I thought things were getting a bit tense, so I present a simple and easy carnivore's delight of a dish.  If you're vegetarian or vegan, it may dismay you.  That's OK, someday, I'll write a vegetarian diary.  It's all good.

Today, I present my version of Scottish Eggs. I make dozens of these each spring for the OU Medieval Fair.

You start with eggs that are not too fresh but also not old. They should still sink in the float test. They need to be boiled.  Because I don't expect you to make dozens and dozens of these at once, I'll give directions for just 4. It's made with just 3 ingredients.

4 eggs
1 pound mixed bulk sausage - store bought or home made
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs - store bought or home made

Boil the eggs, rinse and peel them.

Boiled and Peeled Eggs

Mix up the bulk sausage and separate into 4 balls.

Mixed Bulk Sausage

Flatten each sausage ball and wrap each egg completely so that no bit of egg shows.

Covering Eggs in Sausage

I usually season the bread before chopping it into bread crumb sized pieces and drying it in a slow oven, but sometimes when I'm in a rush or run out of bread crumbs, I'll buy pre-seasoned stuffing mix - Pepperidge Farms Herbed Stuffing is my favorite to use.

Bread Crumbs for Scottish Eggs

Once each egg is completely encased in sausage, roll them, one at a time, in the bread crumbs/stuffing mix.  Make sure the sausage is fully coated.

Place the sausages on a foil lined baking sheet, one with low sides.

Eggs Waiting For Oven

Bake them at 375*F for 30 minutes.

If you feel that you haven't yet found the right words to ridicule Reince Priebus, user ozsea1 has fixed that for you.   In response, user Barcelona expat comes right back with verbal embroidery for 'Romney'.
From Dave in Northridge

From dwayne
The diary Obama just dubbed Romney's Tax Plan: ROMNEYHOOD! by Drdemocrat had a lot of great wisecracks and puns...but Calvino Partigiani came up with the topper.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
