Today, I fell in love with a scotch egg…
Many of you are probably unaware that I had a “crap scotch egg league table” a while back to rank the supermarket scotch eggs in order of preference. I’m not really sure why I did it and I must admit, I have no real urge to finish it.
The lesson I learned from my short lived and half hearted journey was that even the deli supermarket scotch eggs rarely cut it and this is something which has been firmly cemented in my mind after a visit to Scotties.
A single scotch egg is around £5.50. They are fresh to order but I was lucky to catch one which had only just been made 5 minutes ago, so I didn’t have to wait.
I was absolutely encapsulated by the idea of the “haddock, potato, and spring onion” option as it was something which (quite frankly) I would never have thought would go well with a scotch egg, so I decided to give it a go for curiosities sake.
You know how you can often tell that food looks amazing just by looking at it? This was one of those occasions.
There were a couple of scotch eggs cut open and on display to give you an idea of what they were like. The ones in the front are the haddock and potato ones I had ordered and looked absolutely fantastic. Look at that filling!
Upon ordering, mine looked even better than the ones on display but with an even thicker filling. I can safely say that the £5.50 was worth every penny.
The egg was just the right amount of runny without it being too gooey. I couldn’t recommend these enough! I will never be able to go back to a supermarket scotch egg again!
Life is getting too expensive! 😂
