These are stupid good! Thanks for posting the video and recipe. I never tried to make scotch eggs before, but I followed the recipe except I used my air fryer and spritzed them with oil before and midway through cooking.

Unreal treat! nice work!!!!

Nothing like waiting a year for an answer, right? But here it is:

I air-fryed the first one for exactly 8 minutes, turning it once, at 375 degrees F.  This is slightly hotter and 1 minute longer than Joshua's recipe.  The other 7 I left in for another 2 minutes just for good measure and they were ALL very good.  I'd probably go 8 minutes at 390 degrees next time - but that's just a guess.

What oil did you use and how much of it?

I used corn oil when I followed this recipe. I think the bottle was around a Liter and got the job done well 🙂
