Scotch woodcock

Quick Reference

Scotch woodcock is a savoury dish consisting of scrambled eggs on toast, enlivened with anchovies or anchovy paste. Invented by the Victorians (who were great fans of the savoury course), the first known recipe for it is given in Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management (1861). The name was inspired by Welsh rabbit.
