On http://funke-koleosho.blogspot.co.uk/ Funke Koleosho once again provides a full recipe for the preparation
What you need
6 hard boiled hen eggs
300g good quality sausage meat (This could be pork, beef or turkey depending on your preference. You need about 50g per egg).
About 100g breadcrumbs
Some plain flour
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
Half teaspoon dried thyme
What to do
To boil the eggs, place them in a deep base pot and cover with water. Place the pot on the stove on medium to high heat and start your timer. Boil eggs for no more than 6 minutes.
Once boiled take the eggs out and place in a bowl of cold water. Carefully remove the shell and set aside.
Place the crumbs and flour in different flat plates in readiness for coating the eggs. Also crack and whisk one fresh egg to use as egg wash.
In another bowl mix the oil and thyme into the sausage meat. Mix well for even distribution of spice. Then part into 50g portions and flatten on cling film or food grade plastic food bag.
Take one egg at a time and roll first in the flour. Then place egg in the centre of the flattened sausage meat. Carefully enclose the egg with the sausage meat ensuring the egg is completely covered. Place back in the flour, then egg wash and then roll in the breadcrumbs then back into the egg wash and roll again in the breadcrumbs until its completely covered.
Allow to rest for about 15 minutes then bake in the oven at 220oC for 20-30 minutes or until well browned.
Serve hot or cold.
