Recipe by  

The Vegetarian Scotch Egg is a great cold addition to a buffet, with a salad, in a picnic, as a snack or hot with French Fries. There are not too many people who know how to make their own, so it's an unusual idea for creating something out of the ordinary.

How to Cook Vegetarian Scotch Egg

  1. Place 4 of the eggs in a pan and cover completely with cold water. Heat over a high heat until boiling then reduce the heat and simmer for 4 minutes. Cool in cold water before removing the shells.
  2. Whisk the remaining egg. Finely chop the parsley and chives. Cut the crusts off the bread and crumble the remaining white bread between your fingers to make small breadcrumbs (if you have a food processor, you can use the chopper attachment for this, but don't chop the bread too fine). Combine the chopped herbs with the breadcrumbs and season with salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste. Gently roll each boiled egg in flour, then the whisked egg mixture then the breadcrumbs. Shape the breadcrumbs onto the egg with your hands.
  3. Put the oil in a pan to a depth of 2" (5cm) and heat. Fry the eggs over a medium-high heat, turning regularly, for about 3-4 minutes until golden all over. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place on a baking tray in a preheated moderate oven (Mk 3 - 325ºF - 170ºC) for about 5 minutes to cook right through.

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
Cold Scotch Egg is delicious with Fresh Tomato Salad. Hot Scotch Egg is great with Baked Feta Cheese and Tomatoes.

Reviews of Vegetarian Scotch Egg

Rating 4 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again May 05 2015
Delicious! First time I made them I made the mistake of just frying them because I couldn't see the point of frying then putting them in the oven ... Mistake! While they tasted 'OK', they tasted a hell of a lot better when I made them according to the recipe! The frying simply crisps the outside. The oven baking "cooks" below the level of fried outside and finishes the job off properly!
