There’s certainly a rustic appearance about the Randalls Butchers Scotch egg. It’s meaty with a thick, rugged rim of breadrumbs. Rough and crumbly. The sausage meat appears to be unseasoned. There are no flecks of colour. No black dots of pepper or green strands of parsley. You cannot scent fresh thyme or spring onion, but rather plain, flat sausage meat which cushions the centre egg. The egg itself is fine. Just fine. It’s not over-boiled and has a rich, vibrant orange yolk.
This is a run of the meal production. A basic Scotch egg. Faultless but by no means exciting.
