HUBBY REQUEST for SCOTCH EGGS

Hubby rarely brings me recipes he’d like me to try, but when he does I go out of my way to please him by making them.  Now the picture on the recipe he showed me looked like they used tiny little eggs and suggested 2-3 per person, but let me assure you 1-2 is more than enough!

Now when I read the recipe he brought me it was a lot labor intensive in that you had to start by making your own sausage! So, I did do a bit of change ups and he was quite happy.

  1. Kill boar (so this is a bit of an exaggeration, but you get my drift. I wasn’t going to make my own sausage).
  2. Grind Meat.
  3. Prepare sausage.
  4. Change mind and go grocery shopping.

  • Add seasonings to sausage and mix well.
  • Portion sausage into 4 pancake like patties.
  • Place 1 peeled egg in the center of each one sausage pancake and wrap sausage around egg forming orbs.
