”Scotched” Smokey Mesquite BBQ Egg
- Yield: 12 Eggs
- Prep Time: 30 Minutes
- Cook Time: 20 Minutes
scotch egg ingredients
- 1 dozen Eggs
- 2 Tbsp White Vinegar
- 2 cups Flour
- Whole Milk
- 1 package Kraft Fresh Take Smokey Mesquite BBQ
- Fill a large sauté pan with enough water to fill it ¾ of the way full. Add the white vinegar to the water and turn to high heat.
- When the water is boiling, reduce the heat to medium-high heat and add 4-6 eggs to the water (depending on the size of the pan). Let cook for 3 minutes or until the white portions are cooked through but the yolk is still runny. Do not move the eggs around a lot.
- Once the eggs are cooked remove from the water and drain on a paper towel. Finish cooking the rest of the eggs. When they are cooled, remove the extra flimsy egg whites from the egg before dredging.
- Next fill 3 separate bowls: one with flour, another with milk, and finally one with the Kraft Fresh Take Smokey Mesquite BBQ. Add enough oil to a nonstick pan that it is 1/2-inch deep. Turn to high heat.
- Now, dredge the eggs first in the flour gently, then dip in the milk, and finish by coating in the Fresh Take. Next place the eggs in the hot oil.
- Cook the eggs for 1 minute, or until the cheese crisps up. Flip the eggs and cook on the second side for another minutes. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.
- Serve warm with Hot Bacon Vinaigrette over top.
scotched egg tips and tricks
- You can poach the eggs in advance to make this recipe a little easier. Poach the eggs and then place them on a cookie sheet with a lip that has water on the bottom so the eggs don’t stick. When you are ready to fry, dry the eggs with a paper towel and dredge away.
- Make sure when you are frying to use a non-stick skillet. Since there is cheese in the Fresh Take it will easily stick to the bottom of the pan and you risk popping the yolk of the egg.
