Scotch Eggs!!!

Some of my employees were goofing around and making bets about deep frying a raw egg earlier in the week. Must to their dismay, it exploded in the fryer!

I asked if they had ever had Scotch Eggs and no one knew what I was referring to so I proceeded to make a few and a Cheddar/Dijon Sauce to spoon over them.

Those that are egg lovers...loved the Scotch Eggs; one employee even wanted to know if we were adding them to the menu! Although, I prefer them as an Appetizer or Brunch item.
