Scotch Eggs | One Pot Chef

Scotch Eggs | One Pot Chef


Scotch Eggs are a classic dish from the British Isles, and is commonly associated with Scotland. A hard boiled egg is encased in a mixture of beef, pork and herbs, then crumbed and deep fried until golden and crispy. Served hot or cold, these little babies are great as a snack, a meal, by themselves or sliced up and served on sandwiches (my favourite!) – give it a go!




6 Hard Boiled Eggs (shells removed)
500g Pork Mince
500g Beef Mince
1 Small Brown Onion (finely grated)
1 Clove of Crushed Garlic (about a teaspoon)
1 Teaspoon of Mild Mustard
2 Tablespoons of Freshly Chopped Parsley
1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce
Salt and Pepper
2 Cups of Fresh Breadcrumbs
3 Eggs (lightly beaten)
1 Cup of Plain (All Purpose) Flour
Vegetable Oil (for deep frying)

Preparation Time: About 20 minutes (plus chilling time)
Cooking Time: About 6 minutes per batch


All measurements and temperatures are in Australian Metric.

    Hey there, just joined your channel and loving the recipes! Question: can you make a video on home made empanadas?
    Also, if you're not a fan of boiled eggs, what would you use as a substitute? Thanks. Looking forward to your future videos !

    You are, IMHO, the best cook on YT. Not just for the recipes but your bubbling personality.

    I've never heard of these, I can't wait to give them a try! I'm in the U.S. and I'm probably just clueless, but what is a brown onion? Is it like a Vidalia onion? I've heard of red onions (which are kind of purple) and yellow sweet onions, but not sure about the brown. Probably isn't a big deal, just wondering. Happy New Year, by the way, and congrats on 10 years!!

    Great video but I prefer soft boiled eggs so you get a runny centre.

    This is such a lovely video. I love the recipe, but what I love the most was when you were about to eat it! And then the crunch sounds as you bite into it and chew… I really should make Scotch Eggs. I've been wanting too for quite a while, but perhaps this video shall be my final push actually make some. Happy New Year, Chef!

    First, David, I want to tell you that every time I watch you and your infectious laugh, my heart is full of joy. Thank you. Second, hooray for a great looking recipe. We tried Scotch eggs for The first time at our Renaissance Festival. Dear husband liked it, but thought it could be better. I think we'll be trying your way soon. He watched with me today and he got "the look"! I'll be sure to come back and let you know!

    I just bought all of the ingredients for these last week, I'm going to try them deep fried instead of pan fried.
