Scotch quails’ eggs with panko breadcrumbs

Party food doesn’t get better than this!

Christmas, New Year’s Eve, that beautifully foggy time between the two where you’re never sure what day it is… However you look at it, this time of year is full of gatherings!

Party food is a large part of hosting at this time of year, and these fancy scotch quails’ eggs tick all the right boxes. Take a look at the recipe below – they’re easier to make that you might think!

Scotch quails' eggs

Scotch quails' eggs with panko breadcrumbs

Servings 12 people

Ingredients

  • 450 g good pork sausagemeat
  • 12 quails' eggs, hard-boiled
  • 1 tbsp sage
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 free-range eggs beaten
  • 50 g breadcrumbs
  • 50 g panko breadcrumbs
  • celery salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6, then line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

  2. Place the sausagemeat in a bowl with the sage and mix together with a fork. Divide the meat into 12 equal portions. 

  3. Take a portion of the sausagemeat and flatten it in the palm of your hand. Put one of the eggs in the centre and wrap the sausagemeat around the egg. Roll between your hands to make a rounded and even-shaped ball. Repeat with the remaining eggs and sausagemeat to make 12 balls. 

  4. Put the flour, beaten egg and breadcrumbs in three separate shallow bowls. Season the flour with the celery salt. Dip the eggs in the flour to lightly coat, then in the beaten egg, and finally in the breadcrumbs. Repeat with the remaining eggs and place them on the baking tray. 

  5. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until golden. Cook’s perk: cut one open to make sure the sausagemeat is cooked throughout, then eat when satisfied
