  12. Question for the expert...is the yolk slightly runny in a good scotch egg? Recently went with Florida friends to a British restaurant in Florida. I made them order a Scotch egg since I am British and they had never had one. They yolk was runny. The owner said it was supposed to be. If he was a Flordian I would not believe him but he was a Brit. I have only ever had them as hard boiled. Clarification please.

      that is the url to a photo of one cut in half. the yolk is set not runny but not solid and hard looking .

    2. If you make them at home, or have them fresh in a restaurant, it can be either way, depends on what the maker wants to do (or what skill they have). If you buy from a shop then typically they will be hard boiled.

    3. I like both but in the flower show our judge demanded a set egg

  13. Seeing those scotch eggs together I am wondering what the collective noun is for a group of them? Perhaps a testicularity of scotch eggs. Any other suggestions?

    1. A scrotum of scotch eggs

  14. Yes please !
    They are now rolling stuffed eggs in bread crumbs and deep frying them. Sounds like a second good thing to eat.
    @ Yorkshire Pudding, how about a paddle of scotched eggs ?

    cheers, parsnip

  16. Scotch eggs. What can I say? Sumptuous, flavourful with a crisp outer texture but a silky soft egg inside. The last on that I ate was at the railway station at Manchester Airport, August last year. My son was with me, it was the perfect M&N egg at the perfect time. He has been inspired to cook his own but, a scotch egg is a scotch egg...

  17. I might have to discard my idea about going back to Paris or Buenos Aires and go have Scotch eggs in Wales. then I will go to Paris.

  18. What I don't understand is how you get a round Scotch egg when the egg itself is oval - is the sausage thicker in some places than others or do European hens lay round eggs?!

    It does look good but probably shockingly high in calories :)

  19. I note that Wales has adopted the Dollar. Is this permanent, or simply for the sale of Scotlandshireshore Eggs?

  20. We buy rounds of Scotch eggs at work from a butcher's shop in Totnes. Sometimes they are warm. Bliss! x

  21. I make mine oven baked and eat them with Beetroot relish , insanely good.

  22. There was a UK cookery programme a couple of years ago where the chef baked Scotch eggs in the oven and also suggested various spicy/savoury additions to the sausage meat. I've tried oven baking them, and they are good - less grease and a crispier outside.

  24. Never had a Scotch Egg, nor am likely to - UNLESS they start making them with quorn or some other veggie alternative. Am keen to share in the 'magic' of this ambrosial dish. Maybe the bigwigs at Linda McCartney will give it a try.

    1. Ray they do make them but they are sold as picnic eggs. You can wrap falafel mix around an egg as well! yummy

    2. Falafel? Is that a word one has to keep saying to exercise the vocals?
      If it's a recipe you're suggesting it's already too complicated for me. But thanks anyway.

  25. An entire meal in itself - high in calories and with absolutely no fruit and veg - oh dear John.

    1. He is a health professional Mrs Weaver so something of an expert in dietary matters. All this nonsense about fruit and veg. What our bodies crave is beef dripping on toast, scotch eggs and pork crackling.

  26. lol Yorkshire Pudding ..I haven't eaten red meat in over 40 years.
    I have the heart of a young person ..my mind is gone but my body is in pretty good shape .. but I would be tempted at least once by a Scotch Egg.

  27. Yum! I love a Scotch Egg! The pub around the corner from me makes a very nice scotch egg. You can get one with the ploughman's lunch or on its own. I like to dip mine in honey mustard. Delish!

  28. I crave Cumberland sausage fortnightly.

  29. I love Scotch Eggs, and make mine with a couple of veggie sausages flattened out ..... and I have a salad with it too ..... that should keep 'Weaver of Grass' happy as that does indeed make it a balanced meal.

  30. How are they cooked? Deep fried, pan fried, baked? I'm sure I would like them. Someday........
