As I most recently have a little time, I was searching on the web a few days ago. Trying to get fresh, interesting thoughts, inspirational dishes that I have never tested before, to amaze my loved ones with. Searching for quite some time but could not find any interesting stuff. Just before I thought to give up on it, I discovered this fabulous and simple treat simply by chance. The dessert seemed so mouth-watering on its image, it required rapid actions.

It absolutely was not so difficult to imagine just how it’s created, how it tastes and how much boyfriend will love it. Mind you, it is rather simple to keep happy him in terms of treats. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or possibly he is.Anyway, I visited the blog: Suncakemom and followed the simple instuctions which were accompanied by wonderful pictures of the operation. It really makes life faster and easier. I could suppose it is a bit of a inconvenience to shoot photographs in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you may most often have gross hands so that i really appreciate the time and energy she put in to build this post .

With that in mind I’m inspired presenting my very own formulas similarly. Thanks for the concept.

I had been fine tuning the main recipe to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I must tell you it absolutely was an incredible outcome. They prized the flavor, the overall look and enjoyed having a sweet such as this in the midst of a lively week. They ultimately demanded more, a lot more. Thus next time I am not going to commit the same mistake. I am gonna multiply the volume .

The origanal Scotch egg recipe recipe is from SunCakeMom

Depending on where exactly we would like to eat our scotch eggs, we can decide what type of yolk we’d like to have. If we plan to have them on the go runny yolks aren’t really recommended. Boil the eggs as desired. 15 minutes in gently boiling water generally enough the get a nice firm yolk. If the eggs are fresh, add a half teaspoon of baking soda to the boiling water as that helps peeling of the shells of fresh eggs.

If we want to add caramelized onion to the meat coating, it’s a good time saving idea to start them with the eggs. Check out how to make caramelized onion in the Low Carb Condiment section.

Peel the eggs and let them cool down.

While the eggs are cooking and cooling, prepare the meat. In a bowl mix the meat with salt, pepper, paprika, chives and caramelized onion. The original scotch egg recipe only calls for salt and pepper but these are really lovely additions to the meat.

Also we can add a bit of Parmesan that will provide a bit more strength to the coating as well as flavors.

Mix everything together well.

Form balls out of the meat about the size of the eggs. Maybe a bit bigger.

Flatten out the balls. Coating our hands with oil may prevent the meat sticking to it.

Roll the eggs up into the meat.

Close the gaps up.

Try to even the coating by gently tossing the egged meatballs from one hand to the other.

Repeat until we have a batch ready for frying or baking.

Heat oil in a frying pan to medium heat and place the scotch eggs in there. Fry one side for until it gets a golden brown – dark color for about 5 – 10 minutes. If we are after runny yolk, heat the oil to high temperatures and fry the balls shorter periods of time otherwise the yolks could be cooked hard before the meat is done.

Flip them over and cook the other side too.

When both sides get the desired color take them out and let them drip off oil.

Traditionally optional breadcrumb coating:

Original scotch eggs are coated with breadcrumbs but this is not necessary nor keto. However for the sake of tradition here it is. Roll the balls into flour until all the sides are covered.

Roll them in beaten up eggs until all the sides are covered.

Roll them in breadcrumbs until all the sides are covered.

When a batch is ready fry them in hot oil just like the scotch eggs without breadcrumbs taking care of the yolk if it’s necessary.

When one side gets a golden brown color in about 5 – 10 minutes flip them over and fry the other side too.

When both sides are done, take them out and let the oil drip off.

Pro anitketo tip. Leftover breadcrumb, flour and eggs should not be discarded but mixed together with a bit of water and fried the same way as the scotch eggs.

It’s probably not the healthiest thing ever but why waste carbs, especially if it’s tasty, right?
