  • 6 boil eggs
  • ¼ cup Luke warm water
  • ½ teaspoon yeast
  • 1/3 cup Whole milk
  • 1 ½ tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon granulated garlic
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper.
  • 2 oz. unsalted butter margarine
  • Oil for deep-frying


  • In a medium bowl add the warm water, and yeast. Set aside for 5 minutes. Then add milk, sugar, and salt
  • Using a stand mixer or by hand, mix the flour, garlic powder, white pepper and paprika
  • Then add butter, mix well until the ingredients have been fully incorporated.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough until it is smooth.
  • Place the dough on a well-floured surface. Roll out dough about 1 inch thick.
  • Using a large mouth, glass or bowl about 4 - 5 " cut out circles by gently pressing on the dough and releasing it, shaping the scotch egg dough. Continue cutting out dough until all dough has been cut- six pieces.
  • Gently wrap the dough around the egg as evenly as possible, pinch the bottom, making sure there are no cracks or opening.
  • Repeat the process. Set aside the egg roll.
  • Cover and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  • Heat up a medium skillet or cast iron with oil up to 2 inch- medium-high heat 350 degrees F. until hot but not smoking.
  • Gently drop the scotch egg with a spoon preferably and fry in batches, turning once, until golden brown, about 5-8 minutes. Do not overcrowd the pan (it will absorb excess oil, resulting in a soggy fish pies)
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove the Scotch egg and place them on paper towels.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature with this African Pepper Sauce.
