Super Bowl Party and Easy Picnic Recipe

Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky is known for its German immigrant heritage as well as Scotch-Irish influences. Brewing beer used to be a huge local tradition. Many of my friend’s parents worked at the local brewery, and after work we would gather to share some suds and appetizers.

Years ago appetizers weren’t fancy. Pickles straight from the jar and Scotch Eggs were found in neighborhood hang outs; the same treat that has been served in English public houses since the 1700’s.

Scotch Eggs are boiled eggs encased in sausage and deep fried. I remember them served in threes, clustered in a deli basket like a clutch of dinosaur eggs. This was a dish shared with friends. Not very pretty, but mighty tasty with a cold brew.

Nowadays, we usually slice Scotch Eggs in quarters as a garnish with a spring salad. These are fun for picnics and tailgates too!

Enjoy with your favorite cold beverage. And excuse for interjecting, but GO STEELERS! Giggles
