As I currently have a little time, I had been browsing on the internet the other day. In search of new, fascinating thoughts, inspiring dishes that I have never tried before, to astonish my family with. Hunting for quite some time but couldn’t come across any interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I came upon this yummy and simple dessert by chance. It looked so mouth-watering on its photos, it required quick action.
It had been not so difficult to imagine just how it’s created, how it tastes and just how much my hubby will probably love it. Actually, it is quite simple to please the man when it comes to cakes. Anyways, I visited the blog: Suncakemom and then followed the precise instuctions that have been accompanied by wonderful pics of the procedure. It really makes life faster and easier. I could suppose it is a bit of a inconvenience to shoot photos down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you normally have gross hands so that i highly appreciate the time and effort she put in to build this post .
That being said I’m encouraged presenting my own, personal formulas similarly. Thanks for the idea.
I was tweaking the initial mixture create it for the taste of my loved ones. I must tell you it had been a great success. They prized the taste, the consistency and loved having a treat like this in the middle of a stressful week. They basically wanted more, many more. Hence next time I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I’m going to multiply the quantity to get them pleased.
You can find the original scotch egg recipe at SunCakeMom
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?
