Making chilli Scotch Eggs

Scotch eggs - they're awesome, aren't they? Especially with chipotle chilli and chorizo in the mix - yum!
Finished, cooked Scotch eggs

Here's the kit.

  • Decent quality sausages (80%+ meat or grind your own pork shoulder or belly pork)
  • Celery seeds, rock salt, black pepper
  • Eggs
  • Chorizo and chipotle
Scotch egg ingredients

Boil up some eggs, but not too hard. 5 minutes is plenty. They cook more later, so the aim is the softest set egg you can get out of a shell unruptured - much less than 4 minutes and it is liable to break on shelling!
