Two Scottish Recipes Inspired by Brave

€œBRAVE (L-R) MERIDA amongst the triplets: HARRIS, HUBERT and HAMISH; KING FERGUS and QUEEN ELINOR. ©2012 Disney/Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

Brave the movie comes out this week and Disney Studios sent me these two recipes inspired by the movie. I wanted to share them because animated movie-inspired food is a great way for kids to try something new. Now you too can organize a Brave-inspired menu – cold showers optional but bagpipes background music encouraged.

Scotch Egg Recipe (Serves Four)

John Ricks – Pixar Animation Studios, Luxo Cafe


  • 4 farm eggs, hard boiled, chilled and shelled
  • 8 oz bulk pork sausage, best quality (turkey sausage can be substituted)
  • 1 raw egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • oil for frying
  • salt & fresh herbs


  • Set up a breading station using separate bowls for 1. Seasoned flour (1/2 cup flour, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper), 2. Egg wash (beat together raw egg & milk), 3. Panko bread crumbs (with minced fresh parsley, chives, chervil, thyme, optional)
  • Portion sausage into four equal balls.
  • Flatten sausage into a thin disc using the palm of your hand.
  • Encase the hard boiled egg evenly in sausage meat, and crimp it closed thoroughly.
  • Coat with flour then egg wash and finally bread crumbs. Note: Breaded eggs can be refrigerated overnight for convenience.
  • Preheat oil to 350F and cook for 5 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Drain on paper towel and lightly season with salt while still hot.
  • Serve warm or room temp, with your favorite mustard!

  • 10 oz stock (chicken or vegetable)
  • 12 oz smoked Haddock
  • 10 fluid oz milk

For the record and in case you wonder why Disney/Pixar has become an authority on Scottish food: I did check the recipes section of and yes, both Scotch Egg and Cullen Skink are the real Scottish thing.
