Sensational Scotch Eggs

I ended up with a dozen eggs in the fridge and after much thought about what to do with them, I remember that old-fashioned favourite – Scotch Eggs! Scotch Eggs are a bit of a labour of love but the end result is worth all the fiddling about with eggs and breadcrumbs (who doesn’t hate…
