Crispy coating

Whether you're making scotch eggs, schnizel or whatever there is a basic way to do the coating.

Coat your meat/ vegetable in flour and shake off all the excess flour.
Unless you will cook straight away, don't follow the process until you are about to cook your food.
Coat your mixture in beaten egg, and then roll in breadcrumbs.
Fry or bake. If you fry, make sure the oil is really got before you use it, because you don't want your food to be soggy and to have absorbed a lot of oil.
For those of you with a lot of time/ patience/ enthusiasm (delete as appropriate) complete all the stages again, except the rolling in flour.

Season your breadcrumbs accordingly;
Chicken- thyme, lemon zest
Prawns, dried chilli, dried garlic
Cauliflower- curry powder (it works really well!)

Try to use dry ingredients when seasoning as it works better.
