Scotch egg

How to cook Scotch Egg?

The Scotch egg has nothing to do with Scotland. This dish was invented in 1738 by the London company Fortune & Mason. In different regions of Britain, and in General the planet, this dish is prepared differently. Ground beef is replaced with pork or chicken minced meat, sometimes boiled potatoes. Enough history — it’s time to cook!
