Cooking Thyme in Hanna: Scotch Eggs

Article content

Emily Jamieson shared a recipe for Scotch Eggs in Cooking Thyme in Hanna Facebooks page. She noted that “traditionally, these are eaten cold as a snack, but I prefer them hot. They are excellent with a side of potatoes.”
“If you’ve never had them before, they look so weird, but they are actually crazy delicious!”
250 g. sausage meat
1/4 tsp. dried parsley
1/4 tsp. ground sage
1/4 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. Mixed Spice*
2 tbsp. quick oats
1 tbsp. chopped green onion
4 hard boiled eggs, shell removed
1 raw egg, thoroughly beaten
1/4 c. flour with a little salt and pepper
1/2 c. bread crumbs
Oil for frying
In a large bowl, mix together sausage meat, green onion, oats, and spices. Evenly separate into four balls.
Wrap each boiled egg in meat, roll in flour, then raw egg, then bread crumbs.
Fry in oil over medium heat, making sure to get all sides, until sausage is cooked through. You can deep fry or air fry or even just fry them in a pan!

*Mixed Spice is a British seasoning that can be hard to find here in Canada. So here’s a DIY version:
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2/3 tsp. ground allspice
2/3 tsp. ground nutmeg
2/3 tsp. ground cloves
1/3 tsp. ground ginger
1/3 tsp. ground coriander
1/4 tsp. ground mace
Stir it all together and use as much as you need. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
