     'I like my Scotch Eggs a bit runny in the middle , so you are going to need to get the timing of these spot on.

Another thing I like to do is use different types of sausage's for the meat, or you can make your own sausage meat

There are so many different flavours out there that you can really experiment with these.  ' 

Method :
Boiling the Eggs:
  • Put the four eggs into boiling water and then reduce the heat to a high simmer for 4 minutes or until the eggs are just hard boiled. 
  • You can check this by spinning the egg on a surface , if the egg stands up on it's end it is over cooked. If it almost stands up then it is perfect.
For the Case: 
  • Skin your sausages and squash up into sausage meat in a bowl
  • Add your nutmeg & Chilli's and mix together well
  • Mix in the chopped Chives
For the Outer Crust: 
  • Crack the two eggs into a bowl and mix with a fork
  • Fill another container with Plain Flour
  • Fill a third container with Bread Crumbs
Getting it all together: 
  • Peel the four eggs , then set aside in a fridge to cool down.
  • Heat the Vegetable oil in a pan to 150 c.
  • Put each egg at a time into the flour and coat. 
  • With a floured hand , take about an ounce of sausage meat and make a flat patty in your hand.
  • Put the egg in the patty , and form the meat around the egg , to fully encase it.
  • Roll the Scotch egg in the flour.
  • Next soak it all over in the egg wash.
  • Now put the egg into the bread crumbs and fully coat it.
  • The egg is now ready to go into the oil for about 5 minutes , until the breadcrumbs are golden brown.
  • You can cook the eggs further in an oven for about 10 minutes, to ensure the are fully cooked.

  ' Serve hot , with mature cheese & pickle ... '
