Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Chino Valley Ranchers! To help you eat like the Irish do, we’re happy to share an authentic Irish egg dish with you: Scotch eggs.
While this recipe supposedly originates from England, Scotch eggs are very popular in Irish restaurants. Take a look at this yummy Scotch egg recipe and enjoy trying it out this St. Patrick’s Day!
What You’ll Need: (Serving Size: 6 eggs)
Pre-heat your oven to 400° F.
Place a pot of salted water on the stove and gently put 6 out of the 7 Chino Valley Ranchers eggs into the pot. Once the water is boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for about 8-9 minutes.
Once the eggs are cooked, peel the eggs under cold water and set them to the side.
Time to Assemble:
Take a handful of the sausage meat and flatten it into an oval shape with your hands.
Take the flattened sausage and wrap it around the egg, making sure that there aren’t any gaps and that the meat covers the entire egg.
Coat the meat-covered egg with flour and place on a baking sheet.
Fully dip the floured eggs with the beaten egg (Bowl Two) and roll it in the breadcrumbs.
Place the eggs on a cooking sheet and put them in the oven to cook for about 25-30 minutes, making sure that the breadcrumbs are crispy and the sausage is fully cooked through.
From there, your Scotch eggs are ready to be enjoyed. Whether you eat them warm or cooled, they are tasty either way! To ensure the best outcome of the dish, it starts with picking the best eggs. Be sure to purchase your eggs from Chino Valley Ranchers, a fresh and delicious egg producer in California.
