Growing up, there was this lady who always pass by selling scotch eggs. It was so yummy but since I was never an egg person I will just eat it just for the fun of it. Then one day mum made her own version of scotch eggs and added a twist to it, but this time with sausages. Sausages then were found only in the big shops and super market in town and it was quiet expensive I guess.
Hmmmm mum’s scotch eggs got to me right to my heart, the flavour and tenderness of the eggs were just so wowww, from that day I kept asking for more lol. Scotch eggs its hard boiled eggs wrapped in seasoned sausages, meat or fish breaded and then fried! Depending on your mood and taste bud I can assure you that they are one good snacks to try at home for the kids. So today I’ll be beefing up scotch eggs. Actually I wanted it to be swaddled in sausages but I didn’t find the correct sausage so I went with minced meat rolled like sausage but they are actually minced meat that i bought from Centragel Bastos, they really do have all kinds of meat and sausages so you can easily get yours there. So make sure you don’t over boil your eggs as well
NB: when boiling your eggs, always add a pinch of salt to the water, this helps your eggs not to break and it peels off easily. Ready? Let’s gooooo
