Brit's Pub Scotch Eggs: 100 Favorite Dishes, No. 45
The humble Scotch egg combines two bang-up breakfast foods and turns them into an edible, portable, rollable snack--that somehow manages to make sausage and eggs pair perfectly with pints of beer.
Crack the treats open to see their geologic history: they began as hard-cooked eggs, which were then coated in a layer of thick, spicy sausage, then covered in breadcrumbs and deep fried. The only thing that could possible make their caloric decadence even more over the top is a dunk in that little bowl of mayonnaise. You should never pass that up.
And the ambiance of Brit's roofdeck--complete with chic people watching and lawn bowling!--makes the Scotch egg experience that much finer. When, o when, will the snow melt and the patio furniture arrive?
