    I have never tried them but the name and the pictures I've seen look and seem delicious to me. Worth it? If so can anyone recommend a good recipe.

    They seem to be a load of work for a limited reward. They probably don't suck, but, I would rather eat them if someone else bothered with the preparation.

    I love a good Scotch Egg.

    And it’s definitely better to have someone else make them. I tried once and it was a PITA.

    Getting the meat cooked through without the whole mess getting rubbery is tricky.

    I've had them at the PA Renn Faire. They are good. But imho , just that, good. Not special. So I made my own . Still just good, not special. More of a novelty. Something to carry in your sporran with your oatmeal. After a night on the moor with the sheep, it may be really tasty.

    What were you doing...out all night on the moor with a drunken gaggle of sheepy trollops?


    I'll just have a good old Southern breakfast.




    But, with a side of haggis. :)

    Oh stop, you.

    It's a hard boiled egg wrapped in sausage and then fried. It must be cooked to at least firm so it all holes together. For travel. Ideally . This will.lead to the treat being chewy, rubbery, etc.

    But if your not gonna wrap it and run. Accros the hills. You can cook em a lil underdone.

    Looks like an easy enough recipe. Which is better, hard yolk, soft yolk or runny?

    A good Scotch egg is one of the greatest foods in the world!

    There are several restaurants and pubs in London who can do you a brilliant Scotch egg.

    Key ingredients:

    A soft boiled egg with a runny yolk. Cook the egg and peel off the shell. I’ve had anything from quails eggs to hens to ducks.

    Minced meat, usually pork or mixed pork and black pudding, sometimes ox tail, very well seasoned. Wrap the egg in a layer of about 1/2 inch all over.

    Double coat the whole thing with egg/flour/breadcrumbs and deep fry until golden brown.

    Serve with your favourite brown/red sauce or chutney. When you cut it open the meat should be well cooked, and the yolk flow out.

    Yum!
