The twist is that it is made using turkey or chicken mince (usually made with pork mince) and I add lightly fried onion and leek. Great with salad or baked beans and chips.Take on picnics, a great snack. Enjoy

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Finely dice a small onion and finely chop the leek, lightly fry in the olive oil until soft. Leave to cool.
  2. Place one slice of white bread in food processor to make bread crumbs.
  3. In a bowl add the mince, herbs, salt,pepper and cooled onion and leek mixture, breadcrumbs and beaten egg and mix together very well. If you want to check for seasoning fry a small piece and taste.
  4. Shell eggs. Have prepared 3 separate plates, the beaten egg, breadcrumbs and one with some flour for your hands to keep them less sticky.
  5. Divide mixture into 6, take one portion and slightly flatten in your floured hand, place the egg in the middle and form the mixture around to make a nice round, continue until all six eggs are done.
  6. Dust in a little flour then put in beaten egg then breadcrumbs. When all are done place in the fridge for about 20 mins to firm up.
  7. Heat cooking oil to about 1800c and deep fry for about 5-8 mins until a beautiful golden brown.
