    Scottish Eggs? Is this a real recipe from there?

    http://www.copykat.com/component/option,com_rapidrecipe/Itemid,28/page,viewrecipe/recipe_id,1002/

    And if it is, I can't seem to wrap my head around the deep frying part for that long. Is it not greasy? Is it good? I'm looking for recipes, would like something new to try and fit into our weekly meals.

    Any suggestions anyone?

    Mitz,

    It all depends what your after? I have loads of recipies for things like cornish pasties, ginger farthings (ginger biscuits really). Some typical cornish meals others just nice from all over.

    Never liked Scotch eggs, not a big fan of boiled egg and sausage meat. Dont like pork pies either, tho most of me family do.

    If you really wanna try summat out there Mitz how about deep fried cadburys cream eggs or Mars bars?? Im told thier really tasty.

    Will post a few ideas when i get home if i can find me books or PM ya a few of the better ones.

    :eek: Ohhh, no you don't. I know what is in that stuff and can't get past it. And I've heard some rumors about haggis. Don't think I want to go there either.:biggrin

    And actually that recipe sounds better then what the picture looks. I loved boiled eggs but I think not. If I do decide to try it I"ll let you know.


    Twizzle, I would appreciate any recipes you would like to share. Don't do pasties, so nothing fancy.:) I have a meat and potatoes man, but meatloaf, spaghetti, and fried chicken is getting boring. Although I'm making BBQ ribs in the oven tonight.:) Yum

    Damn, nothing worse than missing a ping, esp from Mitzs !!! :oops:

    Mixed opinions above, but yup - most are on the button... Scotch eggs are a superb snack or main meal base, as per the recipe, and as for haggis, well, real Scots have an ability to block out the thought of the contents until well after the meal. Can't thank how we do it ... :morebeer :D

    How about 'Gratin Dauphinoise'?. A posh name for cheese and onion and potato pie, sort of.
    1. Peel spuds and slice about eighth of an inch thick.
    2. Peel onions and chop coarsely.
    3. Grate the cheese - A good strong Cheddar is favourite.
    4. Get yourself a good oven-proof dish and put the potato, cheese, and onion in successive layers, adding salt and pepper to taste. You may want to go a bit easy on the salt because of all the cheese.
    5. Optional - Pour half-pint double cream over the top.
    5. Finish off with a good layer of your favourite of the three main ingredients. Cover the dish with tin foil.
    6. Bung it in the oven on about Gas Mark 6. It'll probably need about one and a half hours. It's easy to check, just remove from the oven and prod the spuds witha fork to see when they are done. Remove the tin foil for the last 15 minutes to nicely brown off the top. Best to check regularly in this last 15 minutes, unless you want particularly like charcoal topping. If the tops not browning to your liking then just turn up the oven, but keep an eye on it.
    This is also very acceptable with thick slices of Tomato topping it off. Enjoy!
