A Traditional English Scotch Egg with a Spicy Twist

Makes 10
10 Soft boiled eggs

2 lbs of Sausagemeat

6oz Chorizo

1 Raw egg (whisked)

7oz Breadcrumbs

16.9 fl oz of Vegetable cooking oil


Start by boiling 10 eggs for roughly 5 mins, depending on how soft you like your egg, then run them under cold water to cool them down. Tap each egg on a kitchen surface and roll them under your palm, we find this the easiest way to peel an egg. Put the eggs to one side whilst you prepare your sausagemeat.   Remove all packaging from the sausagemeat and empty into a large bowl. Finely chop the chorizo and then add it to your sausagemeat. Use your hands to work the sausagemeat and mix in the chorizo. Once you have done this, take a small handful of the sausagemeat and roll it into a ball then flatten it out into a patty in your hand.   Place one egg on top of the patty and wrap the meat around the egg as far as possible, take a another small handful of the sausagemeat and patch up the remaining area to form a ball around the egg.   Dip the ball in the whisked raw egg mixture, ensure it is all covered. Take a large plate and spread the bread crumbs across it, take the egg soaked ball and roll it around in the breadcrumbs. Repeat this process for the other eggs.   Heat a pan of cooking oil until it is at roughly 330 degrees farenheit, make sure the oil is deep enough to cover the eggs and then cook roughly 2-3 at a time for 5 minutes each. You can serve these hot or cold, as an entreee or as a delicious picnic snack, enjoy!

Mother Earth News Fair – Asheville, North Carolina

The Mother Earth News Fair is a sustainable lifestyle event which is held across 6 different locations annually. Omlet were lucky enough to attend the Asheville fair in North Carolina over the weekend of the 6th and 7th of May.



The shows gates opened promptly at 9.00am Saturday morning with floods of people entering to experience the fairs many workshops, talks and trade stalls. Exhibitors ranged from organic foods to tractors and everything in between. We were located opposite the GRIT stage which hosted a number of very engaging talks including some wonderful chicken keeping seminars from Patricia Foreman.


Despite the mixed weather conditions Saturday brought with it numbers of people still continued to browse the all the fair had to offer. Sunday the clouds had cleared and beautiful sunshine meant the crowds continued to explore the events diverse range of stands and lectures with many taking advantage of the weekend pass and returning for the second day.


Our team were on hand throughout the show to answer any questions or queries with regards to our products we were thrilled to see so many chicken keeping enthusiasts!


Keep your eyes peeled for Omlet at the next Mother Earth News Fair in Burlington, Vermont on the 10th and 11th of June.
