    Or go and have a word with the Chef in The White Hart Brewpub Whitechapel and he will make you the best Black Pudding Scotch Eggs known to man;)
    Tip - don't deep fry them, whack them in the oven, they wont break up then.

    This is one thing I can honestly say my mum had never made us growing up.
    My parent's came to Canada from Scotland, I'm first-gen Canuck raised Scottish and fed the finest of fried foods,lol but Scotch Eggs? I've had them, but never home made from Mum.

    We might need to clarify brown sauce = HP Sauce. Although in this house it's "broon" hahaha

    My ultimate weakness? Black Pudding.

    I could eat that, breakfast lunch & dinner.

    :)

    Looks good to me. An hour prep time? I'm up for spending time in the kitchen, free flow of coffee or hot tea, while things sizzle or bake. I just had eight strips of bacon, two wedges of fried cornbread, and a couple fried eggs with a couple dashes Pappy's hot sauce, cooked in that order without adding additional oil, washed down with ample Yorkshire tea. Probably took me 45 minutes.

    Not got one to hand but, let’s consider this suggestion:

    Six large fresh freerang eggs, lightly hard boiled and shelled.
    12 oz lean freshly minced pork, not too lean (fair amount of good fat for enhanced flavor)
    Optional: roughly chopped cooked fresh or tinned chestnut.
    Small handful of Freshly chopped sage
    Very finely chopped firm white onion
    Freshly ground black peppercorns and salt to taste (it was not a great idea to swallow the mixture when you taste it to assess the seasoning)

    Coating:
    Flour to coat
    2 Mixed edd to coat
    Freshly made white breadcrumbs

    Roll the eggs in flour, dipp and roll in egg mix, roll in fresh breadcrumbs to evenly coat the six eggs. Set aside for a few mins in the refrigerator to firm up.

    Deep fat fry in hot vegetable oil until golden brown and crispy on the outside

    Serve with a light salad, good very cold glass of your favorite beer and enjoy.

    I’ve never tried this recipe with the chestnut, but the combination just gives the snack an extra culinary dimension.

    Scotch eggs are laid in early spring by haggis in the deep grass of the Scottish Highlands. Quite rare but very tasty if you can get them fresh fro a local butcher

    This guy has two, though somewhat reduced due to the cold conditions, possibly Pea Hens rather than Rhode Island Redso_O
    However it doesn't seem to have dampened his interest in handling them:thumb:

    Good God
    That sounds good...
    But then again
    It's food...
    With very, very, very few exceptions...
    I have no food prejudices
    Nor
    Phobias...
    @abnormaltoy brought up haggis...
    Gotta find me some...
    It is popular to hold your nose and EWwww at foods such as fruit cake, brains, liver and Haggis...
    But
    Remember Mr. E The red renaming Greenland
    Greenland, to lure and hoodwink unsuspecting
    Home buyers...
    Same ploy goes with...
    EWwww foods

    Hate to be precious, but the eggs have to be soft boiled! Those nasty picnic eggs in supermarkets are not what a real scotch egg should be - served hot with a runny yolk.

    If you like the egg yolks dribbling down your cheeks, soft runny eggs is fine. The reason I said “lightly hard boiled” is to ensure that the yolks are slightly runny and not hard. I have never eaten them hot, but whatever floats your boat is fine by me o_O

    I make them for football parties, typically served with a form of buffalo wing sauce on the side. I make mine in my airfryer and have yet to have issues making them. They are a little bit of work, but taste great and make a nice alternative to the usual wings at my parties.

    Best scotch egg recipe.
    1. Buy a bottle of your choice scotch.
    2. Pour 1 highball glass and consume contents
    3. Repeat step 2
    4. Repeat step 3
    5. Forget how to pronounce the word "egg"
