Scotch Eggs!

The kids and I had loads of fun this weekend, cooking up brunch for their visiting pals. Rather than the usual - which in our case tends to be omelets, smoked salmon and bagels or dosas and chutney - we went with scotch eggs, vegetable soup and garlic bread. A little eclectic, but it worked.

Scotch Eggs Ingredients:
Eight hard boiled eggs
Two uncooked eggs
One and half pounds ground turkey meat
One small chopped onion
One sprig parsley
Four tablespoons flour
Breadcrumbs
Pepper to taste
2 teaspoons salt
Oil to fry
  • Shell hard boiled eggs - get the kids to do this! Roll them in flour seasoned slightly with a pinch or two of salt and pepper
  • Finely chop the onions and the parsley. Mix it into the minced meat with salt and pepper
  • Coat the eggs with the meat mixture so that the eggs are not visible. Your goal should be to have at least a couple of millimeters of meat all around the egg
  • Beat the uncooked eggs in a separate bowl
  • Roll the meat-covered egg with the raw egg, then coat in breadcrumbs
  • Heat the oil on a medium flame, then pop in the coated eggs
  • Let the coated eggs cook to a nice golden brown
  • Cut the eggs in half and set in a nice pattern, either on lettuce or with parsley springs
  • The kids will wold them down! They didn't even ask for ketchup!! I had forgotten to take pictures before the meal, hence the lonely eggs shown in the picture above!
