Dingley Dell Smoked Ham Scotch Egg

Ingredients & Method

Mix the cooked flaked ham knuckle meat with the sausage meat, seasoning, crushed garlic, ground fennel seeds and the chopped herbs.

Peel the soft-boiled hen’s eggs.

Pack the meat around the soft-boiled eggs; leave them to set in the fridge.

Panée the eggs: roll the Scotch egg in the flour, then the whipped egg and then lastly in the panko breadcrumbs.

Heat a deep fat fryer to 160°C, fry the eggs until golden brown, drain them on kitchen paper.

Serve the Scotch egg on its own or with a seasonal salad of artichokes, broad beans and nasturtium leaves and flowers.
