    Cze's tales of bar food are making me hungry for Scotch Eggs.

    Anybody here ever had a Scotch Egg?

    Scotch eggs are very tasty. Not good for your cholesterol, though.

    *shudder* ugh- I hate eggs! just realizing that they are a giant cell is really disturbing to me!

    I'm having a chocolate macaroon, a pear and some mint tea for breakfast (late, late breakfast)

    ...Am I freak for thinking that looks tasty?

    I'm guessing they are hardboiled eggs surrounded by ground beef and then deep fried???

    Dear lord, how did they think of that...in Scotland?

    What is a Scotch egg exactly?

    I have this theory that certain regional/national cuisines were built around making the food as fattening and caloric as possible because there just wasn't enough of it or else the range of foods available was very limited.

    Oh Whatever, must you insult the nice man and his pictures of eggs? He's trying to extend a hand of cultural sharing.

    And do you also not like roe/caviar/fish eggs?

    The giant red fish eggs are SMELLY as hell and taste like seawater. 'Fish eggs in mayonaise' are pretty popular in Baltic countries or you know, Russia.

    And don't worry Oberon, I will partake of your 'Scotch Eggs'

    Right after breakfast...which reminds me I need fuel.

    I have to crank out 10 pages by 5:00pm! Whoops...

    I'm letting Oberon have ALL of the beloved eggs for himself!

    (and I HATE caviar! *shudder* it's like the bastardized minature child of eyeballs and fish oil!)

    I have a good friend who adores Scotch eggs though, so I know that they appeal to some!

    Oh, it's even better than that. The coating is spicy pork sausage.

    WANT!

    Google's got about a million of 'em.

    They're all variations on "Peel some hard-boiled eggs, pack 'em in pork sausage, coat the outside of the sausage layer with breadcrumbs, and deep-fry until the meat is cooked."

    Dijon mustard or various other sharp sauces (Worcestershire?) are typical accompaniments.

    I make Scotch eggs all the time, it couldn't be simpler. Same as Oberon's method above, but between packing them in sausage and coating them in crumbs, dunk them first in beaten egg, then roll them round in flour, dunk in beaten egg again, roll around in crumbs and THEN fry.

    I often put herbs in the breadcrumbs, thyme or chives or rosemary, fresh and chopped up really fine.

    oooh, chives... anything that would add a bit of onion to the flavor would be aces in my book. In fact, some scallions chopped fine would be really nice.
