Not to belittle supermarkets, but their delicacies aren’t always the best available on the market. It’s not always ‘high-end’ or top-of-the-range, however on occasion you can discover the odd gem without having to fork out in the food halls of Harrods, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Fortnum & Mason, and Sainsbury’s Scotch egg was just that.

At 59p it’s surely one of the cheapest on the market and it’s a decent size too, about the size of a small child’s fist. A perfect egg wrapped in sausage meat and coated in breadcrumbs, it ticks all the necessary boxes. And to taste?

It’s tastes great! Meaty and well-seasoned with a good , thick rim of prime porky meat encasing a creamy egg. The breadcrumbs lacked the crunch of some other morsels, but you’re always going to get that with a cold Scotch egg, not fresh and crisp from the deep-fryer. And all this for well under a quid.

Price: 59p
Overall: 3.5/5

    Have you tried the M&S runny egg yet. They are selling in their Gastro Pub Range – quite delicious!
