Who knows? Maybe scotch eggs are really as big as this? Lol, I’m kidding, I don’t joke about food. No, seriously. According to Wikipedia, its’ other name is Narcissus meatballs which pretty much justifies my initial reaction.

Scotch eggs are hard boiled eggs, pretty much like our Tokneneng and Kwekwek, except that it is encased in ground meat.

This is another recipe making the rounds in Filipino food groups and I thought I’d feature it.  This is good recipe, solid and filling, plus cheap and tasty. Definitely kid and husband approved!
