Is it hard find some tasty meal on the go? Pack the mealbox with ground meat coated scotch egg and enjoy a tasty meal even without knife and fork!
As I most recently have some time, I had been searching on the web a few days ago. In search of new, exciting tips, inspirational recipes that I have never used before, to surprise my loved ones with. Hunting for quite some time unfortunately couldn’t discover too many interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I stumbled on this yummy and easy treat by chance. It seemed so tempting
on its snapshot, that required prompt actions.
It had been not difficult to imagine how it is created, how it tastes and how much my husband will probably like it. Actually, it is rather simple to impress the guy in terms of puddings. Yes, I am a lucky one. Or perhaps he is.Anyways, I visited the website: Suncakemom and then followed the comprehensive instuctions that had been accompanied by impressive snap shots of the task. It just makes life faster and easier. I can suppose it is a bit of a hassle to take photographs in the midst of cooking in the kitchen as you may normally have gross hands thus i highly appreciate the time and effort she put in to build this post .
With that said I’m empowered to present my own formulas in a similar way. Many thanks for the concept.
I was tweaking the main mixture to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to tell you it absolutely was a great success. They prized the taste, the thickness and loved getting a sweet such as this in the midst of a stressful workweek. They ultimately requested more, many more. So the next occasion I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I’m likely to twin the amount to make them happy.
Thanks for SunCakeMom who made the scotch Egg recipe recipe a reaility
Depending on where exactly we would like to eat our scotch eggs, we can decide what type of yolk we’d like to have. If we plan to have them on the go runny yolks aren’t really recommended. Boil the eggs as desired. 15 minutes in gently boiling water generally enough the get a nice firm yolk. If the eggs are fresh, add a half teaspoon of baking soda to the boiling water as that helps peeling of the shells of fresh eggs.
If we want to add caramelized onion to the meat coating, it’s a good time saving idea to start them with the eggs. Check out how to make caramelized onion in the Low Carb Condiment section.
Peel the eggs and let them cool down.
While the eggs are cooking and cooling, prepare the meat. In a bowl mix the meat with salt, pepper, paprika, chives and caramelized onion. The original scotch egg recipe only calls for salt and pepper but these are really lovely additions to the meat.
Also we can add a bit of Parmesan that will provide a bit more strength to the coating as well as flavors.
Mix everything together well.
Form balls out of the meat about the size of the eggs. Maybe a bit bigger.
Flatten out the balls. Coating our hands with oil may prevent the meat sticking to it.
Roll the eggs up into the meat.
Close the gaps up.
Try to even the coating by gently tossing the egged meatballs from one hand to the other.
Repeat until we have a batch ready for frying or baking.
Heat oil in a frying pan to medium heat and place the scotch eggs in there. Fry one side for until it gets a golden brown – dark color for about 5 – 10 minutes. If we are after runny yolk, heat the oil to high temperatures and fry the balls shorter periods of time otherwise the yolks could be cooked hard before the meat is done.
Flip them over and cook the other side too.
When both sides get the desired color take them out and let them drip off oil.
Traditionally optional breadcrumb coating:
Original scotch eggs are coated with breadcrumbs but this is not necessary nor keto. However for the sake of tradition here it is. Roll the balls into flour until all the sides are covered.
Roll them in beaten up eggs until all the sides are covered.
Roll them in breadcrumbs until all the sides are covered.
When a batch is ready fry them in hot oil just like the scotch eggs without breadcrumbs taking care of the yolk if it’s necessary.
When one side gets a golden brown color in about 5 – 10 minutes flip them over and fry the other side too.
When both sides are done, take them out and let the oil drip off.
Pro anitketo tip. Leftover breadcrumb, flour and eggs should not be discarded but mixed together with a bit of water and fried the same way as the scotch eggs.
It’s probably not the healthiest thing ever but why waste carbs, especially if it’s tasty, right?
