Scotch Eggs

Said to have been invented more than 275 years ago by a London department store, Fortnum & Mason, there’s always been much more to the humble, yet flavor- and protein-packed Scotch Egg than meets the eye. Traditionally, a hard boiled egg is wrapped in sausage then coated in bread crumbs and baked, but this British picnic staple continues to appear on American menus both in the traditional style and in new, modern forms.
