Recently I was asked by a client to make Scotch egg. They have been trending in social food media for awhile, but I never had the chance to try them. My client was running a whiskey tasting and wanted some pub-grub. So I researched and tested various recipes, boiling, peeling, retesting till I hit money – which with Scotch eggs mean a runny center, crisp bread crumb, and moist sausage casing.
A Manchester-based Twitter mate then told me to try making them with pickled eggs and black pudding. Hmmm, I might. They're good eggs, Scotch eggs!
