Visual Howlaround Title Sequence: Now I want scotch eggs


You're not the only one.

Had my first one at the MN state fair last summer (deep fried & on a stick of course), it was delicious.

I've never had a Scotch egg.  I suspect I could eat them until I hate myself.

You'd be surprised. I'm not a competitive eater or anything but I can pack it away. Two scotch eggs is my limit. Those little things are shockingly filling.

One is almost always enough. Breaded pork wrapped around a soft boiled egg and fried? You can feel your arteries harden as you chew.

Less than 50, anyway.

If you ever find yourself in NYC, Meyers of Keswick in Greenwich Village makes very yummy scotch eggs with their store made Cumberland sausage. They can also hook you up with sausage rolls, pork pies, etc.

They will also ship to you.

I'm genuinely curious how you can make scotch eggs with a runny yolk center. If any pros would like to chime in I'm all ears.

In Oregon, it would qualify.  You can also  fulfill the requirement for three substantial meals with three kinds of sausage on buns.

/The Oregon Liquor Control Board has some many weird rules.

A long time ago, some friends and I went about making them from scratch. We tried a bunch of different coating types and end up making a dozen or so for just three of us. 4 per person was too much scotch egg.

They best coating was crushed corn flakes (breakfast cereal). The standard breadcrumbs was good. Beer batter not good.

There is a Deli called The Ham Stand in Grass Valley California that makes them.Tasty!

Yeah, one is definitely enough. Two is probably coming out the other end like a fire hydrant with all the grease you'd consume.

If you're in Pittsburgh, there's a great British Isles spot called Piper's Pub. They do brilliant Scotch eggs, cream salmon boxty, many beers on tap, and footie on the telly.

4?


is 1 "a snack" ?

is 2 "a hearty appetizer" ?

is 3 "a light meal" ?

is there a formal equation that factors in the calories of accompanying alcohol?


and WHY is there math now involved?

I've also had them made with bratwurst sausage meat.  Also delicious.

I've never had a plain Scotch egg, but I have had devilled Scotch eggs, and they were pretty farking good.

I had some in the UK on a vacation years ago, and they were the best thing ever!

I was stuck on an extremely boring bus tour that gave us Subway veggie subs and plain Lays chips for lunch. It was the final straw. I asked the guide for my tickets for the other stops and left. The first thing I encountered was a pub with scotch eggs, so I downed two beers, ate three scotch eggs and a salmon pie, then went about the rest of my day in much better spirits.

/In retrospect, I was already agitated by the boring tour, but that Subway triggered me.
//What jerk decides to feed tourists Subway veggie subs?!? It's been 3 years and I still remember that wretched thing!
///I apologize to the poor guy in the pub who  had to serve a ridiculous amount of food to a visibly-agitated Asian-American woman.

1. Start your article with completely-manufactured mischaracterization.
2. Counter that with a mea culpa, then use the mischaracterization to drive the rest of the article.
3. Explain the use of the mischaracterization by inserting your own opinion, based not on data or rational explanation but on a manufactured recategorization.
4. Pander to your intended audience - in this case, the "working class" - by then using the mischaracterization & recategorization as the basis for your refutation, ideally adding an anecdote to cement your refuation.

Ta-da! You have a completely bullshiat article that does absolutely nothing but justify naked bias.

One, when you wrap the sausage and egg in bacon strips not coat it in crumbs. For a complete heart stopper wrap the egg with cheese slices before the sausage. The best way to keep the layers together is to paste everything with egg yolk as you wrap them up

love scotch eggs

I've only had two in my life. The Oxley in T.O., and this wonderful local place called The Londoner now turned american fare. Both were amazing and quite filling.

Make them with soft boiled eggs, since the eggs are cooked in advance. The amount of time they're in the deep frier to cook the sausage and breadcrumb isn't long enough to set the yolk - the outer layer acts as an insulator. Same sort of principle as Baked Alaska.

Only tried making the soft boiled version once though - they were extra fiddly to peel without breaking and really not worth the hassle.

i always use the "peel with a spoon" method on jammy eggs, coaxing off any stubborn bits under tepid running water. try it!

Oh, thank you! That looks useful.

They look very tasty but they also seem to be a pain in the arse to make. I suck at peeling hard-boiled eggs after trying every Youtube lifehack imaginable.

/ Not exactly in a part of the USA where those are made at restaurants or bars.
