The picnics I remember were the one’s my mother put together for eating on the side of the road on our trips to the Transkei, South Africa back in the sixties. It was close to an 8 hour trip and we would stop around noon for cold chicken, “Perks” steak pies, pasta salad and Scotch eggs washed down with home made lemonade. The Scotch eggs were my favorite….
As many hard boiled eggs as there are people. Wrap each egg in home made sausage meat, then roll in breadcrumbs and fry in about 1/2 inch of vegetable or olive oil until golden brown all over and sausage meat cooked through. Drain on paper towels. Split in half to serve at room temperature, with salt & pepper and HP sauce for dipping.
