Fool Proof Scotch Eggs

While I don’t often run recipes on this blog, I do occasionally, especially when I see something out there that looks particularly delicious. Here is a tasty morsel from the Tassy Bakes blog (who has not appeared in my reblog list before now), with instructions on how to make a perfect Scotch Egg. This is a pretty difficult art, and just browsing the photos from this article makes me hungry! I’ve found eggs are really hard to get “just right” and Scotch Eggs evidently even more so, therefore this article is really useful for those of you game to try. Great job Tassy!



I rarely post other people’s recipes on here but I was so impressed with Barney Desmazery’s  foolproof scotch egg recipe I just had to share!

With cooked ham, stuffing and herbs incorporated into the sausage meat layer, these scotch eggs are really flavoursome, and, most importantly, the yolks are left runny if you stick to the exact cooking time!

If you’d like to try these out (and I strongly recommend you do) find the recipe here.


Try incorporating bacon rashers to the sausage meat and blitz until smooth to add a smoky flavour.


I added paprika into the sausage meat for a spicy flavour! I would serve with salad and piccalilli (I used the chilli sweetcorn relish I made over Christmas!).

  1. I love scotch eggs and am so shocked as is anotherfoodieblogger to see how wonderful your photo’s are. Not that you are not capable just something I have never seen before and making these eggs is tricky. You did a great job both in execution of the recipe and photographing. I did read the recipe and it sounds wonderful.
