Hello!! from my mama’s kitchen to your kitchen….
We are making Scotch eggs today…… yay!!!
Scotch eggs are a common picnic food. Several local variations exist in different parts of the world.
I love this snack ( i have fun memories), I love eggs too and Scotch Egg is simply an interesting way to enjoy eggs.
I remember my favorite part whenever my mum made this, was rolling the eggs in the bread crumbs…
The Nigerian Scotch Egg is the Scottish version of the scotch egg, with a little twist.
Okay, let’s get to this yummy recipe already…..

Boil and peel the eggs. set this aside.
Now take some of the minced meat and flatten it on your palm or on a flat surface.
Roll the hard boiled egg on the flour and then place it on the flattened meat on your other palm. Coat each egg with sausage meat and very little flour if meat is sticking to the hands
Roll the meat over the egg , until the egg is completely covered with the sausage meat.
Break the raw egg, whisk it and set aside.
Now deep the meat covered egg into the raw egg, making sure that the meat covered egg is covered with the raw egg.
Then dip the egg covered in sausage into the bowl with the breadcrumbs and roll the egg in it, until the egg is completely covered with the bread crumbs.
Repeat the exact process for the remaining eggs and set aside.
Now, heat up the vegetable oil on medium heat and and fry the scotch eggs in hot oil till brown and crisp allowing sufficient time for sausage meat to cook through.

I shall put up a homemade dried “bread crumbs” recipe for your scotch egg in the next post … so look out for that….
- Boil the eggs, then quickly scoop into iced water. Soft or hard boil them according to your preference.
- Pour the oil in a deep, heavy-based pan, to no more than one third full.
- Use a frying basket if you have one and cook for 5 – 10 min depending on the size of the Scotch egg.
- Turn gently, using a slotted spoon, to cook and color evenly.
alternatively, you could also get quality sausage meat by buying some really lovely sausages, slit them open, then squeeze out the meat.
