Pork and mustard Scotch eggs

makes: 4 Scotch eggs
preparation time: 20 mins to prepare and 20 mins to cook, 30 mins to cool
calories per serving: 575 calories / serving


– 4 eggs, plus 1 egg white

– 1 x 400g pack of pork sausages

– 1 tbsp thyme leaves, chopped

– 1 tbsp chives, snipped

– 1 tbsp English mustard

– 2 tbsp plain flour, plus extra for dusting

– 25g breadcrumbs

– 25g fresh breadcrumbs

– 1 litre vegetable oil

1. Put the eggs into a pan of boiling water, ensuring they are fully covered. Cook for 6 minutes then blanch in ice-cold water.

2. Squeeze the sausage meat out of the skins and into a bowl. Mix in the herbs and mustard.

3. Carefully remove the shell from the eggs. Line up 3 bowls. In one put flour, in another put lightly whisked egg white, and in the third put the golden and fresh breadcrumbs mixed together.

4. Dust an egg in flour, then take a handful of sausage meat and pat into your hand. Place the egg on top and mould the sausage meat around the egg until covered in an even layer. Shape into a ball.

5. Coat the ball in flour, dip in egg white then fully coat with breadcrumbs. Repeat with the remaining eggs.

6. Heat the oil in a small saucepan to medium-hot, or until breadcrumbs dropped in sizzle on contact with the oil. Carefully lower each Scotch egg into the oil and cook for 6 minutes, or until golden brown. It’s best to cook no more than two at a time.

7. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Leave to cool before serving.
