Scotch Eggs

Scotch Eggs Recipe or How to make Scotch Eggs

Breakfast on weekends is something everyone always looks forward too. Though we are so much used to Paranthas or Omlettes, I love to expreriment and bring the oh-so-good chicken in my breakfast. That is why I tried these Scotch Eggs.

I have done experiments earlier as well like I did this Shakshuka which is an amazing Moroccon breakfast.

But these Scotch Eggs are as English as they can get.

A very typical English dish, Scotch Eggs are known to be invented in london in 1738 but then it is also very similar to Mughal dish Nargisi Koftas. In UK, packaged Scotch Eggs are easily available at departmental stores. In Netherland, they are also called "little bird's nest".

Lets get to the recipe straightaway.


  1. Chicken Mince or Keema.
  2. Eggs.
  3. Dried Mixed Herbs
  4. Oregano
  5. Piri Piri Spice Mix
  6. Salt to taste.
  7. Oil for deep frying.
  8. Bread Crumbs

  1. First of all hard boil the eggs. Now, you can also soft boil the eggs if you like the yolk gooey or runny.
  2. Mix salt, mixed herbs and oregano in mince and mix well.
  3. Flatten it on a board big enough to cover the egg.
  4. Now, slightly put cold water on your hands and put the peeled boiled egg on the mince. Take it in both hands and cover the egg nicely with mince. Make sure it is coated nicely and turned into a nice ball. Also, ensure the layer is not too thick to ensure proper cooking.
  5. Now, give these mice coated eggs a nice egg wash in beaten egg.
  6. Coat it gently with bread crumbs.
  7. Heat oil in pan on medium heat.
  8. Fry the eggs for 3-4 minutes till golden brown. You can also bake them if you don't wanna deep fry.
  9. Cut half and serve with favorite sauce.

Yipee, you scotch eggs are ready now. Enjoy.
