Haggis Scotch Eggs

 Apologies for the tiny photo, I am using my iPad for the first time and experiencing a slight technical hitch!

These Scotch eggs are so easy to make, I am not putting quantities here as I just used what I had in the fridge - six eggs, which I hard boiled, a big handful of haggis to about two big handfuls of pork mince. 

Mix the meats together and season. Take a quantity, about a small handful, flatten into an rough oval and lay on a larger piece of cling film. Place an egg on top and gather the film and meat around the egg, gently massaging and teasing the meat around the egg until it it completely encased.

Now roll the covered egg in flour, then beaten egg and finally toss in breadcrumbs.

Ideally you can deep fry until the meat is cooked and breadcrumbs golden. I did shallow fry these but it was tricky - by the time the breadcrumbs were golden , the meat was nowhere near hot enough. So I started them off in the oven, about 20 mins at 180, I then shallow fried them.
