It's sausage. Or, maybe to be a bit more accurate, it's kinda like scrapple and sausage put together. We have it at the Games every year, though if I remember correctly, the lights (lungs) and a couple other items had to be brought in from Canada or procured from a friendly butcher here. Apparently it's illegal to sell some organ meats and well...ya need it in haggis. Ours comes out rather mild-flavored with the possible exception of the pepper.


That's a point -- the scottish stuff is much more robust, with all the various kinds of offal available for it. We can use liver and maybe ground heart, although I don't think kidney would taste right, but you can't get lungs and you usually can't get a stomach to boil it in either. But let's face it -- for people who hate liver or other organ meat, it's a tough sell no matter what. And a really bad batch would put you off forever.

I had the pleasure of trying haggis at the Highland games in July. Now how accurate it was, I have no clue. But I must tell you I LOVED it and thought it was really really good! I look forward to trying the *real* dish one day! wink.gif

Yes, I ordered it off the internet from britishfoods.com for last years Burns Day. I ate Haggis and drank single malt Scot Whisky (alone, since my wife was grossed out). I also had 'tatties and neeps as a side dish. She was good enough to prepare the side dish (from a recipe off the net) and the haggis was simple enough to steam by following the directions on the packaging.
I enjoyed it, but it was sooo expensive to order on the net due to the shipping costs that I won't do it again.
I may try some of the recipes you can find on the net and make my own next time.
Some of the 'mock" ones seem a little more civilized thumbs_up.gif

I've suddenly been taken with the wild idea to make one. Don't ask me why...now let's see how many teeth I have to pull to get all the ingredients.

You can't get a sheep stomach in America legally from a butcher, as far as I know. From a farmer who's been butchering, maybe. But just use a large intestinal beef casing, which a butcher will get for you with a bit of notice, or a sausage factory has them.

If you're drinking green beer with your haggis, you deserve whatever comes up after. puke.gif Erin go bluuuurrrgggaaaaahhhh!

I love to eat haggis. I have tried several different versions of it and each one is good in its own way. We have a Scottish resturant here in Indianapolis so I go there sometimes for haggis. I work near this resturant so sometimes I go and order just haggis and scottish eggs for lunch.
