For the Unconventional Olive Alscone Scotch Egg

Scotch Egg

  1. Take a 30g piece of the sausage mix and flatten into a disc
  2. Place an olive into the centre and enclose the olive in the mix so a ball is formed and no gaps or cracks evident
  3. Make a batter out of the flour and water, then dip the balls into the batter and drain
  4. Roll the balls into the breadcrumb and then leave to firm up then chill

Sausage Mix

  1. Heat the olive oil and cook the onions and herbs for a few minutes with colour until softened, then add the breadcrumbs and mix together and remove from the heat
  2. Once cooled, mix the onion mix with the sausage meat and combine evenly

To serve

  1. Either deep fry or shallow fry to give colour then place in the oven at 160c for 5-6 minutes
