  • Vortex Air Fryer


  • 7 large eggs 6 for the scotch eggs, 1 for beating
  • 700 g sausage meat
  • 1/2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp mixed herbs
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 65-70 g breadcrumbs


  • Hard or soft boil 6 eggs (depending on whether you’d like the scotch eggs a little runny or not)
  • In a mixing bowl, mix the sausage meat, soy sauce, mixed herbs and freshly ground pepper.
  • Prepare three deep plates: - 1 for the beaten egg, 1 for the flour and 1 for the breadcrumbs.
  • Weigh the sausage meat and divide the weight by 6 (approx. 115g) then split the meat into 6 portions, then peel all 6 eggs.
  • Place 1 of the 6 portions of the sausage meat onto a chopping board and flatten.
  • Dip one of the eggs into the flour then place it on the meat and carefully wrap the meat around the egg shaping into a ball. Dip the meat ball in the flour, then the beaten egg, and coat with the breadcrumbs and reserve on a plate whilst you repeat for each egg.
  • Once all eggs are ready, select the Air Fry function, and programme the temperature to 180℃ and the time for 10 minutes. Allow the Vortex to preheat before adding scotch eggs to the basket.
  • Turn the eggs carefully when prompted.
  • When the time ends, turn the scotch eggs again, select the Air Fry function once more and programme the temperature to 205℃ and the time for 4 minutes.
  • Allow to cook without turning again. Once finished, let them cool slightly before serving.
