Chicken Scotch Eggs
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper
  2. Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil. Add eggs and simmer for 7 minutes. Drain and stand in cold water. Crack shells and gently peel. Place into a bowl of iced water
  3. Place chicken mince, dill, parsley, HP sauce, Dijon mustard, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, salt and pepper in a large bowl and stir until combined. Divide mixture into 4 even portions
  4. Combine remaining breadcrumbs and parmesan into a bowl. Place flour into a bowl and whisk eggs in another bowl
  5. Roll an egg in flour, shaking off excess. Place a portion of mince mixture in the palm of your hand and flatten meat. Place an egg in the centre. Form mince around egg, pressing edges together so egg is completely covered. Coat with flour, whisked egg and breadcrumb mixture. Reroll in whisked egg and breadcrumbs for a thicker crust. Place on prepared baking tray
  6. Spray scotched egg with olive oil. Bake for 25 minutes or until egg is firm to the touch and golden. Serve with chutney, baby rocket and cornichons

Made this recipe tonight. It was a bit fiddly to make but well worth it! It was unusual & delicious. I have a couple of questions: Should it be eatin hot or cold? Could it be made with alternative minces eg pork & veal?
