Scotch Egg

You are looking at a scotch egg. I finally had the courage to order one recently from our local British pub, "The Horse Brass." To those of you who have never had a scotch egg, it's basically a hard-boiled egg, encased in sausage, and deep fried. It came with potato chips and a honey-mustard sauce. I was anticipating a gut bomb, but it wasn't bad. Eggs, good. Sausage, good. Deep Fried, GOOOOOD! It had a surprising lightness to it. It was sliced on the top like a radish rose, sort of open at the top. The sausage was mild but flavorful. I highly recommend it to all of you. It's even better at the Horse Brass, where you get monster pints, much bigger than those sissy beers at crap bars.

I give the scotch egg two pudgy, cholesterol-laden thumbs up!

Oh man, I've ordered this before and I still wax poetic about it. If you and Midge ever come east I'll take you to The Old Spot (our local British pub) and the scotch eggs are on me.
