IHCC and CC#18: Scotch eggs with homemade chorizo

With the balance of the homemade chorizo, I made Scotch eggs, with Hugh's capers mayo on the side!
If you are making Scotch eggs for a home cook meal, you may use a running yolk soft boiled egg, but if the Scotch eggs are for a meal away from home or for a picnic - it is suggested that your eggs be almost hard boiled and they be kept in a cooler box during transit and storage before serving.
I am quite happy with the results - my first ever Scotch eggs! Perhaps need to perfect the wrapping of the meat mixture evenly around the eggs.  I boiled the eggs for 4 minutes and immediately transferred them into ice cold water and left them till completely cooled.  Two of the three eggs I used I peeled without any problems and the third? - craters but not broken.  That was a relief! 
Using sprigs of curry leaves to line the platter and taking this opportunity to show off some of my Chinese spoon collection!
and I am sticking with Hugh!

That's pretty impressive, I never tried to make Scotch eggs before. Great job!

I make these scotch eggs and love them. Your spoon collection looks fabulous.

Looks like they turned out perfect to me! Awesome job. I was interested to see the curry leaves (as we don't have them here) and I also love the Chinese spoon collection :)
