Fresh Free Range Eggs

Beaten Egg Wash for Dipping

Good Quality Free Range Pork Sausagemeat

Rubbed Sage


Sunflower Oil

Portable and delicious, no party is complete without a good homemade scotch egg. To simplify the method, we oven bake ours and go for cricket ball sizing. Watch the boys come bowling in when you present these beauties!

  1. Lightly boil your eggs (5 mins or ask Delia, she knows!) cool and remove shells.
  2. Roll out a circle of sausagemeat on a floured board, enough to cover one egg. Sprinkle with a little rubbed sage.
  3. Dip peeled egg in beaten egg wash. Wrap meat around egg to create a firm ball. Dip ball in egg wash and roll in the breadcrumbs, oats and black pepper mix. Repeat till all eggs are thoroughly scotched!
  4. Grease a baking tin with sunflower oil to prevent sticking, place on the scotch eggs and roast for 30-40 mins in a medium oven turning to get an even colour… not too high as you don’t want to burn them!
