How to Make Scotch Egg

Step-by-Step

  1. Place the eggs, still in their shells, in a pan of cold salted water. Place over a high heat and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to simmer for exactly nine minutes. Drain and cool the eggs under cold running water, then peel.
  2. Add to a bowl, pork with the thyme, parsley, onion, salt & pepper in a bowl. Mix well.
  3. Divide the sausage meat mixture into six and flatten each out on a clean surface into ovals.
  4. Place each egg onto a sausage meat oval, then wrap the sausage meat around each egg. Make sure the coating is smooth and completely covers each egg.
  5. Roll sausage-coated egg in flour, the dip in the beaten egg, rolling to coat completely, next dip and roll into the breadcrumbs to completely cover.
  6. Heat the oil in a deep heavy-bottomed pan over medium high. Fry eggs turning to brown on all sides, 5 or so minutes per side.
  7. Carefully remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel. Cool and serve.
