Nugwa, fondly called “Poo” by your truly enjoys trying out new recipes. She is always eager to create new and healthy recipes. She may not spend an excess amount of time in the kitchen; but I always look forward to the times when she does because her food is always tasty;)

 Hi guys, today’s post is by one of our guest food bloggers, Nugwa, who happens to be my adorably fashionable sister and partner in crime. On her last visit to my place she made scotch eggs for the first time and we enjoyed them. I am yet to make scotch eggs but they are one of the snacks I love… because of the eggs; if you have been following our blog for a while, then you will know that I really loooooooove eggs. They and doughnuts are one of the reasons I still patronize the Mr. Biggs outfit in Nigeria.

So if you are up to the task, why don’t you make your own scotch eggs in the comfort of your kitchen. Get creative and add whatever spices you desire to the coating and enjoy your homemade scotch egg.

    1. Hi Nike, If you live in Canada then you can find them in most grocery stores. If you live in Nigeria you can check one of the larger stores like Shoprite, or any other large supermarket. However, you can easily make your own breadcrumbs at home. All you need is dry bread, you can dry the bread in the sun(takes some hours to dry), on your kitchen table(takes 2 days) or in the oven (the fastest method), but you have to watch it so it doesn’t burn.
      After you dry the bread, put the slices one at a time and a ziploc bag, seal the bag, and use a rolling pin to crush the bread into crumbs or just pulse the bread in a food processor. I hope this helps. I will put up a post on how to make breadcrumbs shortly.

What do you think?
