My version of scotch eggs is the result of my food processor not blending almonds for almond milk properly. Because I couldn’t bring myself to throw the almond chaff away, I had to do something. The first thing that came into my mind were to make sweet almond bites. Next, I remembered that scotch eggs needed bread crumbs for coating. So I thought why not try using almond ‘crumbs’ instead. I’m glad I did.
My failed almond was quickly transformed into almond meal which is generally a coarser grind made from almonds that have their skin on. The ready-made almond meal can be bought from your local supermarket but you can follow the procedure below to make yours at home. Once I was done making this almond meal, it immediately dawned on me that any nut could be used for this recipe if the same procedure is used.
Can I just say sometimes a mishap is the best thing that can happen in the kitchen or even in life. Some of the best ideas come as a result of failure. So next time, you fail at something in this life, don’t give up, don’t be downcast. Find ways to make things right. Seek solutions and you will be surprised at what can come out of a bad situation.
Now back to the intention of this post. This is a must try recipe. In fact, the taste will confuse your brain for a moment, but as you munch on, you’ll quickly appreciate the savoriness of this almondy hot scotch eggs.
Try it out this easter and thank me later.
Happy and healthy cooking xoxo.
