Suddenly everyone has gone crazy for Scotch Eggs.
They're thee snack of choice in all the best pubs in London town.
It's nothing new. It's not exactly re-inventing the wheel, more a case of re-discovering the cojones. Big spherical breadcrumbed cojones.
In the Guinness guide to profitable snacks (1961) you'll find Scotch Eggs, alongside ham salad sandwiches and cheese and onion pies, in the chapter Farmers' Specials.
Surely the time is right for all pubs to bring back the heated pie cabinet. And more cheese and onion cobs.
