There is a British food called Grosvenor Pie, which is a pork
pie with a hard-boiled egg in the middle. For catering uses,
they make extra-long ones (more than a foot long) designed
to be sliced. In the middle of each slice of pie there is a
slice of hard-boiled egg, with the yolk concentric with the
white, with every slice having the same cross-section. "Long
egg" is what makes this possible - firms that make Grosvenor
pies can buy or make tubular hard-boiled eggs. I presume they
are made by some simultaneous extrusion/cooking process but
I've no idea what it is. (One possibility that comes to mind
is enclosing the yolk in an extra-long biodegradable condom
before hard-boiling the whole thing).

I have sometimes wondered if this product was the inspiration
for the eternal chicken in Pohl and Kornbluth's dystopia "The
Space Merchants".

I have once heard that the British egg industry briefly produced
cubical eggs in the Fifties to save on packaging. Since they
could only come hard-boiled they had limited usefulness.

But - how do they do it? When is Innovations going to start
listing a Home Long Egg Maker?

I was disappointed to see how short those on the website were.
I was expecting something like a drum from a cable-laying ship
with kilometres of long egg wound round it.

I find it sad that the long egg has modified food starch in it, suggesting
that some with severe gluten allergies would not be able to eat it.

They wouldn't be able to eat the pork pies anyway...

The BEST long pork pies are made with ordinary fresh hard boiled eggs.
Part of the fun is to argue over who got more egg in their slice...
They call them Gala pies up along the East Coast.
