Grain-Free Scotch Eggs:
- 7 boiled and peeled eggs
- uncooked/raw ground sausage
- cooking oil
- Pink of salt & pepper on each egg
- chopped jalapenos (optional!)
Make a flat circle of sausage, like a large patty. Place the peeled boiled egg in the center and wrap the sausage all around the egg. Smooth it around and make sure the egg is not showing.
Your oil needs to be consistently about 190 degrees Celsius. If it's too low your food will get all greasy and too hot and it will smoke and burn (for some reason my husband is an oil expert, who knew?) I don't like to fry things with oil, so I didn't much and needed to roll them around to get all sides cooked. How long you cook the egg depends on how thick the sausage around the egg is. The thicker the sausage, the longer you cook. I made the mistake on the first one to take it out too quickly. It looked completely cooked on the outside so I thought it was done, but once I cut it open the sausage directly around the inside of the egg was still very raw. You don't want to eat raw sausage. My advice is to give it a little more time on all sides once it looks done.
