Pellet Smoked Scotch Eggs

Pellet Smoked Scotch Eggs

Scotch eggs are a classic snack, and cooking them on a pellet grill is a tasty way to go.

Serves – 4
Total Time – about 2 hours

Tip - I prefer to eat these cold as the smoke is a little more apparent. They are also easier to slice.

Ingredients

For the sauce

  • ¼ cup Dijon Mustard
  • ¼ cup Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. Chives, chopped
  • 1 tsp. Black Pepper
  • squeeze of Lemon
  • Gherkins or any Pickle


Method

  1. To boil the eggs, fill a small pot with cold water, add the 4 eggs. When the water starts to simmer set a timer. 7 minutes for hard boiled, 5 minutes for soft. Cool under cold running water immediately.
  2. Peel the eggs and set aside.
  3. Set up a breading station with flour, 2 beaten eggs, and breadcrumbs each in a separate bowl.
  4. Divide the meat evenly 4 ways and flatten into patties. Roll the eggs in flour and then wrap a sausage patty around each egg, molding it to evenly cover.
  5. Carefully roll the sausage wrapped eggs in flour, dip it in beaten egg, then roll in breadcrumbs to completely coat, set aside.
  6. Set a pellet grill to the smoke setting.
  7. Place each egg on a small square of parchment paper and set on the smoker.
  8. Smoke for 15 minutes, then turn up the dial to 350˚ F. Cook for one hour.
  9. After one hour rotate the eggs and turn the heat up to 450F, for a further 20 minutes then set aside to rest.
  10. To make the sauce, stir all ingredients together.
  11. Serve with the sauce and pickles. These are ready to eat or can be chilled for later.
