Scotch eggs are a novelty in the States. They’re the hip new thing that gastropubs serve. I think we first had them in Chicago at either The Gage or Longman & Eagle. Not sure … it may have even been at Three Floyds brewery in Indiana. They’re slowly creeping into the beer-food culture.
To the uninitiated, Scotch eggs are hard-boiled eggs covered in sausage and breading then deep-fried. They’re delicious and decadent.
Here, they’re everywhere. They’re not novelties to be jokingly eaten. They’re regular food. You can buy them at the grocery stores. We did. We also had a posh version (that’s UK-speak for a luxury version). Cue the pictures.
