Scotch Eggs instructions

  1. Boil the eggs! Place them in a pan of boiling water for 3 minutes. Feel free to cook them longer or shorter if you enjoy a runny egg or not! Take them out of the water and put them directly into a bowl of cold ice water. Once cool, peel them and place them aside..
  2. Mix the sausage meat with the thyme, parsley and onion. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the meat into four sections..
  3. Place the flour on a plate, put the beaten egg in a bowl, and place the breadcrumbs on a plate..
  4. Dip the boiled egg into flour, covering completely. Wrap it in the sausage meat. Do this by flattening the sausage meat and slowly working it around the egg - be careful not to squeeze to hard!.
  5. Dip this sausage meat covered egg into the beaten egg, rolling to completely cover it. Then dip it into the breadcrumbs and completely cover..
  6. Repeat steps 3-5 for all boiled eggs!.
  7. Heat the oil in a deep heavy-bottom pan. To test if it is warm enough, throw a single breadcrumb into the oil and see if it sizzles and browns. If so, its ready! (and HOT, be careful :D).
  8. Place each scotch egg into the oil and fry so that it is brown and crispy on all edges - should take about 2-3minutes of continuously rotating the scotch egg. Then turn the heat down on the pan, and let it sit and fry for another 8 or so minutes, or until the whole scotch golden and crisp and the sausage meat is completely cooked..
  9. Enjoy!.
