The Ploughman’s

This is the first Scotch egg I’ve tried that combines cheese in its makeup. It really binds the sausage meat and other ingredients resulting in a slightly chewy, richer in flavour, body. When cut, there are smooth squeezes of runny cheese that stick to the knife and eventually the teeth. It’s not enough of an overriding flavour to mask the sausage however the onion does have a persistent taste.

The shell is golden thick, rolled generously in panko breadcrumbs, while the egg is cooked precisely (as you’d expect from The Handmade Scotch Egg Company). Serve alongside a spicy chutney!

Price: £2.65

Overall: 3/5
