I don’t know why Disney/Pixar has a hard time with Dinosaur movies. They can make them look beautiful, but they can’t get a solid story. Oh well. There wasn’t really any food in Dinosaur either, except for some prehistoric dinosaur meat, but that didn’t stop us, oh no. We made some great Dinosaur inspired scotch eggs and scotch eggs from Cadbury Eggs! Perfect for the upcoming Easter holiday! Check it out! Also, we made some video content! That will be up later today. Yay! So check out the videos on how to make each egg!
*EDIT: Videos are up!*
Dinosaur Scotch Egg
So, when Aladar is still a little eggling, he gets thrown around a bit and even swallowed and spit out again.
That’s the closest to food we could come by. I’ve always wanted to make Scotch Eggs, this gave me the opportunity. They turned out great!
- 1 egg
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup yellow mustard
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 6 eggs
- 2 quarts oil for deep frying
- 12 ounces ground pork sausage
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley, crushed
- 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 egg, beaten
- 4 ounces dry bread crumbs
- In a small saucepan, crack 1 egg
- Turn the heat on low
- Mix in mayonnaise, mustard and sugar.
- Heat until boiling. When it reaches a boil, remove and let sit until cool
- Then chill in fridge.
- Place 6 eggs in a saucepan and cover with water.
- Bring to a boil
- Boil eggs for 10 to 12 minutes.
- Remove from heat
- Let cool then peel.
- Heat oil in deep-fryer or a deep pan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Work the parsley, lemon rind, nutmeg, marjoram, salt and pepper into the sausage with your hands.
- Divide the sausage into 6 equal sized balls
- Smash the balls into disks and place a peeled hardboiled egg in the center of each disk.
- Work the sausage around the eggs with wet hands to form an even layer.
- Roll the covered eggs in beaten egg, and then in dried breadcrumbs.
- With a spoon, carefully slide the eggs in the hot oil and fry for 4 to 5 minutes (sometimes it helps to only do a couple at a time), until they turn deep golden brown.
- Turn them as they cook so that they brown evenly.
- Remove with a slotted spoon, drain on paper towel
- If the sausage doesn't cook all the way through, heat in oven at 350 for 10 minutes.
- Serve eggs with mustard sauce.
Sweet Cadbury Scotch Egg
So, we wanted to do something extra for cute little Aladar.
So here’s a Disney Meal Original creation! Cadbury Scotch Eggs (They’ve probably been done before, but we came up with our own way of doing them). Now, since this was experimental, we kinda messed up on the first couple, but the last couple were DELICIOUS and oh so fattening! Check it out
- 6 Cadbury Creme Eggs (Frozen)
- 1 cake box mix
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup cream cheese
- 2 cups (6oz) Chocolate cookie crumbs
- 2 cups (6oz) bread crumbs
- 2 cups flour
- 2 eggs
- 8 oz (2 small packages) White baking chocolate
- 4 oz (1 small package) milk baking chocolate or chocolate chips
- Freeze the Cadbury Eggs overnight. They need to be good and solid
- Cook the cake mix as directed
- When the cake is cooled enough to handle, add to a mixing bowl
- Mix in cream cheese and sour cream until you get a wetter mix
- Place the cookie crumbs in one bowl, 1 cup flour in a bowl and crack one egg in the other
- Smash the cake around the frozen cadbury egg. Make sure the cake isn't too hot or else it will melt the egg, but if it's too cold, it will have a hard time sticking around the egg
- Roll the cake egg in the flour, then the egg then the cookie crumb.
- Place on a plate and freeze for at least an hour.
- Meanwhile, heat oil in a pan or deep-fryer to 350F
- Remove eggs from freezer
- Place bread crumbs in a bowl, the remaining flour in another, and crack the last egg into another bowl
- Repeat the process of rolling the eggs in the flour, then egg, then bread crumbs.
- Carefully place the eggs in the hot oil. Fry until it is golden.
- Remove from oil and place on a paper towel to drain.
- When the eggs are cool, melt the chocolate (white chocolate in one bowl, milk chocolate in another). You may use the instruction on the back of the box to melt the chocolate.
- Swirl a little milk chocolate in the white chocolate and then roll each egg in the white chocolate. Drizzle the milk chocolate on top.
- Let eggs chill in fridge until the chocolate has solidified.
- Enjoy your eggs
Both the scotch eggs were super delicious. My wife didn’t like the sausage we used for the regular scotch eggs, so make sure you get some premium sausage!
