs (make your own, shop ones are not the same)

Hardboil and then cool eggs. Peel. Roll eggs in seasoned flour and divide the meat/herb/seasoned mix into equal portions and roll each into an oblong, big enough to cover one egg. Place egg in middle of mix and mould the meat around the egg - check there are no cracks in the mixture, coat with egg and roll in the breadcrubs. Deep fry in hot oil for 4-5 minutes. Drain. Best eaten cold.

I have often used quail eggs for slightly more formal eating - to make the hearty picnic sized Scotch eggs into something a little more dainty!

YUM! These sound wonderful. Do you serve them as breakfast food? I could see these on an appetizer tray too. I will have to try these out.

No, Alix - not for breakfast.... they are an old Scottish picnic dish... eaten cold. You often get them in pubs for lunch, served with a salad.

Try them with the smaller quail eggs, they make a nice hors d'oeuvre :D

Quail eggs? Don't know that I could find those. I will definitely try them out for our next party though.

LOL mudbug. I do entertain quite a bit. Its usually pretty informal though. The next big bash will be a family celebration on Dec 11th. Otherwise it is just friends coming over and hanging out. You are always welcome. Come on up!

I can't remember the source of the saying but it goes something like, "Mine is the sort of place where you walk in and feel comfortable taking off your shoes and staying a while." That is how we like our place to be.

I had these a lonnnnnnng time ago, and they were served with a white sauce over them. Don't think it was hollandaise, that's really all I remember except how good they were. Is there a traditional sauce that they are served with?




& thanks for sharing the recipe!

They aren't normally served with a sauce. I have seen them served with gravy which is horrid, in my opinion! Gravy and sausage is ok, but when it hits the egg, yucko!

You can eat them with English pickles like Branston or Piccallilli, but have never heard of them with a sauce like you describe, wasabi woman. Sand definately!!!!
