What’s better than a perfectly executed Scotch Egg? How about a Scotch Egg BURGER?
It all starts with an oozy (but not too oozy) 7-minute egg. That egg is then wrapped with homemade, hand-ground breakfast sausage, panko-crusted and fried. It’s served on a homemade Parker House bun, green peppercorn mustard and horseradish aioli (both also homemade), plus Cheddar cheese and iceberg lettuce.
This magnificent beast is available at Chef Josef Centeno’s Ledlow Restaurant in downtown L.A. It was an off-menu item for quite a while, but it became so popular that it’s on the regular menu (at least for the time being).
I dream about this Scotch Egg Burger, and it’s currently my favorite “cheat day” meal to share with my husband (we do low carb at home). We share the burger, a salad or two plus cocktails. It’s a great hangover prevention, or even a late morning hangover cure. Trust me — I’ve actually “tested” all the options. What else can I say? It’s just SO damn good.
