If you’ve never had a scotch egg before you are missing out on a treat! Picture this if you will; a boiled egg wrapped inside of sausage meat with a bread crumb/flour coating and then deep fried. Oh the bliss…and especially good with some spicy mustard to dip it in. A local pub here serves them and we do enjoy one or two (trust me, the things are filling) with a pint. They really are good eats.
Now if you are an adventurous type then here is a recipe to make your own scotch eggs from a wonderful food blogger named Christina. Christina’s Cucina has a wealth of yummy recipes including many British ones. Here is what I usually have pint wise when having a Scotch egg – a hard cider. This bottle came from Devon and if I recall some of the apples that were used to make it came from the orchard that DH’s uncle used to own. We brought the bottle back from Devon with us on the train to our hotel in London and as you can see here, it was part of my “nightcap” before retiring for the evening…but no scotch eggs to go with it.
It’s Fat Tuesday and Happy Hour somewhere right now 🙂
