Scotch Egg Casserole

I made it for the first time at the weekend and the whole family is thrilled with it. The eggs alone are very filling - not like scotch eggs from supermarkets which are so small.

Method

1. Shell eggs and cover with sausage meat.

2. Coat with beaten egg and breadcrumbs.

3. Fry in hot oil for 10 minutes. Drain well.

4. Place eggs in a deep casserole with the carrots, onions, tomatoes and herbs.

5. Mix gravy granules and cornflour to a smooth cream with a little of the water. Blend in remaining water and then pour liquid over eggs and vegetables.

6. Cover and cook in the centre of the oven at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C), Gas Mark 4 for 1 hour.

Serves 4-6.

Accompaniment

Baron de Ley Club Privado Reserva Rioja

The Baron de Ley winery was founded by a prestigious group of Rioja professionals in 1985. They were quite unique in their approach as they modelled the winery on a Medoc chateaux, which was a pioneering move at that time for producers in the Denominacion de Origen Calificada Rioja. This wine is aged in new oak casks for 20 months prior to resting in the bottle for 2 years before release. It has definite claret qualities; the nose is layered with ripe cherry, toasty oak and a touch of cigar box. Lively, ripe, red fruit with dried tobacco and nutty vanilla overtones, round tannins with an expressive woody finish. Rioja wine can be excellent value for money and has terrific cellaring potential. Buy this wine if you like: Well rounded reds, with soft fruit and toasty character, easy drinking for upfront pleasure.
