Pistachio Crusted Scotch Eggs
Oil for deep frying
4 large eggs, boiled for 7 minutes and peeled
1 lb seasoned pork sausage, casing removed
1 lb chorizo, casing removed
½ cup finely chopped pistachios
1 cup flour
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups bread crumbs
2 cup finely ground pistachios
Preheat the oil in a deep-fryer or Dutch oven to 350 – 375 degrees F.
Place pork sausage, chorizo, and chopped pistachios in a bowl. Combine will until mixture is homogeneous. Divide sausage mixture into 4 portions, flatten each into a disc large enough to encase an egg. Wrap an egg in a disc of sausage meat, seal edges with a bit of water.
Place breadcrumbs and ground pistachios in a shallow bowl and mix to combine thoroughly.
Carefully roll the covered egg in flour, then beaten eggs, and finally the breadcrumb pistachio mixture. Repeat for remaining eggs.
Deep-fry the eggs until golden brown, about 8 – 9 minutes. Transfer eggs to a paper lined plate.
