The Scotch egg is the ideal food you want for breakfast or a picnic, but where does it come from? Believe it or not Scotch eggs are not Scottish and are said to be of North African origin, according to Culturetrip.com and The Guardian.
The dish was introduced to the British by the French and received its name from William J Scott, who served them in a local eatery. The Scotch eggs he made were covered in fish paste instead of meat and known as “Scotties”.
The glorious egg was a delicacy reports, Culturtrip.com, with only the elite being able to enjoy it. However, through the years it has become a favourite among all countries and cultures and even has the reputation as the ultimate “pub food” where it’s deemed standard to enjoy with a chilled lager.
