PORKtoberfest Day 4: the scotch egg edition

I remember the Midtown Fall Festival of last year, rather well.
It was the first time I ever had scotch eggs.

It was at Fergies and I believe they saved my life that day.
However, constant consumption would probably take several days off said life.

From Wikipedia: A Scotch egg consists of a cold hard-boiled egg removed from its eggshell, wrapped in a sausage meat mixture, coated in breadcrumbs, and deep-fried. The dish was invented by the London food shop Fortnum & Mason, in 1851.[1]

  1. Grey Lodge makes a pretty good version. They serve 'em on St. Andrew's day. St. Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland. Scotch Ale, Scotch eggs, and, errr, Scotch. Whisky. Every bar celebrates St Patty's day (it's my birthday, so it's pretty special to me) but how many celebrate St. Andrew's day?
