A picnic isn’t complete without a Scotch Egg, but if you’re looking for something with an edge on the classic recipe then why not try my recipe which combines good quality sausage meat with a pearl barley and Davidstow® 12 Month Mature cheddar centre.

How To Make Davidstow® 12 Month Mature cheddar Scotch “Egg:

Serves: 6


 Pearl Barley Centres:

 Bread Crumbs:


  1. Preheat a deep fat fryer to 160°c Pearl barley centres.
  2. Wash and cook the pearl barley in 1 ½ litres of water until soft and sticky. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Set aside 200g of this cooked pearl barley to use later. 
  3. Sweat the sliced leek with garlic and curry powder until tender. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. 
  4. Mix the, set aside, 200g pearl barley and the leeks into a bowl. 
  5. Add the Davidstow® 12 Month Mature cheddar, chives and dill. 
  6. Season to taste using salt and pepper. 
  7. Mix well and weigh out into 30g individual balls. Place these into the freezer to firm up well. 
  8. Mix the sausage meat with the thyme and seasoning.
  9. Assembly of the Scotch “Egg” Please note: Each ball requires approximately 60g sausage meat and 30g frozen barley balls 
  10. Wrap by spreading cling film out on your kitchen surface, then press the sausage meat out flat on top of the cling film, add the frozen barley ball into the centre of the meat and carefully wrap the sausage meat around the barley mix until coated evenly. 
  11. Now coat these balls in the flour, shaking off any excess. Dip these into the egg mixture, removing carefully with a fork shaking off any of the excess egg mixture. Now roll these in the panko breadcrumbs, ensuring they are coated well. 
  12. Fry these in the deep fat fryer for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown. Drain well onto kitchen paper and finish with a sprinkle of fine salt. Enjoy!
