These are so fun to make! Provided you don’t mind your hands getting a bit messy. They are the sort of thing that, when homemade, really impress people! Also, they taste good. This is another BBC Good Food recipe: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1414645/scotch-eggs
I made them for a surprise party earlier this year and they went down very well.
Note that the scotch eggs are much harder to shape with the addition of bacon, so whether you include it or not depends on how much of a bacon fiend you are. I made some with and some without – I actually preferred them without and the whole conveyor belt process speeds up significantly!
