|Cameroon style scotch egg|
I'm not a fan of boiled eggs but when it comes to eggs rolled in dough and served with 'sweet' pepper sauce then I'm a huge fan! There's just something about scotch eggs. They put the 'e' in the eggs. Lol
So recently I had a huge amount of eggs sitting in my fridge. While thinking of what I could do with them, I remembered scotch eggs. Oh scotchy!
When I made and served them to hubby, he was so in love. So few days after, he requested that I make another batch. I transitioned from deep frying them to baking them. They are healthier and still taste great! Let's start cooking. Shall we?
Prep time: 30 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 50 mins
Makes: 4 scotch eggs
1 cup of flour
One quarter teaspoon of baking powder
1 tablespoon unsalted butter/margarine
One quarter teaspoon garlic powder
One quarter teaspoon white pepper
Salt to taste
*Could add other seasonings as needed
-Boil eggs for about 20 mins. Remove from heat and plunge in cold water shell and wipe with paper towel and set aside.
-Rub in flour, butter and all seasonings until the mixture looks like fine bread crumbs or garri.
-Add a little water and mix dough until it forms a non-sticky ball.
-Roll out dough on a floured board. Then use something round to create circles on it.
-Place an egg on a circle and wrap it well. Be sure to close the edges well so they don't open up while baking/frying.
-Place eggs on a greased tray and bake (on a greased tray) at 350 Degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes or till golden brown.
*I had a little dough left and I baked it too so it gave me this:
If you would love your egg to have a glossy look, brush with some beaten egg before baking.
What is originally called scotch egg is egg rolled in ground sausage/meat/fish, flour, egg and deep fried. I haven't tried that version yet. I will bring you the recipe when I do.
