Cooked popcorn in a bowl sitting face up

Operation Popcorn Finale

For our final recipe of the popcorn challenge, we are using the salt & vinegar popcorn again and this time using it in a recipe for Scotch Eggs.  For those of you thinking that making scotch eggs means you’re having a glass of scotch while cooking eggs, it is not really that so much as it consists of a hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat, coated in bread crumbs and baked or deep-fried. Just as with our previous recipe, we decided not to deep fry the scotch eggs, as I don’t own a deep fryer.  So instead we pan fried them and finished them off in the oven.
  • 8 hard boiled eggs, peeled
  • 1 package of Jimmy Dean pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup salt & vinegar popcorn
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
Cut the roll of pork sausage into 8 equal pieces.  Place the egg on the piece of sausage and mold the sausage around the egg.  Once the egg is encased in the sausage, roll the sausage in the pulsed popcorn/panko mixture.  Place in a hot skillet coated in olive oil and brown on all sides.  Place the skillet in the oven for 10 minutes to finish cooking.  Enjoy!  p.s. these definitely were a hit.
