Troika #17: The Scotch Egg

Troika #17: The Scotch Egg

This Troika is a musical representation of one of my favourite foods – the mighty Scotch Egg!

Scotch Eggs, just in case you’ve never come across such a delicacy, consist of three layers (just like a Troika!). At it’s core is a hardboiled (but can be softboiled) egg, wrapped in sausage meat and then coated in breadcrumbs before frying. Some fancy ‘artisan’ scotch eggs do things like substitute smoked haddock or black pudding for the sausage meat, while others wrap in crisps rather than breadcrumbs! They’re all tasty, but this one is dedicated to the ‘classic’ no-nonsense scotch egg.

So here we are – less waffle with this episode, lets get on with it! Here are the ingredients in this Troika Scotch Egg:

  1. ‘Breadcrumbs’ – Deca
    This is my kind of hip-hop. Laid back, quality wordplay and great samples! Deca is an artist (in the musical and physical sense) from Brooklyn.
  2. ‘Valley of the Sausages’ – Mr Scruff
    This is the first track I thought of when I decided to do this theme. A great pick from Mr Scruffs ‘Trouser Jazz’ album.
  3. ‘Egg’ – The Garden
    And so we got to a bass & drums duo from Orange County, California, who describe their style as ‘Vada-Vada’ to avoid being pigeonholed.

The Guardian has a nice little article if you want to familiarise yourself with history and global variations of this king of picnic snacks.
