Scotch Eggs Recipe And A Bit Of History

Fort Lauderdale Personal Chef



According to Culinary Delights of Yorkshire, they originated in Whitby, Yorkshire, England, in the 19th century, and were originally covered in fish paste rather than sausage meat. They were supposedly named after William J. Scott & Sons, a well-known eatery which sold them.  However, Fortnum & Mason, a London department store known for its food products, maintains that it created Scotch eggs in 1738 for wealthy travelers on carriage rides.  We like our yolks runny, but not too runny.  They are great for fishing or picnics or even a lunch or light dinner with a green salad.  



Serves 4


6 eggs (large) at room temperature

6 English style sausages/bangers ( if you can not find them try a mild Italian Style)

1 teaspoon/5ml dry English mustard

1/4 teaspoon mace

1/2 cup/125ml/64g Flour

2 cups/500ml/200g dry breadcrumbs (we used fresh and they came out fine)

1 quart/liter of vegetable, peanut, or grape seed oil 


In the large rounded part of 4 of the eggs make a hole with a pin.   Bring a pot of water to the boil .  Carefully lower the eggs in the water.  Cover and remove from heat.  Let stand 7 minutes.  Drain water, crack the shells with the back of a spoon and plunge into iced water.  Let cool for 4-5  minutes.  Starting at the large edge, peel the eggs. Remove sausage from the casings and mix with the spices and herbs.  Divide into 4 equal sized balls.  Place a piece of plastic film on the counter.  Place 1 ball in the center. Place another piece of film on top and flatten out into a thin disk large enough to easily wrap the eggs in.  Remove the top piece of film and pull up the sides to completely cover the egg.  Gently form in your hands to even thickness and in the shape of an egg.  In 3 separate plates place the flour, beaten eggs, and the breadcrumbs.  Heat the oil on medium high heat in a large high sided skillet (the oil should be about 1/3 up the sides) to 375F/190C or just shimmering.  First roll the sausage encased egg in the flour, then the egg, then coat with crumbs.  Gently place into the heated oil.  Let cook for 10-12 minutes rolling them around occasionally to ensure even and thorough cooking)  They should be lovely and dark golden brown.  Remove from oil and let drain on a rack over a piece of kitchen paper towel.  Serve hot warm or room temp with a bit of spicy English mustard if you want.

The Insulin Resistance Diet Protocol

NORMAN SCHMIDT DIABETES Insulin is a major issue for many individuals. While insulin is a natural part of a healthy system, when the body isn’t working perfectly then insulin can become a problem that results in pre-diabetes, diabetes, and weight loss, among many other issues. The rate of diabetes could easily become an epidemic that overwhelms the medical industry, especially as some numbers predict the rate of cases doubling from 190 million to 380 million over the next two and a half decades [1]. The good news is that in most cases insulin production in the body, and the body’s ability to properly handle it, is most often a dietary issue. This means that a proper eating plan that is carefully followed can be enough for most people to overcome their insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is a warning flag for diabetes and can make weight loss extremely difficult even for individuals who shouldn’t have a problem dropping pounds. This is where  the Insulin Resistance Die
