Often the dreaded party snack, these mini savoury Scotch eggs come as a 12-pack by the happy egg company. Using outdoor reared pork sausage meat and free-range egg mayonnaise, they were a pleasant little surprise. Liberally rolled in breadcrumbs and meatier than I’d expected, these are delicate meaty gobstoppers.
Ingredients include: salt, sage, black pepper, onion, sugar beet, coriander, nutmeg and rosemary extract, and while each individual flavour isn’t noticeable as a standalone, there is a certain palatable medley.
They’re difficult to judge being a move away from the traditional Scotch egg (minus hard boiled egg), but a decent attempt at the mini treat and much, much better than the usual bright orange, thinly applied breadcrumb, egg mayonnaise hodgepodge you get from supermarket party packs.
