SCOTCH EGGS

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 5
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 10 hard boiled eggs
  • Flour for dusting
  • 2 pounds ground pork sausage or homemade sausage
  • 1 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs or Panko
  • 2 tsp. Mace
  • 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • Oil for deep frying - preferably Peanut oil as the smoke point is higher, and it does not turn Trans-Fat 'Toxic' at 275 like Canola oil.

Directions

  • Preheat the Deep-Fryer to 350 degrees
  • Remove the shells from the chilled hard-boiled eggs, dry them with a paper towel if necessary and dust with flour. Set aside.
  • Roll out the sausage on a flat surface.
  • In a shallow bowl, mix the breadcrumbs with the mace, salt and pepper.
  • Take each hard-boiled egg wrap it in the sausage meat until it is completely covered.(The meat should be about 1/2 inch thick around each egg.)
  • Dip each Sausage wrapped egg in the beaten eggs then roll it in the breadcrumb mixture.
  • When all the eggs have been prepared this way, deep fry the eggs, one or 2 at a time, until golden brown.

Notes

These are a great treat for May Day/Beltaine or Easter/Ostara since we all have a million easter eggs lying around... but I would not eat them more often than that, they are pretty high on the Fat/Cholesterol list. You could use ground Turkey, Chicken, Lamb, or Goat instead of Pork - but we ARE deep frying folks! In the picture, I have covered them with a Sauce Moutarde, which is simply a Hollandaise with Dijon whisked in at the end.
