Ahh, does the OP mean Scotch eggs? Hard boiled egg rolled in a layer of pork sausage meat then rolled in breadcrumbs.

What about 'Blind Robins'?

Road food

They sell these in bars to promote further drinking, as they are very salty.

A quote from the link:


These things would gag a billygoat.

I'd sooner scarf down a plate of Rocky Mountain Oysters.






I used to work in a restaurant that served those. I was the one that had to prepare them


Talk about a strange experience. They are pretty good, but if you know how they are prepared, it's kinda disgusting.

Your recipe sounds interesting. I never thought of using a different kind of vinegar, but I bet it makes a difference. I must try this one for sure.

I'm Canadian, btw, where pubs across the country usually have pickled eggs, some way tastier than others. Although a scotch egg looks wonderful, what I was thinking about was a pickled egg. The ones I've had have herbs in the liquid, but I'm loving the stuff I'm learning in this thread.

Yeah, but you Brits eat jellied eels.

Do they keep those at the bars for a snack?

edit on 7-10-2011 by butcherguy because: (no reason given)


Yes my friend, I lived in London for 9 years and there are still plates of jellied eels on the pub bar, and the fish man still comes around the pubs with his massive wicker basket selling prawn cocktails, cockles, mussels, whelks and other various things to nibble with a real pint.....Mmmmmmmmmmmm

How about a hot pig's feet stew? It a delicacy, enjoyed in the province of Quebec and other francophone towns in Canada. Should you ever visit be sure to order "Ragout de pattes de cochon."

Do I dare ask what pork scratchings are?
Never been to the lad of the Brits, but if someone has an extra ticket, I sure would love to go!


Just for you, 4 short videos. One video of a hairy pork scratching, one video complete with web address if you wish to order a couple of packets.And 2 others including the pork scratching eating challenge.....Enjoy...hahahahahaha.

HAHAHA, and I had to ask! (we need a facepalm icon, ATS) The first one really needs a shave.
The contest eater is most definitely a massochist with a cast iron stomach.
Either that or he's looking for an excuse not to come into work for the next few days.
As for ordering some, not today, thanks anyway.

They're really good. My mom use to make those when I was a kid. I haven't had them in years, but might try to make some this weekend

Some of these recipes sound good must try them, especially the beetroot juice ones.

Actually never seen a pickled egg in a pub (seen plenty of jar in the chippies tho)..

But on reading your thread I found myself slipping back into a moment of nostalgia and the big plates of roast potatoes the landlady would make on a Sunday *drool* with a nice saucer of salt to dip them in *shudder of delight*

I guess she thought that would help the guys who had to go home to find they where late and the Sunday Roast was in the dog

I'm a yank, and I am not familiar with the term 'chippies'.

I would appreciate it if someone could enlighten me!

Apologies.. Fish and Chip shops
tho I miss the traditional fish and chips served in real newspaper, which added a certain flavour along with black ink fingers and about the best use for mainstream newspapers

Thank you very much!

I had visited England in 1990, but never picked up on the term. I even visited a 'chippie' in London!

Yeah pickled eggs have fallen out of favour in England.
It's all about the 'scratchins' these days.

I remember when a guy used to go around with the big hamper full of prawns and mussels. OMNOMNOM Vinegary prawns how I miss thee. Haven't seen Cheesey Moments in an age - Thought they'd stopped making them.
Scampi fries are a big fav, not very sociable though are they?

i'm sure you used to torment the guy asking if he had any crabs availabile
but there was no way i'd buy sea food from a guy in a pub after a few beers as i never fancied spending a few days welded to the toilet

Remember those days well when the fish selling bloke would come around the pub with his big hamper. We used to shout, 'Alright mate, got any crabs on ya cock?'......sounds rude, but the word cock in the north of England where I come from means mate. Just a bit of a play on words in the old Brit wit way...

I had never heard of a pub egg so I read through the whole post here. I have heard of pickled eggs, but wouldn't even know where to get them and I'm not about to make any. LOL I love eggs though, in just about every form, but I think I would have to skip the pickled eggs. Now if it were deviled eggs then I'm on board! I have an awesome recipe for deviled eggs! LOL

Scratchings I had never heard of, but it sounds like pork rinds/Chiccarones. It's fried pork skin right? I have never ever had it with hair still on it, that's disgusting!

I wish we had more interesting bar food here in the US though, I'm tired of chips, dips,nachos, potato boats, ect.. so blah
