To make the Scotch Eggs
Place the bread in an oven at 150°C for 20 minutes until
completely dried. When cool, place in a plastic bag and crush until
you have breadcrumbs.
Par boil the eggs by putting them in gently boiling water for 4
minutes (if the eggs are at room temperature), or 6 minutes (if
they are in the fridge). Then, place the eggs in cold water, gently
tapping them to crack the shell for a few minutes. The shell will
now peel off easily.
Take the sausages. Slice off the skins, remove the meat, divide
into 4 and gently squeeze the sausage meat evenly around each egg
Take three bowls; Put the flour in the first, crack the remaining egg into the second bowl and
whisk with a fork and the breadcrumbs in the third.
Roll the scotch eggs in the flour, then whisked egg and then the breadcrumbs to cover.
Place on a baking tray and cook in a preheated oven at 160°C for
The happy egg co.
In 2010, I was proud to be asked to become brand ambassador for the happy egg co.
The happy egg co. is the UK’s number one brand of free range eggs, and believe that hen welfare is key.
The happy egg co. are firmly of the belief that happy hens lay wonderfully tasty eggs, which is why they want to be experts in hen husbandry and ahead of the game to make sure the girls are as happy as can be. They’ve even won a Good Egg award from Compassion in World Farming in recognition of all their hard work.
They believe that hens enjoy being busy and that’s why they not only provide wide open pastures for the hens to roam and forage, but also equip all of their farms with an assortment of activities to enhance the hens’ natural environment. This includes play kits for perching, sandpits, trees and brashings. Only specially selected British free range farms are chosen to become happy egg farms, all of which are approved by both the British Lion Standard and RSPCA Freedom Food.
