Scotch Eggs

Despite its name, Scotch Eggs did not originate from Scotland but in Britain in 1738.  It became popular as a picnic food and then later on became a favorite in pubs and fairs.   If you are tired of the ordinary egg dish, this could be a good variation. 

When my husband and I tried this wonderful dish, we found out that they're quite heavy on the tummy.  What more if you eat them with fried rice?  Why don't you try cooking this one and enjoy its  lovely taste.

500 g minced beef
6 pcs hardboiled eggs
2 tsp garlic granules
2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp plain flour
1 egg beaten
bread crumbs

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl except of the eggs (hardboiled and beaten) and the breadcrumbs.  Use your hands to make sure everything is well distributed.
Remove the shells of the hardboiled eggs. 
Coat each hardboiled egg with the meat mixture.  Dip each scotch egg in the beaten egg and then roll into the breadcrumbs.
Deep fry the scotch eggs.
Serve with rice and your choice of dips. 

Note: You can remove nutmeg if you want.
A comment or two will be appreciated...
