Easy Recipes: Scotch Eggs with Sweet & Sour Sauce

I first tasted Scotch Eggs when my friend from downstairs, Edz, the woman who taught me how to make Chicken Fajitas, brought it over for dinner with me and the kids. Our husbands were both out of town on a kids ministry event and since we live in the same apartment building, we decided to have dinners together during the time our husbands were away.

I learned later on that Scotch Eggs are common in the UK. You can find them being sold in corner shops and supermarkets, much like how you see Kwek Kwek at the mall food court.  They’re considered “picnic” food and are served with a variety of sauce options – from ranch, to mustard sauces and hot sauces, and even gravy.

I Love Cooking on Facebook

The Scotch Eggs recipe I’m sharing with you was shared by Marjie B. Bacarisas of the I Love Cooking community on Facebook.

I love that community! People share photos and recipes of their food, and they don’t even have to be sophisticated shots or recipes. It’s just a bunch of Filipinos who love to cook and share what they serve on their table.

I think I did the recipe justice, so I thought of sharing. You know me, I love trying out new recipes and talking about them here. So here you go:

4-5 Medium Hard boiled eggs

1/4 C Cornstarch
1 Egg

Coating:

1 Egg
Flour
Bread crumbs
Coconut Oil (for deep frying. You can actually use any oil, but I strongly recommend Coconut Oil for health reasons)

2. Melt the cornstarch in little water, then mix in flour and egg.
3. Put together the meat mixture and the cornstarch mixture.
4. Get a fistful of the blended mixture and flatten it in the palm of your hand.
5. Place a hard boiled egg in the middle and wrap the blended mixture around it. Follow the same procedure for all hard boiled eggs.
6. Roll each of the meat-wrapped eggs on bread crumbs before deep-frying.

How to make the Sweet & Sour sauce:

1. Mix together all ingredients in a bowl.
2. Heat over low fire while stirring consistently.
3. It’s ready once it thickens slightly.

  1. Uy! This is something I would like to try at home. My boys are easily enticed sa mga something new. They love my sweet and sour meatballs and they may like this as well since mukha silang same lang naman. Good thing we did our market just this morning. Kumpleto ako sa ingredients. Thanks for this.

  2. I haven’t cooked a sweet and sour sauce recipe, maybe I’ll try this muna before I cook with pork and fish. I have joined a few food and cooking communities at malaking tulong talaga kasi I get feedback from posted recipes. I think I’ll join I Love Cooking din hehe. Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Like Shalene, I haven’t cooked a sweet and sour sauce recipe yet. I’m not fond of this food kasi kaya di ko niluluto. But this is a good idea, parang morcon na may egg sa gitna.

  4. I personally love the sweet and sour sauce lalo na kapag tilapya yung partner hehe. Nakakaganang kumain. Haven’t tried this one though, sounds easy and fun to prepare. Hope my kid would love this too. Thanks for sharing mommy!

  5. I haven’t tasted scotch eggs yet (not that I’m aware of). By the look at it, I am reminded of the yummy bola-bola that my uncle and mama used to cook. Maybe this one’s a lot more delicious since there’s egg. Now I want to eat! lol.

  6. This actually made me feel nostalgic! I used to eat this dish A LOT when I was in grade school because our favorite “cafeteria” served it. It’s delicious! I didn’t know it originated from the UK!

  7. Great job! I am having a hard time making the sweet and sour sauce. I might try to follow this instead and will hopefully work. So hard to achieve the consistency I want!

  8. Oh wow, this got me curious. I like that it’s easy and does not require a huge budget to make. Plus, eggs are always safe to serve because they’re loved by most people.

  9. I think this pairing is genius! I would have never thought to make a Scotch egg like this! Sweet and sour is a great flavor to accentuate the egg and beef.

  10. Scotch eggs are one of my favorite recipes. You just can’t beat the flavor combination. I think sweet and sour is a great combo with them.

  11. I love kwek kwek! And it looks very similar to sweet and sour meatballs, interesting and sort off not that hard to prepare. Will try to make one soon.

  12. I know it’s weird, but I’ve always eaten Scotch Eggs with mustard. Hahaha! I haven’t thought about pairing it with Sweet & Sour, but it looks delicious and, to be honest, I I feel like experimenting too! Thank you for the recipe that was easy to follow. It’s even better that the ingredients isn’t difficult to find.

  13. One of Nathan’s favorite food is eggs! For sure magugustuhan niya to if lutuin ko sa kanya. Actually first time ko malaman ang Scotch Egg. I hope I don’t mess it up. Will do this one of these days!

  14. WE must try this at home! The ingredients are easy to find at mukhang madali lang lutuin pala. Thanks Momshie!

  15. my favorite ulam! this goes perfectly with rice. suddenly i missed this. Thanks for the recipe – i will try this tonight.

  16. This recipe looks absolutely delicious and yummy. Plus the creaminess of the sauce makes it enticing and tempting. I’ll definitely make this for the family. Loved it!
