    These just weren't very appetizing. Despite the flawed name, I tried them as I like most of the ingredients. I prepared and cooked them exactly as stated in the recipe. "Real" scotch eggs (although a English invention) are made with sausage meat, not ham and anchovies. I don't know what the "Two Fat Ladies" were thinking when they dubbed them "Real" scotch eggs.

    I have never in my life had anything like this, and these are great! I really like them, almost to the point of surprise. I don't know why though since I like all of the ingredients separately. I dipped them in dijon mustard, mmmm. I would make these again, most definately! Made for ZWT6: No-Nonsense Nibblers.
