It varies a lot depending on who makes it. It needs to be hot (not lukewarm), not too fatty (but not too dry), and it needs lots of pepper. It also helps considerably if it's highland-ish outside, weatherwise -- dank cold, mizzling rain, heavy fog, seawind. Nothing makes the haggis taste better than that, except maybe the shot of single malt that goes with it.

How appropriate that you started this poll on my birthday wink.gif I LOVE haggis ... it's soooo yummy. If we have a chip shop meal I always go for a haggis supper (deep fried haggis in batter) ... my preferred option is the spicy haggis smile.gif

Deep fried haggis in batter? Spicy? At a chip shop? smile.gif I like the sound of this.
Got a recipe? How about putting it over in the recipes thread under Scottish recipes?

I'm not sure what the recipe is for this ... I can get the recipe from a Scottish prize winning butcher though for haggis itself lol

I'll find out some of the more sucessful things I've tried and put the recipes up for you smile.gif

Ok, let's see who has tried everyone's favorite Scottish dish. Or if you have not tried it, do you plan on having a little taste of the haggis? thumbsup.gif

biggrin.gif

The real question should be, Do You Like Haggis?

I like it on special occasions. And yes, it depends on who makes it.

I was out with a group of folks after our St. Andrew's Day service at church on Sunday and we all enjoyed haggis at our local celtic restaurant. Well, at least the guys enjoyed it.

I have tried it and having grown up around the butcher business in the early 40's it was not bad.

I have ate haggis several times and I found the best way to eat it is to cut the haggis in small pieces, dip it in the mashed potatoes and swirl it in gravy. Then it is edible

Dad was a frugal man who wasted nothing. In our refrigerator we had Scrapple, Souse, Head Cheese, Blood Pudding, Liver Pudding, Pickled Tripe, Pigs Feet and Tails." We ate baked heart, Liver, Ox Tail Stew, Sweet Breads (Glands in a beef's neck) and brains along with the better cuts. Haggis was just a small step further. I had already eaten everything in it but lungs and kidneys. The flavor is bland to my taste. If reading the cooking instructions turns your stomach, you will never get a bite down. I found that a Lamb loin can be used in lieu of the lungs, kidneys and heart but it seems to need the chopped liver. You can even make it in a pan and bake it if the Paunch does not appeal to you. I have never experimented with seasonings but one could do that too. My Brother used to supply the sheep parts for me but thanks to the Govt. he sold the sheep or gave them away.

I guess first eating it as a child was the best way to start.

Since it is just me now, cooking has become a waste of time.

I hope someone gets an idea here and tries it.
