Re: Burns Night!

Anyone tried haggis sliced and lightly fried?  Makes a nice accompaniment to bacon and eggs, or with squabble-n-beak.  The best haggis, needless to say, is directly from a well sourced butcher in Scotland.  We had one delivered, together with black puddiong (Scottish being the best) and hog's pudding.  All beautifully packed and can say, all delicious.

Re: Burns Night!

I would guess  a rhyming slang for bubble and squeak.

Re: Burns Night!

Now form an orderly queue please folks  lol :

koukouvagia - slang for Bubble and Squeak.  Do ask if you want to know about it.

mummza - Hog's pudding is what you might know as white pudding.

Ashen - you're absoliutely right.

Re: Burns Night!

I love white pudding. Never heard it called hog's pudding before. You learn a new thing every day!

Haggis sliced and fried is very good. Our butcher actually sells it by the slice rather than whole, not sure why. It also makes a great meatball, rolled ito balls and fried until heated through. Don't simmer them, they'll fall apart. Great with a spicy tomato sauce.

Mr. Hippytea suggested making haggis sausage rolls. Definitely going to try it. Again, would be fabulous with tomato dipping sauce.

It's pretty versatile stuff, really. Makes a good stuffing. In fact, I was thinking the other day about how I'd describe haggis to someone who's never tried it, and really, the texture is not unlike a breadcrumb-based stuffing. It's rich and spicy, so you have to watch it doesn't overpower the meat, but I've had haggis-stuffed chicken that worked well. Especially if served with a creamy sauce like whisky or peppercorn sauce.

Hippytea.  I think the term 'Hog's' pudding comes from Cornwall.

Re: Burns Night!

Most of you probably know of the lovely picnic pie, made from pastry filled with sausage meat, dips made in the meat to hold an egg? You could use haggis instead of sausage meat.  Hows about that then?

That's funny , Thisltedo , after reading about Mr.Hippytea suggesting 'sausage rolls ' made from Haggis , I automatically thought ..
" Wonder how it would do in a picnic pie ?"
I do not know if Haggis is eaten cold much or just eaten hot ?
Having never tasted it its a bit hard to work this out .

Does the left over Haggis ever get eaten cold ?
