Scotch egg with asparagus, spinach and a mustard dressing

Try this spring update on a classic recipe from Nick Orr, head chef at The Manor House Hotel in Moreton-in-Marsh

Ingredients

  • 2 large free-range eggs
  • 300g sausage meat, seasoned
  • 12 asparagus spears
  • 100g spinach
  • 1tbs coarse grain mustard
  • 100ml rapeseed oil
  • 1tbs sherry or white wine vinegar
  • 50g panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 150ml milk

Method

  • Soft boil the eggs for 5 mins and cool with cold running water.
  • Trim the asparagus tips and cook them for 3 mins, then refresh under cold water.
  • Peel the eggs carefully, then roll out the seasoned sausage meat to 10mm thick and carefully wrap it around the eggs completely.
  • Make the egg wash by whisking 2 eggs together with the milk.
  • Roll the Scotch eggs in seasoned flour, then egg wash, then breadcrumbs and set aside in the fridge
  • To make the dressing, add the mustard and vinegar to a bowl, then slowly add the oil while whisking. Once all the oil has been added, whisk a little boiling water to it – this will help it to emulsify. Set aside.
  • Deep fry the Scotch eggs until lightly golden and cook in the oven at 180°C for 6 mins.

To Serve

  • Wilt the spinach and warm up the asparagus spears in a pan with a little foaming butter then place them on the centre of a plate. Cut the egg while hot, place on top of the greens and drizzle with the dressing.

The delicious Butcombe Gold by Butcombe Brewing Co is full of character and would make a tasty partner to these Scotch eggs. Made with a blend of Caramalt and Maris Otter malt and brewed using lashing of English Fuggles hops, this beer is full of fresh vitality with herbal, earthy notes.
