Scotch Eggs at Dan McGuinness



  • Justin Fox Burks
Eggs and sausage are two common breakfast items in America. We may eat eggs with a side of sausage, a sausage omelet, or even a sausage-and-egg biscuit. However, in the UK, they take this winning combination up a notch. The Scotch egg is a hard-boiled egg wrapped in seasoned sausage then deep-fried. Known as picnic food, the eggs are usually served cold, much like our American deviled eggs. At Dan McGuinness, they are served golden-brown and sizzling with a side of seasoned Dijon mustard for dipping. The serving of two comes sliced open so you can gaze upon their intricate internal splendor. This presentation is also practical as it allows you to get a piece of yolk with every bite (and look a little more sophisticated than if you bit into a giant fried ball). They are crunchy, rich, slightly decadent, and delicious. I suggest washing down an order with a pint (or two) of Guinness while watching a soccer match on the big screen.
