Description

Hailing from the highlands, these scotch eggs are a decadent treat. Featuring a hardboiled egg at the center, a layer of sausage meat surrounds the egg and is then rolled in a herbed breadcrumbs and egg mixture before being fried to a golden crisp. Sprinkle some grated cheese on before serving for additional melty flavor. These eggs make a fun addition to breakfast or brunch but can also be a feature on your dinner table.
