As I recently have a little time, I was searching on the web a few days ago. Looking for new, fascinating ideas, inspirational dishes that I’ve never tasted before, to astonish my loved ones with. Looking for a long time yet couldn’t find too many interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I stumbled on this scrumptious and easy dessert simply by luck at Suncakemom. The dessert seemed so delicious on its photo, it required prompt actions.
It was not so difficult to imagine just how it is created, its taste and just how much boyfriend will probably love it. Mind you, it is very simple to keep happy him in terms of cakes. Yes, I am a lucky one. Or perhaps he is.Anyhow, I went to the webpage and then followed the precise instuctions that were combined with impressive graphics of the operation. It really makes life much simpler. I could suppose it’s a bit of a inconvenience to shoot snap shots in the midst of cooking in the kitchen because you usually have gross hands so that i really appreciate the hard work she put in to make this blogpost and recipe conveniently followed.
Having said that I am encouraged presenting my very own recipes in the same way. Many thanks the concept.
I was tweaking the main recipe to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I must say it turned out a terrific outcome. They prized the taste, the thickness and enjoyed having a treat like this in the midst of a hectic workweek. They ultimately demanded more, many more. So the next time I’m not going to make the same miscalculation. I am likely to double the quantity .

Depending on where exactly we would like to eat our scotch eggs, we can decide what type of yolk we’d like to have. If we plan to have them on the go runny yolks aren’t really recommended. Boil the eggs as desired. 15 minutes in gently boiling water generally enough the get a nice firm yolk. If the eggs are fresh, add a half teaspoon of baking soda to the boiling water as that helps peeling of the shells of fresh eggs.
If we want to add caramelized onion to the meat coating, it’s a good time saving idea to start them with the eggs. Check out how to make caramelized onion in the Low Carb Condiment section.
Peel the eggs and let them cool down.
While the eggs are cooking and cooling, prepare the meat. In a bowl mix the meat with salt, pepper, paprika, chives and caramelized onion. The original scotch egg recipe only calls for salt and pepper but these are really lovely additions to the meat.
Also we can add a bit of Parmesan that will provide a bit more strength to the coating as well as flavors.
Mix everything together well.
Form balls out of the meat about the size of the eggs. Maybe a bit bigger.
Flatten out the balls. Coating our hands with oil may prevent the meat sticking to it.
Roll the eggs up into the meat.
Close the gaps up.
Try to even the coating by gently tossing the egged meatballs from one hand to the other.
Repeat until we have a batch ready for frying or baking.
Heat oil in a frying pan to medium heat and place the scotch eggs in there. Fry one side for until it gets a golden brown – dark color for about 5 – 10 minutes. If we are after runny yolk, heat the oil to high temperatures and fry the balls shorter periods of time otherwise the yolks could be cooked hard before the meat is done.
Flip them over and cook the other side too.
When both sides get the desired color take them out and let them drip off oil.
Traditionally optional breadcrumb coating:
Original scotch eggs are coated with breadcrumbs but this is not necessary nor keto. However for the sake of tradition here it is. Roll the balls into flour until all the sides are covered.
Roll them in beaten up eggs until all the sides are covered.
Roll them in breadcrumbs until all the sides are covered.
When a batch is ready fry them in hot oil just like the scotch eggs without breadcrumbs taking care of the yolk if it’s necessary.
When one side gets a golden brown color in about 5 – 10 minutes flip them over and fry the other side too.
When both sides are done, take them out and let the oil drip off.
Pro anitketo tip. Leftover breadcrumb, flour and eggs should not be discarded but mixed together with a bit of water and fried the same way as the scotch eggs.
It’s probably not the healthiest thing ever but why waste carbs, especially if it’s tasty, right?
