Scotch Egg

Phew, this post is a bit long and it would feel like you are scrolling forever to get to the end.  I tried to put the photos side by side but my html coding is not up to scratch as yet, so the photos were all over the place :-). 

Last week, we had a bit of a food sesh at a friend's house and I made this modified version of the scotch egg.  The original recipe found here did not have cayenne, onions or stock powder. I added these because in Sierra Leone, we add chili and stock to all savory recipes.  Yes, I know, it's British and I am not trying to claim it, but I believe I have done a pretty good job here.

The ingredients I used are:
16 eggs (2 for egg wash), 500 gms each of pork sausages and pork mince, 11/2 tsps stock powder, 1/2 tsp cayenne, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1 tbs english mustard, a handful of chives and parsley, 1 medium sized onion, 1 cup flour (spread on a tray)  2 cups bread crumbs (spread on a tray), 1/2 cup milk, vegetable oil for frying

Wash and roughly chop onion, chives and parsley, then pulse in a food processor .
Remove skin from sausages, add to the food processor with the mince, mustard, cayenne, black pepper and stock powder.
Pulse to combine (takes about two minutes)
Divide mixture into equal parts, cover with clean kitchen towel.
Now, boil eggs for 5 minutes, remove and pop straight into iced cold water to stop the cooking process, then gently peel.
Wrap eggs in sausage patty
 Roll in flour
Then in egg wash (I used two eggs and 1/2 cup milk)
Then in bread crumbs
Over high heat, fry in hot oil till it's golden brown
Bake in preheated (180C) oven for 10 minutes to cook the meat properly
Cool for 5 minutes, cut and serve. Enjoy.
