How to Make Scotch Egg Surprise

  • Boil 4 eggs for 10 mins and shell them.
  • Mince the onion and the coriander very finely. Divide the mincemeat into 4 portions and knead well with the minced onions, salt and half of the coriander. Keep aside.
  • Cut the hard boiled eggs lengthwise into two. Remove the yolks carefully.
  • Put yolks in small bowl and add cheese, butter and rest of the coriander and salt and mash well with a fork.
  • Divide the yolk mixture into 8 portions and fill each into the hollow of the eggs; press the two halves of the eggs together, making 4 whole eggs.
  • Roll the 4 mincemeat portions into balls. Flatten them on a lightly floured board and wrap them around the eggs.
  • Seal the joints firmly. Beat up the remaining egg with a fork. Heat oil for frying.
  • Dip each meat-covered egg in the beaten egg. Roll in breadcrumbs and fry till brown on all sides.
  • Drain well and cut into half, breadth wise. Serve hot.
