A good friend recently asked me if I could put together a few ideas for finger foods that she could easily serve up to guests, but men in particular, as she lives with a few hockey/football loving males who spend a lot of time glued to their TV sets in the early fall watching Sunday sports. Boy, can I relate. Fortunately, around the same time, Canadian Beef asked me to put together a blog post, as part of their blogger program, and my challenge was to create a dish that combined beef and eggs.
Fortunately, I had feeding boys on the brain, and I don't know many who would turn their noses up to beef or eggs, but what about the two combined? It seemed almost too easy to make a burger topped with a fried egg, or a stir-fry that made use of a steak and egg combination, but Scotch eggs fit the bill on all fronts. I could swap the traditional sausage meat for Canadian ground beef, and my girlfriend would get her meaty man-food.
