Scotch Eggs

 Apparently Scotch Eggs from the Rose and Crown Pub are missed a lot.  Many e-mails sent to this page talk about them.  In case you don't know what they are, Walt Dated World reader Martin McKinnell explains:
"Scotch Eggs are a traditional 'pub snack'.  They are hard boiled eggs that are coated in sausage meat and deep fried.  Despite everyone's first impression, there is no alcohol in them.  They are served cold (actually refrigerated) with an English mustard/HP sauce garnish.  English mustard (brand names Keens or Colemans) is very different from traditional American mustard and HP sauce is an English steak sauce.  This description does not sound appetizing at all, but when I worked in EPCOT, I took at least six people in and convinced them to try it.  None of them liked the description, but every last one of them liked the Scotch Eggs and kept asking, 'Can we go back to the pub for those eggs again?'   I think the reason Disney no longer serves Scotch Eggs is that they are very labor intensive to make."
As a post script to this memory, I later received an e-mail from someone who is a cast member at Epcot and I'm told Scotch Eggs are available again.
