Perfect Scotch eggs


Fortnum and Mason claim to have invented Scotch eggs as a luxury ready-to-eat meal in the days of horse-drawn travel. If true, every picnicker in the country owes them a debt of gratitude. I like to double coat mine to make them extra crunchy, but you can save time and miss this step out if you like. Buy sausage meat separately or just use your favourite sausages and remove the skins.
