Baked Scotch Eggs

Baked Scotch Eggs

Baked Scotch Eggs – Hard-boiled egg  wrapped in a Flavorful Spicy Ground beef or Sausage  , rolled in delicious crunchy case – Baked or Fried to Perfection ! Big, meaty and satisfying,  Great as an appetizer, for brunch , breakfast or picnic.

.

What can I say about these scotch eggs? The first time I made these was in my Home economics class, without a recipe, and to cut a long story short- it was a tasty mess!  It fell apart during the cooking process, the up side? I got make a delicious sandwich out of it and still do! It makes for an amazing sandwich with hot sauce and a salad on the side .

These appetizing  scotch eggs originated in London –created by Fortnum and Masons .They were meant to be portable snacks, for long journeys. Due to it’s popularity they have quickly become a staple in pubs and restaurant menus. In fact , it was the first thing I  tried  while visiting London- I do prefer the homemade version though. 

I get to play around with it and make it sometimes with less guilt- Like Baking and using not so fatty meat.

At first glance you would think are complicated – wrong! They are ridiculously easy to make. All you need is sausage meat, boiled eggs and seasoned breadcrumbs .For added flavor, include minced garlic and parsley. Omit these spices or switch out the spices for more to suit your taste buds.

I always like to offer up more options ,  so here  you have the baked scotch eggs and Fried – both taste great!

You may also serve with a good dipping sauce  and or pickles  

Enjoy!

 

Tips and Notes

  1. Use 4 to 5 large Eggs if  Medium is not available .

  2. When making eggs for scotch  egg it’s best to let them cook about 1-2 minutes less than your desired outcome.  Over cooked eggs  will leave you with a less appetizing gray ring around the yolk- No Bueno!

  3. For the super crispy exterior use panko (Japanese bread crumbs)  where available. If not Seasoned bread crumbs would do just fine.

  4. If don’t have seasoned bread crumbs then make your own bread crumbs garlic, onion, parsley  and ground pepper

  5. I usually make scotch  eggs with a variety of  ground meat ( Sausage, chicken , beef ).  However, you may have to adjust seasonings depending on  personal preference.

  6. Use this recipe as a base and go from there
