Scotch Quail Eggs with Dijon Mustard

These are a twist on your usual Scotch Eggs but are equally delicious. Yolky and rich quail eggs are encased in juicy pork sausage mince. We could polish these in one sitting; the fact that they’re bite-sized makes it easy. Quail eggs are costly, so opt for regular eggs if needed.

Another classic British recipe with a twist. Some might not agree with swapping out the chips for beer-battered onion rings – then again, what’s more British than beer? This flavourful, crusted hake fillet is grilled to perfection and served on a bed of mushy peas.

Roasted Red Pepper & Goat’s Cheese Quiche

Perhaps not the most classic British dish, but we had to include this one after the King’s team announced quiche is his coveted selection – he apparently loves anything with cheese and egg. A fitting selection to Queen Elizabeth II’s iconic coronation chicken.

Drizzle with good ‘ol gravy and savour every bite!
