Scotch Egg

Scotch eggs are native to Britain, and have been eaten there since the mid-1700s, possibly even earlier. Basically, a hardboiled egg is shelled, then wrapped in sausage meat, coated in breadcrumbs, and either fried or baked until golden brown and warm throughout.

These are incredibly rich in protein and easy to carry, which makes them the perfect on-the-go snack. They can be dressed up with various additions, and served with dipping sauces like ranch dressing or mustard.

Shakshuka

Shakshuka is a popular dish throughout the Middle East and parts of North Africa. It is believed to have been invented in Tunisia. Shakshuka is basically eggs poached in a stew made of tomatoes, chili, and onion, which is then flavored with cumin. Typically, it is served in a cast iron pan – or a tajine – along with bread to mop up the excess sauce.

While this can be a spicy dish to serve for breakfast, it definitely wakes you up, and fills you for your day ahead. There’s even a restaurant in Israel called Dr. Shakshuka, which is rumored to serve some of the best in the region.

Migas

Migas was originally a dish from Portugal and Spain that involved leftover bread fried with vegetables and meat. However, the migas that we’re going to talk about today are a distant descendant of that dish.

The Mexican version of migas uses tortillas instead of bread, and eggs instead of meat. The result is a concoction that makes use of all of your leftovers, and tastes amazing too. Often, migas are served with salsa, or refried beans on the side.
