  • Boil eggs by bringing enough water to cover the eggs to a boil, once boiled, using a spoon, carefully drop room temperature eggs into the pot/saucepan of boiling water and allow to boil for 11 minutes.
  • Immediately take off the heat and run cold water over eggs to cool them down quickly then peel. Place peeled eggs in a bowl and set side.
  • Season flour by mixing the salt, black pepper and thyme into the flour and transferring to a flat plate.

  • Pour vegetable oil into a large saucepan and place over medium heat.
  • Assemble the scotch eggs by rolling the eggs in seasoned flour (ensure boiled egg are still wet so flour adheres easily to the eggs).
