Trying new recipes are fun and an insight to different cultures, especially if it’s a recipe from another country. It’s a way of trying a different cuisine from some place you want to travel to but can’t. So here is Yummy Scotch Eggs that unlike its name originated from England.
So the earliest that this awesome dish’s name was discovered was around about the early 1800’s but as a main dish served with delicious gravy but not with bread crumbs. The bread crumb crust comes later. When the dish was actually created is a bit unknown since as years go by some of the history kind of disappears but I’m not really worried about when it was created. I’m just glad that it was created.
Now for those who don’t know what Scotch eggs recipe are they are a boiled egg, wrapped in a sausage ball, coated in breadcrumb, and then fried. Now some recipes call for regular or flavored bread crumbs. I used Panko because it gave an awesome crunch to this already great easy dish. Also, even though it calls for regular ground sausage you could switch it up by using different flavors like hot and spicy, sage, maple, or turkey. Don’t be afraid to modify the recipe right off the bat to your liking.
The recipe takes time to make but, it is worth it. The flavor is enjoyable and the texture is awesome. The family ate the eggs up quickly with Baby Ray’s Secret Sauce. It gave it extra zing to the egg when dipped in it. It is wonderful for lunch. breakfast, on the go snack, or as a picnic dish. Try it and enjoy.
Yummy Scotch Eggs Recipe:
12 eggs, boiled and peeled
2 pounds of ground breakfast sausage, any flavor you like.
Cut into 12 equal pieces.
½ cup of flour
4 eggs, beaten
1 -½ cups of bread crumbs, any flavor
Or panko crumbs
Vegetable or Canola oil, for frying
Eat oil in a large pan to about medium to medium high heat. Take an egg roll it in flour (will help the sausage stick to the egg). Take a piece of sausage, flatten it in your hand then put the egg in the middle and wrap the sausage around it. Then roll it around in your hand to make it shape like the egg. Roll it in your crumbs and set to the side. Do the same with the other eggs. Then put 3 – 4 in the hot oil and fry to light to medium golden brown on all sides (about 4 minutes on each side). Take them out of oil and set on a paper towel covered plate to drain oil. When all are done serve warm or cool with whatever sauce you like.
This dish paired with French fries, mashed potatoes, rice dish, or any side is a delicious meal that the family will love. Check out these other awesome recipes: French Dip Crescents, Lovely Momma’s Pinto Beans, or Jalapeño Popper Themed Dinner.
