Haggis scotch egg

A well-made scotch egg with a warm, jammy yolk, juicy forcemeat and crispy breadcrumb coating is a thing of beauty. A near perfect snack, the scotch egg can be a vehicle for so many variations on the original recipe. This is one of my favourites. The flavours are simple and clean, relying purely on quality ingredients being handled with a little care. If the idea of eating haggis has previously felt intimidating, this is a great way to try it and then, inevitably, fall deeply in love with it.
