  2. If you eat them fast enough they don't count. I really have to make myself some of those some day.

  3. I want to try a Scotch Egg SO bad... have no idea how to make one and believe me... here in SE Ohio they are unheard of... so... maybe I better plan a trip to the UK ;-)

    1. Hard boil eggs. Peel the shell off.

      Sausage meat (you could flatten out a sausage patty uncooked). Wrap meat around egg. Dip in beaten egg or milk. Roll in breadcrumbs/flour.

      Deep fry. OK, you can fry them in a wok in around 3 inches hot oil. Or bake them if doing the healthy option.

      Season the raw sausage meat to your taste, pepper, etc.

      Eat hot or cold.

  5. Can you imagine someone snarfing down steamed broccoli in a parking lot? It's always the illicit food that tastes the best.

    1. What part of the US are you in?
      I am sure you can find a scotch egg on line?

    2. I sure hope to find them when I move to Savannah, Georgia in 2 weeks - it has quite a few British shops.

  8. A friend and I used to go to the WW meetings and weigh ins in a small town about 18 miles to our East. If we got a good report we'd stop for Chinese on the way back home.....:) Good job you!

  9. I've never had a Scotch egg. I don't dare to try one because I become addicted so easily. Just one toke and before you know it I was on heroin. Scotch eggs must be a gateway food to something that will pack on even more pounds.

    Love,
    Janie

  12. As far as I can tell the delights of the the scotch egg are not understood on the North American continent. I've more than once been asked what they are with something like awe and disbelief.

    2. There is an Italian meatloaf involving hard boiled eggs in the middle. Not so much Scotch. It's all a matter of geography.
      I love that scotch eggs make you sweary, John! ;-)

  13. Sometimes you just have to "treat" yourself.

  14. Congratulations on the loss!

    I'm my department's supplier of Scotch Eggs. I make them for the Christmas potluck and our head of dept. always eats at least 3 halves. He calls me his fixer.

    2. Anytime you make it to Edmonton, I'll make you a batch.

      I even left my recipe a couple of posts up. I'm not a god, just a good Scottish raised housewife in my non-nursing life.

  15. I had my first scotch egg in 2010 at an Easter Party in Los Angeles. Oh My God they were amazing!!!! There was a platter full of them and it took everything I had not to plow through one or two dozen of them.

  18. John,
    You are just totally awesome dude!!!!! Congratulations of losing 20 pounds, enjoy those scotch eggs. Rest assured you earned them with all your hard work.

  19. You should get a bravery medal just for actually going to Rhyl. I like Rhyl so much, I headed on to Prestatyn.

    Well done on losing that weight. Scotch eggs! No thank you very much!

  20. There is no justice. If I gave myself two treats any weight I lost would return faster than a speeding bullet.
    And I am with gary - congratulations on losing all that weight, and you will get NO competition for scotch eggs from me.

  21. I live in the U.S. and I know what Scotch Egg are but I will have to learn to make them if I want on. le sigh

  23. You are correct. Fucking IS lovely - if my memory serves me right!

  24. Twenty pounds is amazing. Very well done !!!!
    A friend who did WW very seriously and lost a lot of weight a few years ago said she got to the point where no matter how little she ate she couldn't seem to lose any more. Her class organiser advised her to have a binge weekend of fried breakfasts and anything else she fancied. Scotch eggs were high on the list. It worked, kick-started the weight loss again and she lost another stone.
    So your scotch eggs could have done your diet a lot of good !!

  25. Well done on the weight loss, and as for the Scotch Eggs .... well sometimes you just HAVE to don't you :-)

  26. I met a neighbour at the butchers yesterday buying the most enormous steak. He said he'd been on a soup / no carbs diet for a week & tonight was allowed chicken or steak !
    Weird kind of diet but I could see he had lost weight !
    Well done John x

  27. Well done you on the weight loss, and pleased that you all came through the wind/not much wind unscathed. Not had a scotch egg for years; always found them a bit dry.

    ReplyDelete
  28. 20lbs!!! you put to me shame. Well done, you men always seem to stay focused and keep motivated, I wish I could.

  29. way to go with the weight loss. one must treat oneself occasionally! i am just about to make scotch eggs!

  30. It is a fact that if you eat fast, you ingest less calories. At least, that is what I tell myself.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Cor, as fast as you are losing it, I am putting it on. Clearly I need to add Scotch Eggs to my diet!

  32. I can't wait to try a Scotch egg - have so far found 2 Scottish Pubs listed in Savannah, GA. I'll be there in 2 weeks and a couple of days, and I plan to have my daughter and SIL take me to at least one of them! Come St. Patty's Day, Savannah goes green in a big way. Green beer, green water in the fountain a couple of blocks from where I'll live, and they even pour green coloring into the river!

    Nancy, still in Iowa

  33. I was so focussed on moving to Savannah and its British atmosphere that I forgot to congratulate you on your weight loss! Well done, John!

  34. Congratulations on the weight loss, John -- and for having the good sense to indulge yourself! Well done, on both counts!

  35. My professional society has planned its next semi-annual meeting for Manchester in 2015. If I attend, I've got to get some Scotch eggs while I'm there.

    ReplyDelete
  36. That is a very good effort, I hope it wasn't too painful to lose the weight?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Congratulations on the weight loss. After my W.W. meetings 25 years ago in Ireland, I always stopped by a Belgium chocolate store and bought one exquisite piece. Your Scotch eggs to my dark chocolate--which would win?

  38. Bet those were the best damn Scottish eggs you've had in a long time! Victory is sweet; good work John.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have it on good authority that eating from someone else's plate is calorie free. So get Chris a shed full of scotch eggs and scoff the lot off his plate.
    Well done on your weight loss.

  40. Congratulations on your weight loss! And i don't blame you for treating yourself.
