Theme: Green

What to make for a Homeschooling Potluck Dinner with the Theme of Green, in honour of St. Patty’s Day?

What else!! but Scotch Eggs!
How did I come to this conclusion? Well, I was hungry for Scotch Eggs and I could have fun with the green part of this theme. How you ask could I make scotch eggs green? For that matter, what are Scotch Eggs?
Brief answer is boiled eggs wrapped and baked in breakfast sausage. Who ever thought of such a delight?!? The crazy Scotts, of course!
Recipe time!
10-12 boiled and deshelled eggs
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 egg lightly beaten
1 pound breakfast sausage
1/3 c. bread crumbs
1 tsp. flour
good shake of Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
Instructions: Mix all the ingredients together, minus the boiled eggs, duh. I found having gloves on really helpful for the next part. Take a small handful of sausage mix(about 1/4 c or so, you will have to test what works for you) and begin to flatten in out in your hand then place boiled egg in the center of palm and begin to bring the edges together to wrap it all the way around the egg.
Bake them at 350 degrees for 3-=45 minutes. You don’t want them crispy, just cooked through.

Now you are asking yourself, right about now, “Where does the GREEN aspect of this idea come in?” Well, my idea was pretty simple…dye the eggs green before wrapping with sausage. Yup! It was totally weird, but awesome!!! I boiled the eggs the night before and had them all soaking in green food dye overnight in the fridge. They were really dark green!!!
This is how they turned out:

  1. Oh, how I love a Scotch egg. Imagine my surprise and dismay when I made it to Scotland and realized that they’re not actually a native food…~sigh~

    There are some pretty awesome Curried Scotch Eggs in the greater London area.
