The art of the perfect scotch egg.

scotch egg ireland mckees

McKee’s have been creating award winning scotch eggs for decades, with the help of our very own dedicated scotch egg team, working around the clock to produce the nations favourite scotch egg.

Our Scotch egg needs no introduction, they are renowned for their unique taste. The demand for the product is so high that we have six full-time staff at our Maghera factory to provide for our ever growing customers! We literally sell thousands every day!

What’s the big secret?…

We’ll we won’t say too much… but firstly our staff are incredible. Production, we begin by sourcing all our eggs pre-boiled & shelled, from local free range farmers, with deliveries daily (maybe even twice a day!) to our factory in Maghera, ready for our team to begin the process.

Here’s our dedicated “Scotch Egg Team”.

Our “Scotch Egg Team”, then get to work, covering the eggs in our delicious sausage meat, then continue to roll these into perfectly sized balls, there’s an art in that too!

There’s a secret in the sizing…

Once smoothed, covered and sized, they are dipped into egg batter, (along with a few other little ingredients!) and finally passed on to to be covered in our breadcrumbs, this process is done not once but twice.

Not once…but twice!

Lastly they are deep fried (in the best way possible!) and are ready to be cooled and served…

Our award winning Scotch Eggs.

Have you tried them before?…. Well you most definitely should, you can add scotch eggs to your order today.

Speciality pies

Another award winning product from McKee’s is their speciality pies, with no sales person in site, Mr McKee himself went to the local shops and let the pies speak for themselves. They are now sold in Spars stores all around Northern Ireland, however, he insists they are delivered directly to the shops. Mr McKee feels the personal touch of the company has brought them to where they are now.

Alongside Beacon13 – Digital Media, they have finally achieved it. They realise that a website can generate new business, promote goodwill among customers and prospects, and deliver strong marketing messages to all our customers throughout North West & Mid Ulster.
