I am the United Nations of Snacking.
We watched the World Cup quarter-final match between Brazil and The Netherlands at Piper's Pub, a British Isles-themed sports bar and restaurant in Pittsburgh, PA. While there, naturally, I had to try my first Scotch Egg.
A Scotch Egg is a hard-boiled egg that is somehow encased in a sort of bread-and-sausage batter and then fried. Yow! I was not expecting my eggs (which were cut in half and served to me with hot sauce) to be so thick and large. But, however overwhelming, they were quite good -- especially dipped in the hot sauce. It took four of us to eat my serving, though. This is a snack to share. And eat it hot!
