Scottish Happiness Egg w Tomato Salsa

Posted 2014-04-17 by GiGi GMV follow


These scottish eggs are prefect for picnic and lunch boxes. I actually enjoy them as a stand alone tapas dish with a nice aged red wine.

I got these lovely premium chorizo & beef sausages and use it instead of ordinary sausage mince.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 6 servings



Ingredients

7 eggs
6 smoky chorizo sausages
1 small french onion
1 ripe truss tomato
50g bread crumbs
50g flour
150ml canola oil
30g fresh rocket
Salt and pepper to season


Method
  • Put all 6 eggs into a pan of salted cold water and bring it to boil.
  • Boil for 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and cool the eggs in icy water.



  • Gently crack the shells and peel the eggs carefully under running cold water.



  • Lightly slit the sausages, remove the flim and squeeze out the sausage meat.
  • Line the work station with glad wrap.
  • Flatten the sausage mince on the glad wrap.
  • Place a boiled egg on top of the mince.



  • Pick up the edges of the glad wrap and wrap the meat evenly around the egg.
  • Mould it into a lovely oral shape with your hands.



  • Remove the glad wrap.
  • A handy way to avoid getting your hands sticky with mince. :D



  • Arrange the 'skinny-dip' work station as shown.
  • Have 3 plates align next to each other - first is flour; second is a beaten egg infused with herbs and third is the breadcrumbs.



  • Roll the minced-wrapped egg in flour.
  • Dust off any excess.



  • Then dip it into the beaten egg.
  • Roll it in the breadcrumbs for a good coating.
  • Dust off any excess.



  • Heat the oil in the deep fryer.
  • Carefully load the eggs into the fryer and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Turn occasionally until it achieve a beautiful golden crispy coating.
  • Remove and blot the excess oil on paper towel.



  • Cool the eggs slightly before cutting into half.

  • Will you look at that! It doesn't look too bad huh?



    To make easy peasy tomato salsa:
  • Finely chop tomato, spanish onion and some dill.
  • Lightly drizzle some balsamic vinegar.



  • Plate 2 half eggs on a tapas plate.
  • Top with 1/2 spoonful of tomato salsa
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Garnish with a wedge of lime and some fresh rocket.



  • Serve with a nice glass of wine.



  • Do a tasting combo with smoked-salmon potato fritter for a taste sensation.
  • Please see my previous recipe entry for the smoked-salmon potato fritter.



  • Phew ~ it is a longish recipe.
    It tooks me a while to get it organised.

    The perfect savory snack for Easter in between chocolates.

    Hope you enjoy reading it! Cheers~
