Chorizo. It’s a magical wonderful meat, but don’t ask what’s in it.
I like good old fashioned pub food, especially when it’s deep fried. So today we’re going to do a southwestern take on a British classic the Scotch egg. Only we’re going to spice it up with some chorizo. And we’re going to make
For the eggs:
5 hard boiled eggs (Some people like soft boiled eggs… But they’re wrong)
Half a pound of Chorizo (from a meat market, do not use the tube stuff its a waste of money.
Half a pound of mild flavor sausage.
1 and a half cups of flour
1 and a half cups of bread crumbs
1 large egg (for wash)
4 cups of oil (for frying)
For the Avacado Honey Mustard:
4 tablespoons of Honey Mustard
Hard boil your eggs and peel. Here’s a trick, after you’re done boiling fill your pot up with cold water, when all the hot water is gone crack each egg and put them back into the water for a few seconds. It makes it much easier to peel them.
Mix Sausage and Chorizo together to for one super sausage.
Make a small pancake from the sausage roughly the size of your egg (maybe a little bigger). Cradle the sausage cake in one hand. Dip one peeled boiled egg in flour and place it in middle of the sausage cake.
Slowly start to close the sausage around the egg. Using a cupping motion with your hand to press the sausage over the egg. If your fingers are too sticky put some cool water on your fingers.
Ok now you have a wrapped egg.
Get your flour, egg and bread crumbs in separate bowls. We’re going to use the dry hand wet hand method so your right hand will get wet your right hand will stay dry.
First Dip the suasage egg in the flour with your left hand.
Then with the right hand dip it in the egg and roll it around.
Then gently drop the egg in the bread crumbs and cover completely.
Do this with all of your eggs.
Now we’re going to deep fry them. Keep the heat on the low/medium setting. Remember the sausage is uncooked so we want to make sure and cook it long enough that it’s cooked through.
Gently lower the egg into the vegetable oil and cook for 5 minutes. Once it is golden brown and thoroughly cooked take it out of the oil and let rest for 5 minutes.
While it’s resting make your Avacado Honey Mustard by mixing the Avacado and Honey mustard together until desired consistency. I like mine a little more chunky.
You are all finished! Enjoy with a warm or cold beverage! Happy Dining.
