Haggis Recipes

I couldn’t, in all honesty, call myself a Scotsman and not include a range of haggis recipes in a blog about food and eating habits from around the world.

There are many tales about the haggis. It is a very shy creature that lives a solitary life in the Scottish Highlands. It has two legs longer than the others, so it can easilly run around the mountain.

This rare titbit is toasted at Burns’ Suppers all around the world. Tae the great cheiftain o’ the pudding race.

While haggis is considered to be a Scottish delicacy. You will find it being savoured and enjoyed by all people from anywhere in the world

Without further ado, here is my selection of famous Scottish offal delicacies for you to ruminate over.

If you have no idea what haggis is made from, you are not alone. Suffice to say, if you dislike offal you should look elsewhere.

Simplified Haggis

This recipe uses simpler, more readily available ingredients but, it still retains the original flavour.

Haggis Pakora Recipe

Scotish and Indian food fusion may sound unlikely. But, it seems to work rather well in this haggis snack recipe.

Haggis Pakora

While it may not have used this recipe, I have eaten haggis pakora in a very fine restaurant and it was absolutely delicious.

Lamb and Haggis Meatballs

We appear to be staying with the Indian connection, with this meatball recipe. I should not be surprised, Indian food is some of the most flavoursome food and, often, the most healthy.

Lamb and Haggis Meatballs

These meatballs use a standard mix curry powder, rather than having to mix your own blend of herbs and spices.

Veggie haggis and tatties pasties

I am always in favour of time-saving recipes, and this recipe for haggis pasties uses shop-bought, ready to roll pastry for ease of use.

Veggie Haggis and tatties pasties

The key ingredient in these pasties is French mustard. Only, it seems, because Jacqueline has a passion for this wonderfully flavoured condiment.

Haggis cottage pie haggis recipes

A good substantial cottage pie is always a welcoming sight on a cold winter’s evening. Add to that, the spicy warmth of haggis and a nice tot of Scotch. Heaven!

Spicy Cottage Pie

With this super-tasty pie, you can celebrate Burn’s night in the comfort of your own home.

Vegetarian haggis recipe

I’m not at all sure that vegetarianism is rife in Scotland. Possibly, the younger generation is more health-conscious but, a core of the population still regard pie and chips as their staple.

However, while we have vegatarian dishes like this lentil and barley taste sensation, there is time enough for change.

Scottish savoury puffs

Jacqueline suggests these tasty snacks as a bonfire night treat. I must have had a deprived childhood. We had many bonfire night celebrations but, I don’t recall food, of any sort, playing a major part.

Scottish Savoury Puffs

These puff pastry parcels are stuffed with haggis, peas and sweetcorn with a touch of mustard. I don’t ever remember having sweetcorn, as a child. I told you I was deprived.

Haggis Bon Bons with a whisky sauce

Finally, I have saved the best for last. Of the recipes presented here, these haggis bon bons are my personal favourite.
