Recipe by Mark Donald, Head Chef of Number One
For the Sausage mix:
400g Highland Wagyu beef mince
200g sausage meat
100g onion diced
2 Sprigs Thyme
1 clove Garlic minced
50g dijon mustard
Pinch bi-carbonate of soda
1 Tablespoon ground black pepper
1 egg beaten
For the crumb mix:
6 eggs beaten with 100ml milk
6 whole large eggs
Boil the eggs(6) for 5 minutes. Place into a large bowl of iced water to stop them cooking.
Peel the eggs carefully and place onto a tray lined with kitchen towel and put them in the fridge.
Meanwhile sweat the onion with the garlic and thyme. Allow to cool.
Thoroughly mix the remaining ingredients together with the onion mix.
Season the mix with salt.
Take a small amount of the mix and cook a piece for yourself checking the seasoning.
Adjust to your own personal taste.
Once you are happy with seasoning, refrigerate the mix and allow to rest.
Once rested, weigh the mix into 60g portions and roll into balls.
Press each ball into a patty shape and then place an egg in the centre of each.
Pull the meat up around the egg and pinch the meat at the top, totally encasing the egg with the meat.
Take a little time to make sure there are no holes or gaps and you have a good shape.
Take 3 Large bowls and fill them with flour, egg wash and panko breadcrumbs.
Place the eggs in the flour and roll around carefully to cover.
Now place the eggs in the bowl with the egg wash.
Finally place in the bowl with breadcrumbs.
Reshape if required.
Allow the eggs to set in the fridge for a few hours before cooking.
Fry the eggs in oil at 180 degrees celsius for 5 minutes and then place in a hot oven (170) for 1 minute. Let the eggs rest for 5 minutes before eating.

300g tomato juice
100g red wine vinegar
