Buchannan Farm’s Curry Scotch Egg
We met Buchannan’s Turkey farm at their first farmer’s market at the Inns last year and quickly learnt they’re not just about Turkey’s! They make sweet and crispy bacon, lamb chops, burgers and seasoned pork sausages. Their curry sausages have a lovely mild spiciness and make a gorgeous scotch egg! The recipe calls for Panko breadcrumbs which are crunchier and bigger than your regular breadcrumbs and a double coating around the scotch egg gives a lovely crispy shell to bite through. Enjoy!
Curry Scotch Egg
Serves #: 4
6 Cavanagh Free Range Eggs
600g Buchanan’s Curry Sausages
Handful of Fresh Coriander Leaves, Chopped
300g Panko Breadcrumbs
300g Plain Flour
Oil for Frying
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 19 minutes
Boil four of the eggs for 6 minutes. Once cooked, peel the eggs and place them in ice cold water.
Beat the two remaining eggs. Place them in a large bowl next to a large bowl containing the flour and a third large bowl containing the breadcrumbs.
Remove the sausage meat from the sausage casings and mix with the chopped coriander.
To make the scotch eggs, divide the meat into four even balls. Flatten the meat in the palm of your hand. Roll the cooked egg in flour, cover with the sausage meat and make sure there’s no egg white visible. Roll the meat covered egg in the flour, then in the beaten eggs, then into the breadcrumbs and again into the beaten eggs and a second time into the breadcrumbs.
Deep fry at 170°C for 3 minutes until golden and cook in the oven at 180°C for 10 minutes.
