ULTIMATE YOLK PORN SCOTCH EGGS

To me, scotch eggs are such a home comfort! But shop bought, they usually use cheap meat, unnecessary ingredients and aren’t nearly as fresh as the ones I’ve cooked up. High in protein, low in carbs these babies are great as snacks or as part of a meal.

INGREDIENTS
  • 200g high quality sausage meat (this can be bought as such, or squeezed out of sausages) I used Heck fair & square sausage meat
  • 2 free-range medium sized eggs
  • Salt & pepper
  • 50g buckwheat or gram (chickpea) flour (both of these are gluten free)
  • 2tsp coconut oil

Optional flavour additions:

  • Green or red pesto
  • Paprika & cayenne pepper
  • Tomato puree
  • Bacon jam (for a full English scotch egg!)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Boil a pan of water, once at a rolling boil reduce temperature and gently pop the eggs into the pan. Based on a medium sized egg and 2 in the pan they should take 5-7 minutes. If you would like hard yolk, continue boiling for 8-9 minutes.
  2. Once cooked, drain water and immediately fill the pan with cold water to cool the eggs down.
  3. Once cool, peel each egg.
  4. Next, take the sausage meat & half it. Using one half, flatten with your hands until roughly 1cm thick. Whilst in the palm of your hand, place the egg on top and start to mould the meat around the egg. I find this works for two thirds of the egg, adding the extra meat to the other side.
  5. Once all of the egg is covered, sprinkle the flour onto a plate and add seasonings, rolling the egg in flour. Repeat on second egg.
  6. Heat oil in frying pan and once hot, place your egg in and roll around ensuring it cooks evenly.
  7. This should take 8-10 minutes. Once golden brown, move egg to kitchen roll and dab any excess oil.
  8. Leave to cool slightly before cutting in half.
  9. Serve with salad, sweet potato chips, dip or enjoy just as it is!

Tips: if you fancy mixing up the flavours, you can add a thin layer of pesto/tomato puree/bacon jam to the egg before adding the meat or flavour the flour with herbs /spices.
