Note: The recipe below is from the cookbook's lunch section. I chose Rainicorn Eggs because 1. Easter is on Sunday and you can use your peeled, hardboiled Easter eggs in the recipe and 2. because kimchi is one of the ingredients and you can homemake your own kimchi from Monday's post! (Store-bought is fine too though.) Eric notes that while it is unknown if Rainicorns lay eggs, eggs and kimchi are fitting ingredients to symbolize Jake and Lady's babies (kimchi is Korean and Jake likes eggs). The recipe is a variation on Scotch eggs which you might remember from last year's post on The Official Narnia Cookbook. Also to note, the directions below are in my own words to include my input & experiences.
Rainicorn Eggs (Recipe by Eric Resnick)
1 1/2 lbs. Ground Chicken (ground turkey works too)
2/3 Cup Spicy Cabbage Kimchi (I ended up using about double this amount)
(Make your own kimchi! Or find in the Asian section of your grocery store or from an Asian market.)
6 Hardboiled Eggs, peeled (I used 10!)
(Click here for hardboiled egg tips, like using baking soda in the water.)
1/2 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1 Raw Egg, beaten (I used 2)
2 Cups Panko Bread Crumbs (more as needed)
Food Processor (optional)
2. Pick up a hardboiled egg, roll it in flour, & then wrap it with meat to about a 1/4" thickness. Next, dip it in the beaten egg until all sides are covered & then roll it around in the panko crumbs. Lastly, place it on the baking sheet & then start on the next egg. Continue until your meat mixture is used up. Place the tray in the oven & bake for 35-40 mins (a little longer if you have over 6 eggs) or until slightly golden & the meat is no longer pink. Remove from oven & serve warm. Excellent with your fave dipping sauce (mine's a sweet German curry catsup).
Suggestion: Deep frying these bad boys lessens the cook time considerably. If you have a little Fry Daddy, use it. Cook the wrapped eggs for about 3 mins until they're a nice golden brown. Or you can heat about 1/2" oil in a pan & cook for about 2 mins per side, checking to make sure the meat is cooked through.
