Egg Morcon

Labels: , ,

Hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage then deep-fried is a dish called Scotch Eggs. I found a similar recipe, Egg Morcon, in my Filipino Seventh-day Adventist vegetarian cookbook. The boiled eggs are wrapped in embutido made with textured vegetable protein (dried tofu bits).. Reversing the recipe from vegetarian to a meaty dish, I seasoned ground beef with a little powdered garlic and onion, soy sauce, and sea salt, and added a little milk, soft bread crumbs, and an egg for binder. I rolled the morcon in panko before deep-frying until golden brown and crispy. I love them with steamed rice, banana ketchup, and cherry tomatoes.
