The Egg Yolk slightly fell out

Scotch Eggs are delicious, if you have never tried one please do!  Generally a Scotch egg is a hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat, coated in bread crumbs and baked or sometimes deep-fried.  There are claims of the Scotch Egg being invented in the mid 1700’s and appeared in printed recipes around the early 1800’s.  The name is believed to come from ‘scotched’ meaning processed which refers to the meat wrapping around the egg and coated in breadcrumbs. 

In the UK they are readily available in supermarkets, convenience shops and fuel stations and are a common picnic food.  While in America you can probably find scotch eggs on British Style pub menus… with Ranch sauce, not very British!

There are tons of recipes out there from Paleo to Jamie Oliver (who prefers his yolks runny).

I’ve never tried any other than Melissa Joulwan from The Clothes Makes the Girl and author of my two favorite cookbooks: Well Fed and Well Fed:2

Mrs. Joulwan’s recipe obviously does not incorporate breadcrumbs but instead uses fried pork rinds which I also haven’t tried.  I’m a huge fan of it the way I’ve been eating it for the last 4-5 months; why change something you already love?
