What you'll need
- 375g Sausage Meat
- 7 Free range eggs (2 eggs for the egg wash)
- Panko Breadcrumbs
- Plain Flour
- 150g Haggis
- Salt & Pepper
FOR THOSE SIGNATURE RUNNY EGGS: Boil a pan of water and lower 5 of the eggs into the pan using a spoon to avoid the eggs cracking. Cook for 5 minutes and then lift out into a bowl of iced water to cool the eggs rapidly. This will allow the shells to come off easier and keep the yolks runny. If you prefer a set yolk cook the eggs for another 3 minutes.
- Crumble the Haggis, mix with the sausage meat, season with salt & pepper and add a dollop of Stokes Cider & Horseradish Mustard.
- Boil a pan of water and lower 4 eggs into the pan using a spoon to avoid the eggs cracking. Cook for 5 minutes and then lift out into a bowl of iced water to cool the eggs rapidly. This will allow the shells to come off easier and keep the yolks runny. If you prefer a set yolk cook the eggs for another 3 minutes.
- Divide the sausage meat mix into 4. Now the clever bit, take a piece of cling film (about 15 cm) and dust with flour. Place one piece of the sausage meat on the cling film and cover with another sheet of cling film the same size. Using the palm of your hand press down the sausage meat so it starts to spread out to about the size of your hand and approximately 1cm thick. Remove the top sheet of clingfilm and place 1 egg in the centre. Using the edges of the clingfilm lift the sausage meat so it goes around the egg like a blanket. Use the clingfilm to wrap the egg and this will make it easier to shape the scotch egg round.
- Repeat for the other eggs and once all wrapped, chill in the fridge for 20 minutes. This will make it easier to breadcrumb the eggs later.
- Beat the remaining 2 eggs with a generous dash of milk to make the egg wash. Remove the clingfilm and pass each Scotch Egg through flour, then egg and finally the breadcrumbs.
- For best results deep fry the Scotch eggs for 11-12 minutes at 160c.
- Alternatively, you can spray with veg oil and cook then in a hot oven (about 200c) for 30-35 minutes until golden.
- Whilst the Scotch Eggs are cooking, mix 2 tablespoons of Real Mayonnaise with 1 teaspoon of Classic English Mustard or Cider and Horseradish Mustard for a tangy dip.
