Foodie Friday: Recipe: Scotch Eggs from Rose & Crown Pub

Failte!!!Are you ready to get your Medieval on in time to see the new Disney movie Brave? Let's get our tummies ready, too. For your palate pleasure, we have the recipe for what is called Scotch eggs. Though it isn't really Scottish, throw on that red curly wig, and get to cooking:O)


  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup finely crushed corn flakes
  • 3/4 cup fresh breakfast sausage,or ground pork
  • Vegetable oil (for frying)
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • Mustard
  • PREp:

    • Place 4 eggs in a small saucepan; add cold water to cover. Bring to a boil; remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 3 minutes. Carefully drain, then fill pan with ice water to cool eggs. Gently crack shells and carefully peel under cold running water. Place eggs in a bowl of cold water; cover and chill until cold. 
    • Place flour in a wide shallow bowl and crushed corn flakes in another wide shallow bowl. Divide sausage into 4 equal portions. Pat 1 portion of sausage into a thin patty over the length of your palm. Lay 1 soft-boiled egg on top of sausage and wrap sausage around egg, sealing to completely enclose. Repeat with remaining sausage and eggs.
    • Whisk remaining 2 eggs in a medium bowl to blend. Working gently with 1 sausage-wrapped egg at a time, dip eggs into flour, shaking off excess, then coat in egg wash. Roll in corn flakes to coat. 
    • Attach a deep-fry thermometer to side of a large heavy pot. Pour in oil to a depth of 2” and heat over medium heat to 375°. Fry eggs, turning occasionally and maintaining oil temperature of 350°, until sausage is cooked through and breading is golden brown and crisp, 5–6 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer eggs to paper towels to drain. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Serve warm with mustard.
      You may need to add some sausage and adjust the cooking time if you decided to do that. This mix is sticky, so keep your hands wet, let the kiddies help too!
      For even more fun, let them make a crown like the one Queen Elinor wears!!

      Now, of course, at the Rose and Crown Pub this is paired with a small green salad and fried bread.
