Follow these steps and you'd have a delicious and filling scotch egg.


  • Eggs
  • cup of Flour
  • cup of Bread Crumbs
  • g of Minced Meat
  • tsp of Salt
  • cloves of Garlic
  • stems of Green chillies
  • Onion
  • tsp of Chilli Flakes
  • tbsp of Pepper
  • g of Mint Leaves
  • g of Mashed Potato


  • 1 Frying Pan
  • 1 Wok
  • 3 Bowls
  • 2 Plates


  • First of all, finely chop the onions, green chilies, garlic and mint leaves. Set aside on a plate.
  • Coat the eggs in flour.
  • Next take three bowls and add in flour, beaten egg and breadcrumbs.
  • Then boil your eggs and set aside in a bowl.
  • On a frying pan, cook your minced meat. Don't forget to add salt.
  • While it's cooking, add in your chopped veggies (except the mint leaves) along with chili flakes and pepper. Mix everything together.
  • When the meat is brown and cooked well, add the mint leaves.
  • Now add your mashed potatoes to the meat and combine well until the mixture is thick.
  • Take the pan off the heat and let it cool. Once it's cool enough to put your hands in, grab a handful of the mixture and fold it around the egg until the whole egg is covered. Repeat with the other two eggs.
  • Beat the remaining egg and dip one of the coated eggs in it. Then coat it in flour, dip in the beaten egg again and roll the egg in bread crumbs. Repeat with the other two.
  • Finally, deep fry the eggs.
  • When the outside is brown and crispy, take the eggs out and cut them in half.
  • And enjoy with some ketchup if you prefer!

Try this out and you can make your own scotch egg at home.


Make sure to cover the egg with a generous layer of minced meat so it doesn't break.
