Scotch Eggs

Scotch Eggs

1 quart oil for frying

4 eggs

2 lbs. pork sausage

4 cups dried bread crumbs, seasoned

1 cup all-purpose flour

4 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees.

Place eggs in saucepan and cover with water. Bring to boil. Cover, remove from heat, and let eggs sit in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool and peel.

Flatten the sausage and make a patty to surround each egg. Very lightly flour the sausage and coat with beaten egg. Roll in bread crumbs to cover evenly.

Deep fry until golden brown, or pan fry while making sure each side is well cooked. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Cut in half and serve over a bed of lettuce and sliced tomatoes for garnish. If mustard is desired it looks beautiful over this.

Quiche

1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese

4 tsp all-purpose flour

1/2 cup cooked ham or bacon, diced

3 eggs

1 cup milk

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground dry mustard

1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

2 tbs chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

2 tbs chopped pimento peppers, garnish

In medium bowl, toss 4 teaspoons flour with the grated cheese. Sprinkle mixture into the pie shell. On top of cheese, sprinkle 1/2 cup of diced ham.

In medium bowl, combine eggs, milk or cream, and then add salt and mustard powder. Beat until smooth and pour over cheese and ham.

Put piece of plastic wrap large enough to overlap sides over top of quiche, then a piece of foil, and seal well around the edges. (plastic keeps the foil from sticking to the food). Place prepared quiche in freezer.

When ready to prepare, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove foil and plastic wrap. Put foil around edge of crust to protect it.

Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until filling is set and crust is golden brown. Garnish with parsley and pimiento if desired.
