Steps

  1. Put the 5 quail eggs into a pan of water and bring to the boil.
  2. Boil for around 5 minutes, then transfer to a bowl of cold water. Once cooled, carefully peel them. It will be a little runny in the middle. If you like a harder boiled centre, boil them for an extra couple of minutes.
  3. I used left over chicken cutlet mix to wrap the boiled eggs. Please refer first 7 steps of chicken cutlet to prepare cutlet mix. Instead of cutlet mix, you can use sausage meat as well.
  4. Have 3 plates ready - one with flour, one with the beaten eggs and a third one with the breadcrumbs.
  5. To make the Scotch eggs, flatten cutlet mix into an oval-shaped pattie. Roll a peeled egg in flour, then pop it in the middle of the pattie. Gently shape the meat mix evenly around the egg, moulding it with your hands.
  6. Roll the meat-wrapped egg in the flour, shake off any excess, then dip into the beaten egg, followed by the breadcrumbs.
  7. Heat the oil in a deep pan. Shallow fry the eggs. Enjoy the scotch eggs with some tomato sauce :)

You can also use regular eggs instead of quail eggs. Use a half boiled regular egg to replace 1 quail egg.
