Pistachio Crusted Scotch Eggs


Oil for deep frying

4 large eggs, boiled for 7 minutes and peeled

1 lb seasoned pork sausage, casing removed

1 lb chorizo, casing removed

½ cup finely chopped pistachios

1 cup flour

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

2 cups bread crumbs

2 cup finely ground pistachios


Preheat the oil in a deep-fryer or Dutch oven to 350 – 375 degrees F.

Place pork sausage, chorizo, and chopped pistachios in a bowl. Combine will until mixture is homogeneous. Divide sausage mixture into 4 portions, flatten each into a disc large enough to encase an egg. Wrap an egg in a disc of sausage meat, seal edges with a bit of water.

Place breadcrumbs and ground pistachios in a shallow bowl and mix to combine thoroughly.

Carefully roll the covered egg in flour, then beaten eggs, and finally the breadcrumb pistachio mixture. Repeat for remaining eggs. 

Deep-fry the eggs until golden brown, about 8 – 9 minutes. Transfer eggs to a paper lined plate.
