Merguez-Wrapped Duck Eggs #BakingBloggers

 

This month, Sue of Palatable Pastime told the Baking Bloggers that for December: "Let's bake up some party appetizers that are perfect for any December holiday." Here's the #BakingBloggers holiday appetizers party.


Merguez-Wrapped Duck Eggs 

I thought about my favorite breaded appetizer: a Scotch egg. And I had just picked up a dozen duck eggs from Lake Family Forest Farms at our Sunday farmers' market where I was also picking up some meats from Pig Wizard. That sounded like a serendipitous match!

We actually filmed this appetizer for our new #CulinaryCam YouTube channel. As soon as the video is live, I'll link it here.

Ingredients serves 6
  • 1 pound ground sausage with no casing (I bought this Merguez lamb sausage locally at PigWizard), divided into roughly 2-1/2 ounce portions
  • 6 large boiled eggs, peeled (I used Peking duck eggs from Lake Family Forest Farms)
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • Also need for serving: assorted pickles on the side, microgreens for garnish

 
Procedure

Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Place beaten egg in one bowl and bread crumbs in another bowl.


Flatten sausage into a thin patty and place the egg in the center. Gently wrap the egg with the sausage, pressing gently until it's completely covered and sealed around the egg.


Roll the sausage in the egg wash. Then roll in bread crumbs until completely covered.


Place finished eggs on the prepared baking sheet and place in the oven. 


Bake for 22 to 24 minutes until sausage is fully cooked through.


Serve warm. I served these with an assortment of pickles including carrots, beans, beets, onions, and peppers. I haven't posted all of the pickle recipes yet, but this course included my Dukkah-Spiced Quick Pickled Carrots.

That's a wrap for the #BakingBloggers' October event. We'll be back next month with a focus on recipes that use jelly and jam in them. Stay tuned...

  4. I adore baked Scotch Eggs - a lamb / duck version makes me think this would be ideal for Easter! It sounds delicious!

  5. Love the lamb coating. I use duck eggs for baking but have never had them hard boiled. I know they are much richer than chicken eggs so I have never used them in any other application.

  6. That must be a delicious and scrumptious appetizer!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
