    Definitely needs more sausage. You can never have too much sausage.

    my prefered mustard mix is 2 parts spicy dijon or spicy brown mustard, 3 parts miracle whip (or mayonaisse, up to you), and horse radish to taste

    Well brother they are called nargisi koftah in Urdu and the moguls introduced it in India. Nargis is the name of a flower shaped like an eye ( lotus ). The eggs when cut in the middle also looks like an eye, hence the name.

    Why do you talk with such strange and exaggerated punctuation and pausing?
    Very distracting. And weird.

    Can't get past the texture of soft boiled eggs. Then again, don't like gelatin or fat either. Good to know that cooking them hard boiled won't hurt the recipe.

      I love the texture, but I can see where you come from. Different preferences. I like the taste of shrimp but OMG the texture is revolting. Tried it like 5 different ways and I can't stomach it.

    The recipe is neither from Scotland nor India but from London, England I don`t like it when Chefs take a English recipe then incorrectly attribute it to other countries.

    I tried it out and it was delicious!
    My only problem was the eggs fell apart when I took the shell off, so I just used hard boiled eggs.

    Best Scotch Eggs I have seen.

    MY FAVESTATION Month ago

    I couldn't agree more...they need to be a "thin-molten"!!! IMHO, the traditional method ruins it with a fully hard-boiled egg!

    Can you cook those in an Air Fryer? Same amount of time??

  • clockworkhearts
    clockworkhearts Month ago

    my favourite way to boil eggs is to cover them with cold water, bring them to the boil and then take them off the heat as soon as the water’s boiling, slap a lid on and let them sit for 6 minutes or so depending on how done you want them. perfect eggs every time.

    They look absolutely fabulous chef John I don't really like hard boiled eggs but love eggs with runny yolks. I have always wanted to make scotch eggs but was put off by the hard boiled eggs and didn't know a way to get them to have a runny yolk. Thanks mate!

  • Veronica jean-pierre

    I’m so glad I stumbled across your video- aside from the intrigue of combining sausage and eggs, you made me laugh out loud several times with your witty narration. Thanks for sharing the recipe and your personality. Now I’m going to think about how to interpret this recipe in other ways- I’m Black Creole, my husband is Haitian, so improvisation comes naturally in the kitchen. Maybe I’ll add epis to the sausage, or use Lemelle’s sausage (a family owned butcher shop in Ames, TX with out of this world sausage and hot links) or even BOUDAIN!!!

    looks great. Some alternate versions pan fry them and use ground cured ham making exact cooking times more flexible. love the sauce idea and the "molten" soft boil. Was also thinking about a quick breakfast I call eggy in the middle , where I cook an egg over medium inside a piece of toast, figure it would work for a thin meat patty as well.

    Actually they are from East India particularly from Indian state named West Bengal. They are made in two ways , one of which u have just shown over here and in another form instead of the sausages we use smashed potatoes and in place of bread crumbs coating we use powdered pulses ( called besan in india). The second way is actually a cheaper way of making it but still it tastes good too. And we call them " Dim er devil" which translates to "Devil Eggs " .
