I know the original Scotch egg is made with sausage meat but to make it healthier I've made it with lean minced beef.
I hope you really enjoy this recipe. Is a simple recipe but it is quite impressive. I think it would look awesome on a table if you have friends over.
My hubby was really impressed by it when he came home to this meal, so it was a great success.
300 grams of lean minced beef
4 small eggs
Flour ( I used sesame flour but you can use oat flour or any flour you have at home)
1 egg whisked in a bowl
2 teaspoons of dijon mustard
Homemade bread crumbs (just blend 1 slice of wholemeal bread in the blender)
Boil some water in a sauce pan. Once the water is bubbling put in the eggs. Time them to boil for exactly 6 minutes. Once this goes off throw the water out and cover them with cold freezing water. (This step is to cool them down so the egg doesn't overcook.)
Prepare the meat. In a bowl add the meat, onion, herbs, garlic, dijon mustard, sea salt and pepper. Mix well.
Peel the eggs.
Prepare your station with 3 bowls: 1 with flour, 1 with a whisked egg, and 1 with breadcrumbs.
Grab some meat and form a flat burger. Roll the egg in some flour and place inside the rolled meat and form a ball.
This is where the bowls from step 4 become important. Carefully roll the ball in the bowl containing flour, then in the whisked egg bowl mix, and finally in the bowl containing the breadcrumbs.
Fry them in a frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil, at a low heat, for about 20 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
