The second thing we cooked on Sunday that we'd never made before was Scotch Eggs. Now, I'm cheating a little on the challenge here, as I don't have a recipe from my cookbook shelf for this, so we sort of looked up several online to get the basic idea, then made up our own!
|I swear that gin is doing its best to be in all my Cookbook challenge photos!|
We only boiled our eggs for 4 minutes, as we prefer them soft boiled, and figured they'd cook a bit in the fryer too, so we didn't want to overdo it. Most of the recipes we'd looked up involved adding all sorts of exciting extras to the sausage meat; we stayed simple, and seasoned it with salt, black pepper and dried mixed herbs.
|I am amazed that I managed to keep the flour away from my clothes this time|
Sausagemeat is far worse to handle than minced meat, so making up the Scotch Eggs was less entertaining than forming burger patties.
|There's that gin bottle again...|
|I love coating stuff with breadcrumbs|
|But you don't half get messy doing it.|
