This is generally referred to as a Scotch Egg

I make them occasionally. I like them. I've never heard them, called Irish eggs, though. Only Scotch eggs. But considering who's Irish around here ... .

The difference is you eat a Scotch Egg with a shot of Jamison's and you eat an Irish Egg with a pint of Guiness. Same egg!

It's Jameson and since that's an Irish whiskey, that wouldn't make sense.

Guess you can tell I'm not a Scotch Drinker so make it a Glenlivet! Or one of these:

I prefer a Scotch-Irish egg. A Scotch egg washed down with a pint of draught Guinness.

I always called them dinosaur eggs.
