A Scrummy British Breakfast Egg” on the theme of a scotch egg.


Rationale – a whole breakfast in one – its hand held and convenient to eat on the go, so really on trend as a consumer need now. No packaging or waste as the packaging is actually edible (Breadcrumb) so good environmental message.

It could be developed as a range to include baked beans & tomato in the sausage or crumb etc
