Scotch Eggs

Scotch Eggs

The Scotch egg is a classic UK snack that is eaten on its own, to serve them as part of a meal is quite sacrilegious to some (or maybe a lot) of people.  Many a Scotch egg is found on pub menus in the UK but you can make them at home by taking boiled eggs wrapping them in sausage meat, rolling in bread crumbs and frying them.

It turns out that Scotch eggs are not Scottish at all, they instead have a history that is open to some debate. One side is that they are the invention of Fortnum & Mason, a luxury London retailer. Another is that they are more closely related to a Cornish pastie. Yet another posits that they are a distant cousin of nagrisi kofta, a hard-boiled egg encased in a spicy meat and served with a gravy. Culture Trip has a great article, The Contentious History of the Scotch Egg, if you want to read more about the history of the Scotch egg you should definitely check it out.
