What you'll need

4 small/medium eggs
240g Simon Howie Perthshire Black Pudding
200g Simon Howie Pork Link Sausages
70g plain flour seasoned with salt and black pepper

For the coating
1 egg beaten
275g breadcrumbs
1 litre of cooking oil for deep frying
Side Salad for Garnish

Putting it all together

1.Break down the black pudding to smaller size and place in a mixing bowl.

2.Remove the outer skin from the link sausages add to the bowl with the black pudding and mix until evening combined, season with black pepper.

3.Divide the mixture into 10 even-sized balls.

4. Place the 4 eggs on to boil in a pan of cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 3 minutes to encourage a tasty soft egg yolk. Drain the eggs and cool down under the cold tap. Remove the egg shells and place to the side.

5. Using 3 separate bowls; 1 for the breadcrumbs, 1 for the lightly beaten egg and 1 for the flour. (For extra flavour season the flour with salt and pepper).

6.Flatten the black pudding and sausage mix into 2 flat rounds about 6cm in diameter. Place one round in the palm of your hand, put your soft-boiled egg in the middle and then put the second flat round on top. Shape the black pudding around the egg, into an oval shape, make certain to seal it well. Repeat with the remaining black pudding and eggs.

7. Coat each shaped scotch egg with the seasoned flour and dip in the beaten egg mix. Roll scotch egg in breadcrumbs and place in the refrigerator for half an hour to chill.

8.Using a deep pan, fill with 1 litre of cooking oil and heat to 170°c - 175°c (Alternatively you can use a deep fat fryer if you have one). Fry 2 eggs at a time for around 6–8 minutes, ensure to continually turn them so they are an even golden colour. Remove the scotch eggs from the pan and leave to rest on kitchen paper towels to allow them to cool for a few minutes and drain the excess oil.
9. Serve with a side salad and enjoy 😊

    My first love was always farming, but at the age of twelve my dad suggested butchery, so I started as a Saturday boy in a local Perth shop.
