Scotch Eggs


1pound pork sausage meat
2teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
4hard-cooked eggs, peeled
1tablespoon white whole wheat flour
1/8teaspoon salt
1/8teaspoon ground black pepper
1egg, beaten
2/3cup panko bread crumbs
1quart peanut oil for deep frying


1.In a medium bowl, mix together the pork sausage and Worcestershire sauce. Combine the flour, salt and pepper; mix into the sausage.
2.Divide the sausage into four equal parts. Mold each part around one of the hard-cooked eggs, rolling between your hands to shape. Place the beaten egg and bread crumbs into separate dishes. Dip the balls into the egg, then roll in the bread crumbs until coated. Shake off any excess.
3.Heat the oil in a large saucepan or deep fryer to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C), or until a cube of bread dropped into the oil turns brown in 1 minute. Lower the eggs carefully into the hot oil. Fry for 5 minutes, or until deep golden brown.
