1. In case you are using sausages, remember they are pre-spiced so you might not have to add any seasoning to it.
2. Poultry seasoning can be replaced by salt, black pepper, black salt and cumin powder (1/4 tsp of each). Garlic powder can be replaced by crushed garlic( 2 cloves) and salt to taste.
In a mixing bowl, mix the ground meat of your choice with poultry seasoning, garlic powder and nutmeg powder.
Roll the egg on the flour and then cover the egg completely with the ground meat mixture. Rolling the egg into the flour eases the spreading of meat on the egg. Repeat for all the eggs.
Roll each meat covered egg in the beaten egg and then in the bread crumbs. Then place all the eggs on the baking tray.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 10 – 12 Mins. or until brown and crispy.
Scotch Eggs are ready. Serve hot or cold as per your liking with a chutney of your choice.
