Let's cook an Easter recipe. I'm not Christian, but making seasonal recipes makes me really look forward to spring.
Try to get the middle of the yolk to be half-boiled.

Serves 4 Prep: 20 min Cook: 20 min

Ingredients

Eggs 4
Salt a pinch
Minced pork (minced beef is also good) 500g
Salt 1/2 tsp
Pepper a pinch
Dried sage 1 tsp
Breadcrumbs 4 tbsp
Milk 2 tbsp
Egg 1
Plain flour 1 tbsp
Egg 1
Breadcrumbs 100g
Vegetable oil for deep frying as needed
A.Mayonnaise 100g
A.Cornichons (chopped) 30g
A.Flat parsley (chopped) 3 tbsp
A.Horseradish 2 tsp
A.Japanese soy sauce 1 tsp
Salt & pepper a pinch

Method

1
Put 4 eggs and salt into a milk pan and pour over boiling water.
2
On a low heat for the first 1 or 2 minutes, roll the eggs over in the water with a fork - this gets the yolk into the centre.
3
After 8 minutes boiling, put the eggs into cold water and peel the shell in the water (when the egg is cold, it firms it up, making the next steps easier).
4
Put the minced meat, salt & pepper, sage, breadcrumbs, milk and one new egg into a bowl and mix thoroughly.
5
Divide this mixture into 4. Put 1 part onto your palm and flatten, place one boiled egg in the centre. Wrap the mince around the egg, taking care to avoid air being trapped.
6
Making the sauce: put all the A ingredients together in a bowl and season to taste with salt & pepper.
7
Put flour over the eggs then rub to cover finely. Then dip into beaten egg before rolling in breadcrumbs. Repeat with all the eggs.
8
Heat the oil to medium and deep fry the scotch eggs for 7-8 minutes until nicely browned. Keep stirring. Drain well on kitchen paper and cut in half. Serve alongside the sauce.

Tips & Note

Tip: when boiled eggs reach room temperature, they are easier to remove the shell. Find your best method for boiling eggs depending on your cooker. Mine took 8 minutes to get the perfect boiled egg for this recipe. Egg recipes are essential at Easter time. British people would suggest to use sausage meat instead of minced meat but I think it's quite easily available and affordable to use minced meat to make the proper Scotch egg shape.
