8 Eggs 400 g Sausage Meat 200 g Sage, Onion and Apple Stuffing Mix prepared weight Small Bunch Fresh Thyme Chopped Pinch Salt and Pepper 50 g Plain Flour 100 g Breadcrumbs Oil for deep frying
Place 6 of the eggs into a pan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and continue boiling for 4 minutes. After the eggs have been boiled, remove from the heat and place under cold running water for 2-3 minutes. Peel the shells off and leave the eggs to one side. Prepare the stuffing and allow to cool completely. Place the sausage meat into a bowl and add the fresh herbs, salt and pepper and the stuffing. Mix together until combined. Beat the 2 extra eggs and set to one side in a dish, in separate dishes, place the flour into one and the breadcrumbs into another. Use some of the flour to coat your hands and take a small handful of the sausage meat and encase each egg with it. Dip each coated egg into the flour, followed by a coating of the beaten egg and finally coat completely with the breadcrumbs. Heat your oil to around 160oc and carefully immerse each egg into it and cook for about 8 minutes until crisp and golden. Transfer the eggs onto kitchen paper to remove any excess oil and serve either warm or cold.
