Haggis Scotch Eggs

20190125_183847

Its Burns Night tonight (25th January)……..Happy Burns Night Everyone!

To help celebrate we definitely had to have our haggis, neeps (turnip) & tatties (potatoes) dish. However, I fancied doing something different. I have never tried a Scotch egg before so this was what I set out to do. OMG! these were absolutely delicious and very easy to make.

 

Makes 4

300g Haggis (Good Quality one)

240g Pork Meat

1/2 bunch chopped chives

Sea Salt & black cracked pepper

5 Large eggs – (1 for the dipping)

1/2 cup flour

60g fine breadcrumbs

60g oatmeal (you can blitz scotts porridge oats into fine crumbs for this)

 

 

  1. Boil the eggs in a pan for about 6 minutes, then remove and place in an iced water bowl to stop the cooking process. When ready to use, peel shell.
  2. Mix together the Haggis, Pork Meat, Chives & salt & pepper in a bowl until combined.                                                                                                  20190125_165750
  3. Get ready your little production line of whisked egg, flour and breadcrumbs/oatmeal mix.                                                                            20190125_170712  20190125_170654
  4. Take a handful of the haggis mixture and mould into your hand like a cup and place 1 egg on top, take another handful of haggis and mould around the egg, doing this very carefully of course. You can use your thumb to help smooth the mixture over the egg.                                                                                                      20190125_171336
  5. Then place firstly into the flour, then the egg, then the crumb mixture.                    20190125_172426
  6. When ready to cook, heat a pan of oil to around 170 deg. Cook for about 7 minutes until golden brown. Remove and pat excess oil off with a tissue.
  7. Serve with neeps & tatties. Or whatever you like. A nice creamy whiskey sauce goes very well with this too. Find a recipe here:- Haggis Sauce

Black Pudding, Haggis & Apple pastry Rolls

20170910_134208

Inspired by Scottish Foods and a visit to a food festival recently I decided to try these little rolls myself.  So yummy!

 

Makes about 10 mini rolls

200g Stornoway Black Pudding

200g Haggis

2 x Granny Smith apples

1 shop bought ready rolled puff pastry (saves so much time)

Tomato or Brown sauce (whichever is your preference)

1 egg for wash

Salt & pepper to taste

 

  1. Cook the black pudding and haggis as per instructions, about 4 minutes on each side.                                                                                                  20170910_120656
  2. Meanwhile peel off skin from apple and core, chop into small chunks. Caramelise the apple in a fry pan for about 15-20 mins.            20170910_121201
  3. Roll out pastry and cut length ways once
  4. Once haggis and pudding are cooked, place in a bowl and mash up with apple and seasoning                                                                         20170910_121957_001
  5. Spread the pastry with your choice of sauce about 3 tbsp each length then fill the centre of each length with the pudding mixture                                                  20170910_122554
  6. Brush the egg wash around the edges of the pastry then roll up the pastry and seal the edges. Use a knife of fork to seal gently.                                                  20170910_123713
  7. You can now cut into the size you desire                                                                   20170910_124019
  8. I used my magic little Crisper plate to bake these but you can of course bake in a preheat oven of 190 deg for about 20 minutes. Using the crisper, preheat for 2 minutes on dynamic crisp setting. Bake on crisper for 8 minutes.
  9. Serve….yummy!

Haggis Toast

20160606_183318

Oh yes another Haggis dish, using up my leftovers, so tonight’s dinner is………………Haggis Toast! Yum! Quick, Tasty, filling and healthy.

 

2 slices of bread toasted to your liking. I like mine medium toasted!

Haggis leftovers cooked as per instructions and mixed with Beetroot Relish from http://www.everythingchilli.co.uk/, her relishes are so tasty.

Steam some spinach and lay on toast then top with haggis mix. Yummy!

 

The great thing about Haggis is, it is already spiced and peppered so no other seasonings are needed.

Haggis Omelette

20160606_134314

Using up my leftover Haggis from yesterday, I decided on a wee breakfast treat this morning and not only did it taste amazing it also set me up for the day and kept me full for ages.

For those of you that don’t know what Haggis is, it is a traditional Scottish Dish simply containing sheep’s pluck, minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, traditionally encased in the animal’s stomach. Haggis is basically like an oaty, spicy mince and a great source of iron, fibre and carbohydrate with no artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives. Each haggis maker will have a slightly different recipe, Scott’s from Huntly is my favourite one though. 

 

Makes 1

2 eggs – beaten

100 g Haggis http://www.craftbutchers.co.uk/butchers/index.php?ID=8&town=HUNTLY&county=Aberdeenshire&region=scotland

Handful Spinach

2 tbsp Beetroot Relish from Everything Chilli. http://www.everythingchilli.co.uk/

Tomatoes to serve (optional)

 

  1. Beat eggs together and preheat a pan to medium to high heat, cook until just nearly ready.
  2. Cook haggis in a microwave per instructions (normally for 100g about 1m 30 secs on high)
  3. Mix the Beetroot Relish through the haggis, set aside
  4. Steam the spinach
  5. Place the spinach onto the omelette and top with the haggis mix, fold the omelette over and cook for a further 2 mins. Serve. Yummy!
