I’m pretty gutsy when it comes to food but for some reason, this one slightly scared me. I have no idea why either.
Here is some background:
Whenever The Husband and I watches TV, I totally hoard the controller and we watch anything food like food network, the cooking channel, TLC, and the travel network. The Husband hates how much food stuff I watch. Amazingly I actually don’t get hungry but watch the different shows for ideas.
One day we were watching Unique Eats on the Cooking Channel and one of the topics was Scottish Eggs. For some reason, The Husband had to have it. He gets like that when we watch any food stuff. He curses me on a daily basis because he is hungry and he wants what ever food is on display. It is a fun game for me. So I told him, I’ll make him some for breakfast that weekend. Well he remembered and reminded me to make some. I was thinking…Dang It…I was hoping he would forget. So I told him to start boiling the egg and I’ll cook it. I love fried food like the next person but for some reason, this scared me. It is a whole egg surrounded by beef and deep fried. I know this is similar to Embudito (Filipino meatloaf) but I steam mine not deep fry it. I went basic for recipe and since I had 1/2 a pack of Italian sausage in the fridge, I figured I will just use that.
My Version of Scottish Eggs
2 Hard Boiled Eggs
1/2 Package of Italian Sausage (about 4-6 oz)
* If you used ground beef, I would season it with salt and pepper and add a little flour and egg to bind the mixture.
- I was totally experimenting with this and I just took the Italian sausage and wrapped it around egg.
- I took a small sauce pan and filled it about 1/4 up on the pan with oil and fried.
- Turn it multiple times so it will cook evenly.
The Husband loved it. He just had it with ketchup and rice. I only had a little bit of it and it was good but it wasn’t my cup of tea. He ate the whole batch.
