A Loch Neese Monster............


The Scottish people are well known for being

FRUGAL! My Great-Grand Fathers last name was McGlashan.

One of the family stories that was passed down thru oral history,

was that of a 4th of July gathering at Cousin Ross McGlashan's

farm around the 1910's. As the men were sitting around after

dinner drinking and getting 'Festive', Cousin Ross said to the

newly-wedded and notoriously frugal Cousin Maxwell...

"Hey Max, if you shovel and haul away the manure from my

horse barn, I'll give you a DIME!" Cousin Maxwell thought for a

moment, then went in and fetched his new wife and promtly worked

as a team till the job was finished. When he collected his Dime, he was

asked why he agreed to do that task for such a paltry sum. His response

was...."A dime will buy me a Whole Years Supply of wooden kitchen

matches...Two Hours work for a years supply of a much needed item?

Wouldn't you do that?"

Now Thats FRUGAL!!!


The theory behind The Scotch Egg was that you have your Bread..Meat

...And Egg all in one hand held item.

Boil and peel some eggs...4 Eggs per pound of sausage.

(Notice that HUGE Jumbo Honkin egg in the forefront).

Divide the sausage into four parts, (5 parts will work as well).

Form a patty, and put the egg in the middle, enclosing it completely.

Roll it in some bread crumbs.

Bake for 1/2 hr at 350 degrees...Turn over and bake for another 1/2 hr.


My son Reese LOVES this dish. Serve with spicy Mustard...DAMN!!!

Ha.....I Knew that big egg was a double yolker!!!!!

Peace Laddies and Lassies.....G-Man.

I love Scotch Eggs.

wish we could get square sausage here. I miss it with a runny egg on toast!

Looks yummy, G-man.

My family traces much of its lineage back to Scotland as well. But i think my ancestors were too poor to be cheap. You can't spend what you don't have. ;)

You might need the match in the bathroom instead of the kitchen after eating that. But then, some of the bestvfoods are like that. Some of us like cabbage rolls around here... So, you really do like these? ...

Wow, I haven't had those since I was a kid. I bet you have a copy of a killer Pastie recipe. But who can buy sheep meat around here?
