My Lamb Scotch Eggs recipe has become a personal favourite with my friends – they’re easy to eat, not at all greasy or oily and are a delicious snack that can be eaten at any time of the day.
Scotch eggs seem to be everywhere at the moment – in food magazines, on television, in cook books and have become a re-discovered treat amongst chefs. It’s fair to say everyone is getting egg’cited for these fun creations. I decided to take a classic picnic favourite and transform it by baking instead of deep frying the scotch egg and using minced lamb as an alternative to pork.
These Lamb Scotch Eggs are perfect for picnics, hearty and filling snacks that you can take to work with you and great for birthday parties too. I know that an hour may seem like a long time to make these, but half of the time is spent crafting the egg and the last half hour can be used for cleaning up whilst the eggs are baking away!
Do note, if you’re a vegetarian (or would simply like to try the vegetarian version as an omnivore) you can alternatively use a mix of chopped, pan-fried mushrooms with feta cheese in the mix OR mushrooms and chickpeas, similar to a falafel. These are SO much fun to make and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
