Tomato and Basil Scotch Egg (Sainsburys) By @Cinabar

Tomato and Basil Scotch Egg

The lockdown rules seem to be changing at such a regular pace that you really do have to check before making plans. Currently we still have 2m distancing, but can meet outside for a small picnic. The weather is lovely so one of the choices for the picnic basket might well be a scotch egg, Sainsbury's have added a new variety so we thought we would give it a whirl.

This is the new Tomato and Basil Scotch Egg, they come individually packed so perfect for packing up to take out but I have to admit we had them at home at lunch time. The eggs are a little bit redder in colour than a regular scotch egg, and you can see the basil packed into the sausage meat. The flavour is lovely too. I like ketchup with a scotch egg so I am already converted to the addition of tomato, it goes nicely with the pork. The basil gives them an Italian feel which makes a bit posher and is a nice twist. I recommend these Tomato and Basil Scotch Egg, a nice variation on a classic. Here is hoping the sunshine last till the weekend.
