  • small amount of flour (100g)
  • 2 large British Lion eggs beaten with a fork
  • 100g dry breadcrumbs mixed with 40g grated Parmesan
  • oil for frying
  • Red pepper essence:
  • 220g jar of roasted peppers
  • 40g sugar
  • 40ml red wine vinegar
  • •60ml water
  • •Or some tomato ketchup


1.Pre heat a fryer to 180C.
2.Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the eggs for 6 minutes, cool in cold running water and then tap the shell gently to break it and carefully peel.
3.Once you have peeled your eggs, roll them first in the flour, coating them all over, then into the beaten egg mixture and then finely coat in the Parmesan breadcrumbs.
4.When ready to serve, fry the eggs until they are very golden, drain on kitchen paper, cut a little off the base of each so they stand upright and place on plates, using a spoon pull a blob of red pepper essence or tomato sauce to decorate and enjoy.
