What is a Scotch Egg?

A Scotch egg is a hard-boiled egg usually covered in sausagemeat and breadcrumbs and then deep-fried but nowadays Scotch eggs can now be found that are made with ingredients such as black pudding, chorizo and, of course, haggis.

Are Scotch Eggs Scottish?

No! Seemingly they were invented by Fortnum & Mason in London, or at least made popular by them as a picnic food.  ‘Scotch’ is a corruption of ‘scorched’ which was used to describe the cooking of the egg/meat mixture over an open fire as the egg/meat concoction would be scorched by the fire.

What is Haggis?

It’s a savoury ‘pudding’ (like black and white pugging) dish containing sheep’s offal such as heart, liver, and lungs, mixed together with spices and oatmeal and encased in a sheeps stomach.  Nowadays the haggis is usually in an artificial skin and can be bought all year round.  There is also a vegetarian haggis from Macsweens.
