SCORCHED EGG

One thing I love about this recipe is the simplicity. Being from a typical African culture I can assure you this dish is such a delicacy that will leave you craving for more. It can be served as breakfast or for whatever occasion you prefer. The recipe is a derivative of the meatball recipe. You will need the following ingredients

  • 5oog Sausage meat
  • 5 thyme springs, finely chopped
  • 6 whole eggs
  • Black Pepper for seasoning
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • Some home baking flour
  • Some bread crumbs

Place your sausage meat in a bowl, add the finely chopped thyme and some black pepper to taste. Mix the ingredients well and allow the mixture to rest for 30 minutes in the fridge.

Sausage meat

Bring some water infused with vinegar and the eggs to boil for 9 minutes. Vinegar is used so as to ensure firmness of the egg in case it breaks. Once the eggs have boiled place them in cold water then carefully peel them. Allow the eggs to fully cool.

Boiled eggs

 

Carefully wrap a portion of the sausage meat all round all eggs. Ensure all the surfaces of the eggs have been covered.

For the surface to appear crunchy you will need to breadcrumb it using flour, egg, and breadcrumbs. Dust the sausage-covered egg with flour, make sure the surface is fully dusted.(This will ensure when you deep it in the beaten egg, the egg will fully coat the surface) .Next deep it in the beaten egg and finally dip it in the breadcrumbs and ensure all surfaces are coated well.

Breadcrumbing process

In a frying pan bring some oil to boil.Slowly deep in the egg and cook for roughly 7 – 8 minutes until deep golden or till the meat is fully cooked. Serve hot.
