Scottie’s Eggs

Scottie’s Eggs

Scotty’s Eggs, Scottie’s Eggs, Scotch Eggs. This intriguing dish comes by many names from many destinations. According to Emma Lavelle in “The Contentious History of the Scotch Egg,” the Scotch egg was supposedly invented in the 18th Century at Fortnum & Mason, the luxury London department store, as a snack available only to the upper classes. In contrast, its creation has also been attributed to the establishment of William J. Scott and Sons in the Yorkshire town of Whitby. Then again, some say it comes from Indian cuisine, exported to England from the British Raj. But it might have drifted in from North Africa by way of France. No one knows for sure. But what they do know is that it’s delicious!

With Black Forest ham, heavy cream, and your choice of a good cheese and interesting toppings, it’s a great dish for the family or for a Sunday morning brunch. It’s easy to make, but you’ll look like a culinary genius and have people begging for more!
