I've had a couple of Scotch eggs in my day, and can't say they're the most delectable creations. The sausage is normally dry and the egg is overcooked. However, the Cajun-inspired version described here sounds pretty yummy. I like the idea of a soft-boiled egg, rather than a hard-boiled one (because few people hard-boil eggs properly), and I think any kind of sausage would work. Kinda makes me want to experiment with it myself sometime soon.
Who around these here parts likes Scotch eggs? Where have you eaten them? Have you tried the nasty dry bombs at Bertha's?
Despite being of Scottish heritage, I have never eaten a Scotch Egg. I'm not even sure I know what one is, exactly!
I grew up in a small village in England - so have had many scotch eggs. There's a woman in the village (my ex's mom) who makes them perfectly, the egg is still moist, the sausage cooked perfectly and has the a light brown crust on the outside. They were so good I went home and tried to make them - disaster! The problem is getting the sausage meet cooked all the way through withough cremating the outside or them ending up a big greasy mess! Have been wanting to try to make them again - found this recipe on bbc food: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/database/scotcheggs_85851.shtml
although I'm a little skittish after the last attempt - it's not often that recipes don't work for me and trust me it was horrible! Let us know if you have any success!
