Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Contest Entry. I found an old recipe book about 30 years ago and it had the recipe for Scotch eggs in it. Being raised in the Souuth, I had never heard of them. When I started making them, people acted as if I had done something amazing. I started playing with the recipe, using different proteins and crumbs and I thought "Why not try a deviled egg?" These have been a big hit at my get-togethers ever since. The recipe may sound intimidating, but just think back to your Play Dough days and have fun. If I'm only serving appetizers, I serve two halves per person. If food is to follow, I serve one half.
