Scotch Eggs

Hard Boiled Scotch Eggs

For this Scotch Eggs Recipe, start by boiling the eggs, then set out 3 bowls for dipping.  Season the flour with the salt, pepper and paprika in one bowl.  In another, beat the eggs to make a wash.  In the third bowl you will add the bread crumbs.  If you are using the stuffing, add the crumbs to a food processor with the parsley and pulse until smooth.  Cut the Sausage into 12 equal portions, then press and roll flat until each is about 1/4 of an inch thick, then wrap around each boiled egg pinching off the excess and pressing with both palms together with light pressure to form each shape.  Then roll in flour, then the egg wash and bread crumbs, again applying pressure with both palms but firmly to assure the crumbs stick.  Then let them rest for 5 minutes before frying.  For deep fryers, cook at 350 for 3 1/2 Minutes.  For pan frying, cook in 1 1/2 inches of oil for about 8 minutes, on low heat, turning over once.  Dab on paper towels then serve your Scotch Eggs or refrigerate.
