As I most recently have a little time, I had been surfing on the internet a few days ago. On the lookout for new, fascinating tips, inspiring recipes that We have never tasted before, to astonish my loved ones with. Searching for a long time but could not discover any interesting things. Right before I thought to give up on it, I discovered this fabulous and simple treat by chance at Suncakemom. It seemed so mouth-watering on its photos, it required immediate action.

It had been not so difficult to imagine just how it’s created, how it tastes and how much my hubby is going to love it. Actually, it is very easy to keep happy the man in terms of puddings. Anyways, I went to the website and followed the detailed instuctions that had been coupled with superb graphics of the task. It just makes life faster and easier. I can suppose it’s a bit of a hassle to shoot pics down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may usually have gross hands therefore i really appreciate the effort and time she devote to make this blogpost .

With that said I am empowered presenting my very own recipe similarly. Appreciate your the idea.

I was tweaking the original formula to make it for the taste of my family. I must mention it absolutely was a terrific outcome. They prized the flavour, the thickness and enjoyed getting a delicacy such as this during a hectic workweek. They basically requested lots more, more and more. Hence next time I am not going to commit the same mistake. I’m likely to multiply the volume to make them happy.

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?
