Smoked Scotch Eggs
These Smoked Scotch Eggs are the most amazing treat.
Sausage Meat (80-100g per egg)
Large Free Range EggsFavorite Rub – we used:
1tsp Coarse Ground Black Pepper
1tsp Garlic Powder
1tsp Onion Powder
1tsp Mustard Powder
1tsp Dried Sage
1tsp Fennel Seeds
Boil the eggs for approx. 6 minutes. This is the hardest part, getting that perfect yolk.
Remove the eggs and put them into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooling process and help shock the shell for easy peeling.
Set aside for at least 30 minutes or until you are ready to use them.
On a sheet of clingfilm your sausage meat and press into a large flat circle, about 5mm thick and big enough to wrap around the egg.
Place the egg into the middle of the sausage meat disc and wrap the egg, using your fingers to smoothe over the joints.
Roll the scotch egg in your hands to ensure that your have a nice round ball.
Sprinkle your rub of choice onto a plate and gently roll each scotch egg in the rub to ensure it is lightly and evenly coated all over.
