Nigerian Scotch Egg Recipe :

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

    Hey Nky! I'm from the US but I can't find any satis meat :(. Is there any thing else I could use? Or any specific brand? I tired some breakfast sausage from Walmart and it did not turn out tasty (too salty and breakfast like)

      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.

    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.

    • Nky Lily Lete

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

    Thanks for making my day and saving me from embarrassment.

    • Nky Lily Lete
      May 3, 2014 / 5:43 pm

      Hi dear, breadcrumbs is so easy to make. Simply spread out some bread slices in the oven and leave to dry, then grind into crumbs in a blender.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.

    • Nky Lily Lete
      May 3, 2014 / 5:46 pm

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

    Hey Nky! Thanks for posting these amazing recipes. I was wondering if you can maybe suggest a good sausage for the scotch eggs? I usually try to avoid eating them as they are super greasy unlike Satis…..I'm was also thinking to use ground turkey, what do u think?

    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?

    • Nky Lily Lete
      December 4, 2013 / 11:53 am

      Thanks dear.. I use any brand I see here , but since you don't like sausage meat ground turkey will be good too. I have tried it with chicken and it was delish.. you'll love it 🙂
