  1. 1

    Place 4 whole eggs in a pan of cold, salted water and bring to the boil. Simmer for about 8 minutes.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 4 Egg(s) (free range) medium
  2. 2

    Drain & cool the 4 eggs under running water then peel the shells off.

  3. 3

    In a large bowl mix the sausage meat with the thyme, parsley and spring onion and season well with salt & pepper.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 275g Sausage meat
    • 1 tbsp Parsley fresh, chopped
    • 1 Spring onions finely sliced
    • pinch Salt
    • pinch Pepper
  4. 4

    Divide the sausage meat into four, and flatten into ovals approx 12cm x 7cm, similar to the shape of the palm of your hand.

  5. 5

    Next put the flour onto a plate and the breadcrumbs onto two separate plates. Beat the remaining egg in a bowl.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 125g Plain white flour
    • 125g Breadcrumbs
    • 1 Egg(s) (free range) medium
  6. 6

    Dip each egg in the flour, then beaten egg and finally roll in breadcrumbs, ensuring a good even coating at each stage.

  7. 7

    Heat the oil in a large deep pan until a breadcrumb sizzles and turns brown when dropped in (CAUTION do not leave hot oil unattended and be careful when around it).

  8. 8

    Carefully place the scotch eggs in the oil and fry for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Chill before serving.
