These aren’t just scotch eggs… these are M&S scotch eggs!

Scotch eggs are the best picnic food ever. Fact. They have seen something of a revival recently and the once humble picnic fare are nowadays very commonly found as a starter on restaurant menus. This can only be a good thing, as any opportunity to have another scotch egg should be encouraged. M&S have a new product in their (generally very good) Gastropub range, runny poached scotch eggs.

I just had to buy a pack and try these on the day I saw them. Just me and my daughter at home so thought that these would make a great lunch, served with some chunky chips and a side salad. I’ve made scotch eggs many times before, generally an easy thing to make, if you aren’t worried about consistency. However, I don’t see how you can cook a scotch egg and keep the egg yolk runny? Well, it is…

You cut it open and the yolk pours straight out. Given that it has essentially been cooked three times (the egg is poached and then deep fried when encased in sausage meat before I heat it up in the oven) this is surely almost impossible? I can only assume that the first two cooking stages take place before the middle is retrospectively injected with the runny yolk. Either way, it doesn’t matter, because it tastes great! A super-super-super epic lunch or starter! Seek them out.

  2. I believe what you wrote was very reasonable. However, what about this?
    suppose you added a little content? I am not suggesting your content is not good.
    , but what if you added a post title that makes people desire more?
    I mean "These aren't just scotch eggs... these are M&S scotch eggs!" is
    kinda plain. You could look at Yahoo's home page and see how they create news headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people interested about what you've got
    to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
