What better way to kick-start the blog than with a scotch egg?
This intrinsically British dish contains three potentially unsavoury ingredients:
- Hard boiled egg (delicious when done right, but so much scope to create a hard, rubbery monstrosity)
- Sausage meat (intimidatingly pink and fleshy)
- Deep-fried breadcrumb outside (reminiscent of a night-out-in-Scotland-gone-wrong ending with battered food of any genre– pizza, mars bars, haggis…)
