Method

Step 1 - Fill a saucepan with cold water. Place four eggs in it. Bring to the boil. Cook the eggs for 5-6 mins from boiling point. Once done, drain the water. Fill the saucepan again with cold water and set aside for the eggs to cool down in the cold water.

Step 2 - While the eggs are cooking, mix together the sausage meat, turkey mince, mustard, mixed herbs and freshly grated nutmeg.

Step 3 - Once cooled down, peel the eggs and set aside.

Step 4 - Cut one large square of cling film, put a quarter of the meat mix in the middle. Cover it with another large square of cling film. Flatten with a rolling pin to an even 1/2cm layer. This will ensure the eggs are wrapped in an even thickest of meat.

Step 5 - Remove top cling film. Place one egg in the middle of the meat and carefully roll the meat around the egg (help yourself with the bottom layer cling film).

Step 6 - Shape meat evenly around the egg, cutting out chunkier bits on each side. Carefully shape the meat tightly around the egg with your hands. Place the egg on a plate.

Step 7 - Repeat step 4 to 6 with the other three eggs (you can reuse the same cling film squares).

Step 8 - Put the eggs in the fridge to chill for 15 mins.

Step 9 - Preheat the oven to 200°C / 180°C fan / Gas Mark 6. Line an oven tray with parchment paper.

Step 10 - Place oven tray in front of you, along with scotch eggs. Place flour, beaten egg and breadcrumb mix in individual bowls. Line up the flour, the beaten egg and breadcrumb mix bowls in a line.

Step 11 - Coat each scotch egg in flour, then in the egg, then in the breadcrumbs mix. For a second layer of breadcrumbs, roll again each scotch egg in the beaten egg mixture followed by another coating of breadcrumbs.

Step 12 - Line up the scotch eggs carefully on the oven tray as you go. Brush or spray with oil.

Step 13 - Bake for 25 - 30mins until golden. Once done serve warm or cold with salad and condiments. Put the eggs in the fridge to chill for 15 mins.
