An authentic Haggis recipe from BBC.CO.UK. My husband really enjoys good haggis now and then. I have tried it and it reminds me of a slightly spicy sausage.
So for all the haggis lovers out there, enjoy!

heart and lungs of one lamb
1 lb
lamb trimmings, fat and lean
2
onions, finely chopped
8 oz
oatmeal

How to Make Authentic Scottish Haggis

Step-by-Step

  • 1Wash the lungs, heart and liver (if using). Place in large pan of cold water with the meat trimmings and bring to the boil. Cook for about 2 hours.

    When cooked, strain off the stock and set the stock aside.

    Mince the lungs, heart and trimmings.

    Put the minced mixture in a bowl and add the finely chopped onions, oatmeal and seasoning. Mix well and add enough stock to moisten the mixture. It should have a soft crumbly consistency.

    Spoon the mixture into the sheep's stomach, so it's just over half full. Sew up the stomach with strong thread and prick a couple of times so it doesn't explode while cooking.

    Put the haggis in a pan of boiling water (enough to cover it) and cook for 3 hours without a lid. Keep adding more water to keep it covered.

    To serve, cut open the haggis and spoon out the filling. Serve with neeps (mashed swede or turnip) and tatties (mashed potatoes).
