These Scotch Eggs are delicious!
Scotch Eggs are often referred to as “Breakfast in One Bite”. They can be great for an appetizer, snack, or even a light meal. While many people enjoy these around Easter, I know others, especially my Scottish friends, who have these at most family gatherings, including Thanksgiving and Christmas.
How to cook SCOTCH EGGS:
Traditionally, Scotch Eggs are deep fried, and that’s the way the recipe card here will read.
However, you can also cook them in an air fryer.
HOW TO COOK SCOTCH EGGS IN AN AIR FRYER:
Preheat Air Fryer to 350.
Follow the recipe below for preparing the scotch eggs, up to the point of frying.
Instead of deep frying, place eggs in an air fryer basket and cook for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
TIPS FOR HARD BOILED EGGS:
Place the eggs in a saucepan, add water to fully cover them and add 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring it to rolling boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Immediately drain the hot water and place the eggs in a bowl of ice-cold water to cool completely.
You can also buy Hard Boiled Eggs at the Supermarket to save time, but Fresh Made yield the best results.
Although, slightly older eggs tend to peel easier than fresh eggs.
DO YOU SERVE SCOTCH EGGS HOT OR COLD:
I have heard from friends that they serve theirs cold, however, I ALWAYS serve mine hot. They’re made with pork, and I am terrified of food poisoning, and when pork or chicken are involved, I always want those meats cooked thoroughly, and consumed while they’re at a safe temperature. I immediately put away leftovers, as well.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Cooked Scotch Eggs will keep in the fridge for 3-4 days.
If you are preparing Scotch Eggs in advance, and want to store them until you’re ready to cook, you can store Uncooked Scotch Eggs in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
CAN YOU FREEZE SCOTCH EGGS:
Yes! They can be frozen. Store in an airtight, freezer safe container that is clearly labeled with the contents and use by date. They can be frozen for up to 2 months.
HOW TO REHEAT SCOTCH EGGS:
I prefer to reheat in the oven .
DO NOT MICROWAVE LEFTOVER SCOTCH EGGS, THEY CAN EXPLODE.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place in an oven safe dish and heat for about 10 minutes or until desired temperature is reached.Look at this delicious & easy Scotch Eggs Recipe from When Is Dinner: Get full recipe & instructions at: https://whenisdinner.com/scotch-eggs/
