lazy cooks scotch eggs

Why scotch eggs?Are they scottish?God alone knows......and probably Wikipedia...what I know is that I' ve grown up eating them...and now my kids are growing up eating them!These can be made with a mincemeat covering(infact then they would be genuine scotch eggs),I however mostly do these with a covering of nice and flavourful mashed potato

1. 5 hard boiled eggs..shelled.
2. 5 boiled potatoes
3. 1 medium sized onion finely chopped
4. 1 green chilli finely chopped
5. 2 tablespoons of finely chopped cilantro
6. 3 cloves of garlic finely chopped
7. 1/2 inch pc of ginger finely chopped
8.2 slices of bread soaked in water and squeezed dry
10. 1 egg
11.salt and pepper to taste

1.Mash the boiled potato,add everything to it(onion,green chilli,ginger,garlic,cilantro,bread,salt and pepper)....mash away.
2.Now divide the mix into 5.Cover a boiled egg with this cover the rest of them

3.Beat the  egg well in a bowl..then take these mammoth covered eggs,roll in beaten egg....then roll in crushed(powdered )cornflakes(I prefer the taste of can def. use breadcrumbs..whatever rocks your boat)..then deep fry in hot oil,drain on absorbent paper and serve with coleslaw and sausages!
