i have a couple of 'em a week usually.
so about 100.
just looked on the packet, says scotch egg.
They are my lunch of choice for a picnic - a satisfying meal, in an easy, no-fuss ball.
So 'a few'
A fairly rare, but much beloved, snack.
in England, some utterly ludicrous figure, possible 100+.
Things you miss most about living in the UK...
Despite being Scottish.
this isn't another thread where you can look down on people because you paid £20 for a burger once.
Ok, a proper, fresh scotch egg from a butchers as opposed to one in a 2-pack from a supermarket. Don't know what else to call it.
£2.85 each, including;
Smokey Joe - Scotch egg with smoked bacon.
Blackwatch - Scotch egg with black pudding
scotch eggs were definitely invented by Asda
more likely it's a british adaptation of a similar middle eastern dish made with lamb instead of pork
Do black pudding scotch eggs also count? If so, a VERY significant number.
my life now has purpose
How does it work, in a structural sense? Black pudding inside the egg?
its clearly a scotch egg with black pudding instead of sausage you absolute numpty
But yeah, why would the black pudding be inside the egg?!
It's amazing. The best one i've had is from The Oxford in kentish town. But I've had lots of good ones. You can also get a manchester egg, whiich is sausage meat and blackpudding and is just mind blowing.
and ALWAYS in a state of hangover
had a veggie one once...it was rubbish.
seriously try it, they are amazing
as if someone might keep a spreadsheet with the exact figure on.
So maybe 40 mini scotch-eggs a year.
I never ate em before but then I discovered they're amazing with generous amounts of brown sauce...so I've started buying a 2-pac of Scotch Eggs from Tesco's, probably on average once a fortnight depending on my food shopping schedule.
I might start branching out again savoury snack wise though, you can get stuck in a rut. I might get into those Jamaican "patties" they do next to the Scotch eggs, they look nice and you've got more flavours in them.
But i was talking about them recently. My bf has never had one!!! this must change.
I might bring this number up to 12, and try have one a month.
though you don't see many full scale eggs at those kind of events,more the mini variety, unless money is no object.....
just went to the shops though and they had some mini chicken kiev things that looked exactly like a scotch egg, didn't take the plunge though and am regretting it already
fucking love scotch eggs, me
I think it has meat in it?
Quorn do them (and other brands prob). But as I've put above, they are rubbish.
none. piss off
If so at least 10-20
Just had two standard ones from M&S, pretty good.
I fucking love scotch eggs.
For standard packaged ones M&S are best but you can't beat a good fresh one. The Blacksmith and Toffeemaker in Clerkenwell does AMAZING ones and there are pretty good ones to be found at Borough Market too.
Then probably <1. I don't really like them but will occasionally give them a go. I also had a salmon one in a gastropub which I approved of.
If, as some people rather questionable are, we're including mini Scotched eggs AKA boulders AKA savoury bites, then I am a big fan of these although they give you rancid breath. I would estimate I eat six of these four times a year equals twenty four.
for stuffing into my greedy gob. Between 12 and 19?
I had 12 mini quorn jobbers in one session alone on Sunday.
Only discovered them a year ago. Love them now tho.
Pork pies on the other hand....well over 100. Bloody LOVE pork pies.
The proper full sized ones with the whole egg inside = never
i'm sick of fucking supermarket scotch eggs with that horrible gassy smell when you bite through the sausagemeat
and i'm damned if i'm paying £4 for a gastropub scotch egg
One of the funnest foods to make.
Had one of those fancy black pudding scotch eggs recently. Bloody Lovely!
Regular Scotch eggs
Black pudding eggs
Thai red curry eggs
Smoked haddock and potato eggs
All incredible. But you can only eat so many per year! These are light years ahead of the brown tennis balls you get at Tesco.
Waitrose and M&S now each have improved versions of the Scotch egg, the Cumberland and the Lancashire, I think. More expensive than regular, but waaaay nicer. They enhance practically any lunch.
i call it King Of The Babies
Veggie ones From Tebay services. One northbound and one southbound. Both were accompanied by a small flan/tartlet.
as I used to have one for breakfast every week day. I had to cut them out altogether as unsurprisingly I gained a lot of weight and they are addictive.
I can't find that appealing
