Are you looking to get rid of some of those hard-boiled eggs without having to eat a Chef Salad? Check out Scotch Eggs! Originally hailing from England, Scotch Eggs are fantastically savory with a little crunch. A Scotch Egg is comprised of three parts: 1 hard-boiled egg, a layer of pork sausage, and a layer of panko crumbs. We serve ours with honey mustard, but you can use whatever sauce inspires you! Enjoy!
