Being great fans of British food, we absolutely love Scotch Eggs. I mean, hardboiled egg, wrapped in sausage, and fried? YES. And when you can use any size egg for these, the options widen considerably. We made bite-sized versions with quail eggs, and nearly ate them all before we got the photographs taken. For an amazing variation, try using white or black pudding instead of regular sausage meat.
Why it should be in the Next Book:
Because it’s decadent, delicious, and entirely in keeping with the food aesthetic in A Song of Ice and Fire. They would be best suited to one of the Northern regions, although now that winter really is coming, they could be tasty anywhere in Westeros.
