Nigerian Scotch Egg Recipe :
- 3 hard boiled eggs
- 200g minced sausage meat(use Satis meat if you are in Nigeria)
(I minced my sausage meat with onions, but don't do that if this is your first time)
- 1/2 teaspoon stock powder/stock cube
- A pinch of nutmeg
-  A pinch of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 50 grams plain flour,
- 1 raw egg, beaten
- 50 grams breadcrumbs (click to see how to make breadcrumbs)
- vegetable oil, for deep frying

Nigerian Scotch Egg preparation:

  • a. Mince or grind the sausage meat, if you haven't done that already
  • b. Boil the eggs , peel of the shell and set aside
  • c. Break the raw egg, whisk it and set aside
1. Place the minced sausage meat into a bowl;add the stock powder, nutmeg, black pepper and salt. Mix thoroughly until all the ingredients are well incorporated .
2. Now take some of the meat and flatten it on your palm.
Roll the hard boiled egg on the flour and then place it on the flattened meat on your other palm. 
Roll the meat over the egg , until the egg is completely covered with the sausage meat.

3. Next, deep the meat covered egg into the raw egg, making sure that the meat covered egg is covered with the raw egg.

4. Then transfer the meat-covered-egg into the bowl with the breadcrumbs and roll the egg in it, until the egg is completely covered with the bread crumbs.
Repeat the process for the remaining eggs and set aside.

5. Now, heat up the vegetable oil on medium heat and  and fry the scotch eggs until brown.

Then transfer unto a sieve lined with paper towels

Serve and enjoy your Nigerian Scotch egg with your favorite beverage or drinks. Enjoy!

  1. Hey Nky! I'm am so excited you took the time to post these recipes. Quick question though, i was wondering what kind of sausage meet will be the best to use for the scotch eggs? I usually don't eat sausage from here as most of it comes out very greasy unlike Satis. I was thinking maybe to use ground turkey, what do u think?

      If you don't have an oven , break the fresh bread into tiny bits and leave on a tray to dry out in room temperature, then grind in a blender.

    2. and yes you can use ground beef, though it won't taste the same.

    Thanks for making my day and saving me from embarrassment. My 8 year old daughter learnt how to make puff puff in school last week and she wanted to make some for the family today but she only wrote out method without recipe.

  23. I love making Nigerian food especially snacks, thanks 2 u. My question is based on d scotch egg. And my question goes like this: why do you only have to boil 3 eggs? Can u boil more if u want? My birthday is coming up and it' mostly going to be filled with my white friends(not being racist) and I want everyone to have enough and to like them. So can I make more than 3eggs? Thank u.

    1. You can boil as many eggs as you want, but that means that you'll also have to increase the quantity of ingredients used.

    1. I'm in Spain and can't recommend a particular brand, but you can try the fresh sausages,the type that is usually grilled. It works good too.
