When I make them with quail eggs they are served as a tapa, Margi, either as-is, or, sometimes, with a ham gravy.
 
For the latter, I'll knap a small plate with a puddle of the gravy. Then make a triangle of three of the eqqs centered on the plate, and a fourth one pyromided on those three.

Even as a vegetarian, something about Scotch Eggs called to me.  I attempted a vegetarian version once using a "fake meat" (I never usually eat "fake meats" as I grew up without them and find them to be odd...if you miss meat so much, eat it!).  It wouldn't hold together, probably because of the lower fat content.  Now that I have finally taken the plunge into the meat eating world, and am for the most part, enjoying it, I'm going to have to give these a shot!

I just got to try these, although they were called "Irish Eggs." They were delicious, and I don't even LIKE hard boiled eggs!

Sometimes, Melissa, there are things we don't care for in their "raw" state that we find delicious when processed into something else.

Friend Wife, for instance, claims to not like eggs. Turns out, what she doesn't like are eggs that look like eggs (does that make sense?). So, while she won't eat a plain hard-boiled egg, she devours these Scotch eggs.

To put a point on it, she loves Ceasar salad, with the original dressing. And that uses a raw egg (or, nowadays, a slightly coddled one).

I'm glad you found another taste treat to enjoy.

I've never heard them called Irish eggs before. Where were they served that way?

I suspect I don't like COLD hard boiled eggs, but hot is ok. I love scrambled eggs.

They were appetizers at this local Irish pub: http://www.pignwhistleatthegrove.com/ I saw that, and said "Hey, aren't those the Scotch Eggs from the FOTW board?" So it's thanks to this board that I tried them.

Looks like an interesting place, Melissa. I assume they're a regular restaurant as well as doing all that catering?

Brican, I am not that fond of hard cooked/hard boiled eggs, I really prefer them about as your post shows them
How did you get them to that stage of doneness?
