How to make scotch eggs

Our hens are laying enough eggs for us to try out more recipes so yesterday I made scotch eggs. In this video I coat the eggs with pork sausage meat mixed with onion and with a splash of cayenne pepper added to give the flavour an extra kick. Put them in an oven at 200C for 20 minutes.

There are two other recipes I am going to try. The first is a wartime version of scotch eggs (I am, after all, an historian!) I found recently whilst researching for a talk I was to give on wartime food. Instead of sausage meat, mashed potato is used. The second is one I have made up myself. The sausage meat is replaced with sage and onion stuffing. I hope to film the videos for these soon.
