Scotch Eggs (Japanese-inspired Recipe) | Cooking with Dog


Hi, I’m Francis, the host of this show “Cooking with Dog.” First, let’s make the half boiled eggs. Reduce the heat to low and carefully place 2 eggs into a pot of boiling water. During the first 2 minutes, gently rotate the eggs to help the yolks to stay in the center. Boil the eggs for a total of five and a half minutes. Now, place the eggs into a bowl of ice water. Remove the shells in the water. The eggs are soft and delicate so be careful not to break them. Look at that! The soft-boiled eggs have a jello-like texture! And now, let’s make the scotch eggs. Add the bread crumbs to the beaten egg and stir to moisten. For the batter, combine another beaten egg and the flour in a bowl. Stir to mix. Add a small amount of water until the batter has the desired consistency like shown. Now, place the mixture of ground beef and pork in a bowl and sprinkle on the salt and the coarsely ground black pepper. Add the Japanese Worcester sauce or regular Worcester sauce and the tomato ketchup. Combine all the ingredients with your hand. Make sure to thoroughly mix the meat until it becomes kind of gooey. Then, add the egg-moistened bread crumbs and the chopped cabbage leaves. Combine the ingredients again. Now, take half of the meat in your hand. And toss it from one hand to the other to remove the air inside. Then, flatten the meat. Dust the boiled egg with flour and wrap the egg with the meat. Make the thickness of the meat even and shape the scotch egg into a ball. Now, coat the meat with the batter. Then, coat it with the bread crumbs. Repeat the procedure and you’ll have 2 large scotch eggs. And now, let’s deep-fry the scotch eggs. Heat the oil to 170°C (338°F) in a pot. Adjust the shape and place each scotch egg into the oil. Don’t touch them until the batter firms up otherwise the outer layer will break apart. Then, with kitchen chopsticks, gently rotate the pieces to brown evenly. Deep-fry for about 5 and a half minutes until golden brown. Now, they are ready. Remove and drain the excess oil. Then, place the scotch egg onto a plate along with the salad. Enjoy the dish with mustard or you can add your favorite sauce to taste. Scotch eggs are an English dish and authentic recipes use a hard boiled egg and sausage meat. This version is inspired by a Japanese dish called Menchikatsu, a breaded and deep-fried ground meat. In this recipe, the meat is well seasoned so you should be able to enjoy it with only mustard. Good luck in the kitchen!

  1. Ahh when she cut open the scotch egg it looked so yummy and satisfying (aesthetic wise) with all that yolk! I am so gonna make this one day. 🙂

  2. That looked so good! And the runny golden egg yolk was beautiful! I am learning so much from your wonderful cooking channel. Dog is adorable and so well mannered!

  3. I keep forgetting to thank you; I made this the other day and it was delicious!  Your video gave very clear instructions, and it came out great.  My boyfriend loved it too.  Very happy 🙂  I am  huge fan of your videos.  They are creative, entertaining, and best of all, a great way to learn something new.  This was the first of your dishes I tried, since I had all the ingredients on hand, but I am very exited to try my hand at a Japanese dish.  Next up, Hiroshima Okonomiyaki!

  4. Looks tasty. It has striking resemblance with a Mughlai Dish called Nargisi Kofta which my grand-mom used to cook using goat mince.Thanks for the recipe.

  5. Hi i was wondering if the scotch eggs can be baked instead of being deep fried? If so, will the egg yolk be runny when it's cut open?

  6. Good day. I can't find worcester sauce here but we have Worcestershire sauce. Are they the same? Thank you for the delicious recipe!

  7. how can she cook with a dog beside her? It is very dangerous. Poor dog. Boiling oil and a pet, it scared me.

  8. 昨日の夜ご飯に作りました!すごい美味しかったです!☺️旦那はメンチカツがあまり好きではなく、でも、これは美味しい美味しいと食べてくれました(o´罒`o)♡またリピートします👍🏻

  9. Was not to sure when I saw this in the list of scotch eggs, but after watching would really like to give this version a try.

  10. Made these today. They were just like what you described: egg wrapped seasoned ground meat. There was nothing about them that is exciting, just plain meat and egg 😐

  11. This is the BEST recipe for scotch eggs I've come across. I added green onions along with the cabbage to this recipe and served them with an avocado crema – OUTSTANDING!

  12. Love your videos. It's funny your voice reminds me of the narrator of an old nature documentary I used to watch as a kid.

  13. eu assistia muito esse programa por que eu adoro cultura japonesa eu queria que ela fise -se um bolo de morango

  14. my son asked me to make scotch egg, and found this video. i tried this, and it was yummy. my son was so happy .thank you.

  15. You can tell it's a Scottish recipie because it involves deep frying something. All Scottish cooking involves deep frying something.

  16. Scotch eggs sounds great! I did a video where I made egg and ricotta ravioli on my YouTube cooking channel. Check it out if you have a chance!

    Keep up the good work.

  17. this is the first and best scotch egg i've made last night. only difference is i used quail eggs because they are running out of date and i replaced the cabbage with red onion. it was challenging converting the cooking time for the quail eggs and controlling the temp for the deep frying, but thank God everything turns out perfect! if only i could post the photos. thank you for the tutorial!! 🙂

  18. Can I ask something? So you cook the eggs for 2 minutes (while stirring it gently) + 3,5 minutes = 5, 5 minutes in total?

  19. Could this be baked as well? If so, What would the oven temperature be and how long would it cook for? Love all your videos~ keep up the great work! 🙂

  20. I know this video is old but fun tasty tip: use maple sausage for a more breakfast like taste. It was a big hit with my family.

  21. OMG!! I watched an anime series about food and this looks exactly like the food I saw!

    The yolk is supposed to be more liquid in order for it to ooze~ satisfying~
    It's like the sun ^^

  22. I remember seeing this on a Japanese drama series called 'Gouchisousan' and I have been CRAVING these for a LONG TIME

  23. Offs…. I was learning about Vietnamese dish Gà bó xôi, I wanted to compare it to a scotch egg…found this…such a wrong title considering
    1 we eat dog in Vietnam.
    2 a dog egg = a dog pop.
