    Thank-you Chef John. Great way to cook scotch eggs. I have never cooked them because I don't like hard boiled eggs. But now I will.

    My son made one of these today and brought it over. His coating was using cornflakes, and a mustard and horseradish sauce on the side. It really was very good. It has to be very special because the cat that eats nothing but kibble wrestled away a pretty good sized piece from me!!!!!

    another way for soft boiled is to submerge eggs into boiling water for exactly 4 mins then to immediately take them out an bath them in icy water until they are no longer hot

    so i just did this recipe and i gotta say , they turned out better then i expected but i ddn't make the sause and i feel it was missing it , which left the scotch egg's a little un flavored or i should say they just needed a little more flavor , but i do gotta say , either boil your eggs for 1 more minute , or let the fry go for the full 6 minutes , i went boil for 6 and fry for 5 and i sill had a little of the inside whites loose , and i like the egg whites done , i still ate them all made 4 .. and now i feel very full but damn good , ill be making the sauce next time i make it

    I need to make these for my german in laws! It's difficult to make British cuisine over here because the sausage and bacon is so so different. I can't make toad in the hole with german sausage or a fry up because their sausages are too tough. But I am sure I can find some raw Italian sausage meat over here! :)

    Came for the “scotch egg” search, stayed, liked, and subscribed for the beautifully edited video. How many videos on TVclip are filled with long pauses between steps and unnecessary background noise? Credit where credit is due. ;)

    Making this again today in a batch of 36 -- English family reunion here in Texas. For sausage though, I've decided to use a sage-flavored Jimmy Dean with a tablespoon of Ancho powder. I'm going to encase them today, but wait on the coating until two hours before frying. It should be marvelous and Southern. This really is an excellent techniques video. If you like eggs and meat, a Scotch egg is transcendental.

  • Khasab

    that's just a silly way to do the eggs. Totally unnecessary, and more likely to burn the shell and crack the eggs.
    Just boil them in a pan of water as per normal. If you want them soft boiled ( and I've timed this exactly) Put the eggs into boiling water for 3 minutes. You'll get the yoke runny and the white cooked.

    The best Scotch Eggs can be bought at Fortnum and Mason, HM the Queens grocer. In fact it was this shop that invented them

    GREAT looking recipe, but in place of the mustard aoli, I would suggest a remoulade, which is admittedly just the same thing with added vinegar, lemon juice, and chopped pickle. Or if you're feeling adventurous, a cajun remoulade also has spicy peppers and a touch of curry.

    Chef John, I’m your biggest fan. I love many of your recipes and your videos. The joke comparing rising from the grave to eggs, however, was tasteless and offensive. Everyone says something regrettable sometimes, including me. I hope you will walk this one back a little. Thank you!

    The North Indian dish is Nargisi Kofta = egg wrapped in mince meat and deep fried. That doesn't use bread crumb coating may be a little flour. But the problem is whenever I try to fry, the coating always pops open and the egg comes out.
