Scotch Eggs

So, I have to say I really like the scotch eggs. I am an egg lovers, anything got to do with eggs gets my vote. I wouldn't categorise this recipe as hard/difficult. It may be a bit tedious but no way this recipe will fail you. Another thing that I like about this recipe is the fresh white breadcrumbs used. It is so crispy and oil free.

In short this is a simple delicious meal with some everyday ingredients

In order to put this scotch eggs together, you will need:
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 medium brown onion, finely chopped
  • 2 rashers rindless bacon, finely chopped (I use 150g diced bacon)
  • 500g pork mince
  • 1-2 tbsp dried flakes parsley or 1/3 cup continental parsley, chopped
  • Salt
  • Ground Black Pepper
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, peeled
  • 1/3 cup plain flour
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh white breadcrumbs (For DIY fresh white breadcrumbs CLICK HERE)
  • Olive oil spray
  1. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and bacon. Cook for 3 minutes or until onion is soft. Transfer to a bowl and cool. 
  2. Then, add in mince, parsley, salt and ground black pepper. Mix until well combined.
  3. Preheat oven to 180 degree celcius. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Divide mince mixture into 4 portions. Shape a portion of mince around each hard boiled egg and place a plate.
  4. Lightly coat with flour, egg (whisked) and breadcrumbs. 
  5. Put onto prepared tray. Spray with olive oil. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until firm to touch and mince is cooked through.
  6. Serve with salad. For this mreal I served with Rustic Russian Salad.
