Here's a Vegetarian version of Scotch Eggs. I'm making them for Thanksgiving this year along with Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie.
The London department store Fortnum & Mason claims to have invented Scotch eggs in 1738.
A Scotch Egg consists of a Hard Boiled Egg wrapped in Sausage Meat, Coated in Bread Crumbs and Baked or Deep Fried. They are often served with a Mustard Sauce or Hot Sauce.
They are a Common Picnic Food in the United Kingdom. They are available in Super Markets, Corner Shops, Pubs and Motorway Service Stations.
Here's what you'll need:
A Large Cast Iron Skillet or Dutch Oven.
Vegetable Oil, enough to Deep Fry the Eggs.
1lb. of Vegetarian Sausage
6 Hard Boiled Eggs
1/2 C Flour ( in a small bowl)
1 Egg, beaten ( in a small bowl)
Breadcrumbs ( in a small bowl)
Shape Sausage into a Flat Round in the Palm of your Hand to wrap around and completely cover each Egg.
Heat Oil in the Skillet or Dutch Oven.
Dip each Egg in the following order:
Fry in Oil until Golden Brown.
Remove to Paper Towels to drain.
Serve Cold with Mustard Sauce:
In a small serving bowl:
1 C Mayonnaise
6 TBS Stone Ground Mustard
4 TBS Fresh Lemon Juice (about 2 Lemons)
Peace in the Kitchen!
