Lol

fresh blood?

Good stuff

Haggis is excellent with chicken and mashed swede and carrot.

Or even a slice or two as part of a full English.

I love this but have no idea how you cook it.

As said just simply boil it, treat the same as boil in the bag rice.

Its not the best haggis (had some of this over Christmas) but good for a Haggis Lasagne. Yum

Wrong. The stuff itself

The very idea of vegetarian "haggis" is offensive.

Haggis - The leftover crap that even McDonald's didn't want lol

Only messing

My wife won't eat the real stuff.

As above, cooked breakfast, boil a vege haggis, cut some off, put it in the pan and serve it. Gorgeous.

Waitrose will indulge you - at just £3.55/500g, ie without the lamb lungs & beef fat.

Waitrose does the Macsween veggie haggis and it's very nice, though pricey.

Lol silly, use a gun, trying to catch it is so last century!

I'd just like to say...

Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o the puddin'-race!
Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye worthy o' a grace
As lang's my arm.

The groaning trencher there ye fill,
Your hurdies like a distant hill,
Your pin wad help to mend a mill
In time o need,
While thro your pores the dews distil
Like amber bead.

His knife see rustic Labour dight,
An cut you up wi ready slight,
Trenching your gushing entrails bright,
Like onie ditch;
And then, O what a glorious sight,
Warm-reekin, rich!

Then, horn for horn, they stretch an strive:
Deil tak the hindmost, on they drive,
Till a' their weel-swall'd kytes belyve
Are bent like drums;
The auld Guidman, maist like to rive,
'Bethankit' hums.

Is there that owre his French ragout,
Or olio that wad staw a sow,
Or fricassee wad mak her spew
Wi perfect scunner,
Looks down wi sneering, scornfu view
On sic a dinner?

Poor devil! see him owre his trash,
As feckless as a wither'd rash,
His spindle shank a guid whip-lash,
His nieve a nit;
Thro bloody flood or field to dash,
O how unfit!

But mark the Rustic, haggis-fed,
The trembling earth resounds his tread,
Clap in his walie nieve a blade,
He'll make it whissle;
An legs an arms, an heads will sned,
Like taps o thrissle.

Ye Pow'rs, wha mak mankind your care,
And dish them out their bill o fare,
Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware
That jaups in luggies:
But, if ye wish her gratefu prayer,
Gie her a Haggis

Does this come with a free can of Irn Bru?

I popped that into a Scottish to English translator and it still didn't have a clue. lol

Veggie haggis is grand with chips and brown sauce. Don't knock it until you've tried it!

It's pretty idiosyncratic, I agree

Fair and full is your honest, jolly face,
Great chieftain of the sausage race!
Above them all you take your place,
Stomach, tripe, or intestines:
Well are you worthy of a grace
As long as my arm.

The groaning trencher there you fill,
Your buttocks like a distant hill,
Your pin would help to mend a mill
In time of need,
While through your pores the dews distill
Like amber bead.

His knife see rustic Labour wipe,
And cut you up with ready slight,
Trenching your gushing entrails bright,
Like any ditch;
And then, O what a glorious sight,
Warm steaming, rich!

Then spoon for spoon, the stretch and strive:
Devil take the hindmost, on they drive,
Till all their well swollen bellies by-and-by
Are bent like drums;
Then old head of the table, most like to burst,
'The grace!' hums.

Is there that over his French ragout,
Or olio that would sicken a sow,
Or fricassee would make her vomit
With perfect disgust,
Looks down with sneering, scornful view
On such a dinner?

Poor devil! see him over his trash,
As feeble as a withered rush,
His thin legs a good whip-lash,
His fist a nut;
Through bloody flood or field to dash,
O how unfit.

But mark the Rustic, haggis-fed,
The trembling earth resounds his tread,
Clap in his ample fist a blade,
He'll make it whistle;
And legs, and arms, and heads will cut off
Like the heads of thistles.

You powers, who make mankind your care,
And dish them out their bill of fare,
Old Scotland wants no watery stuff,
That splashes in small wooden dishes;
But if you wish her grateful prayer,
Give her [Scotland] a Haggis!


RE: veggie Haggis...not a match for the real stuff, but really not bad at all, quite like it now.

Halal?

I use thighs, de-boned but skin on. I then crumble black pudding and push it under the skin before wrapping it in smoked streaky, served with a whiskey sauce.

M&S Have some in. Was hoping they'd do the haggis with lambs guts in again but its just pig

Congealed blood, that is gross. Like eating fried pig scabs

Pig scabs..... mmmmmm .... Pork scratching scratching. Sounds great to me!

Looks like something i curled out earlier

Thats black pudding, this is simply minced pig* with pearl barley and spices.

* pig internals that is, the lamb ones are nicer and i assume more traditional?

No, mutton, not lamb, is traditional.

Don't knock Black pudding, which you are mistakenly referring to, until you've tried it. I know plenty of people who stupidly just can't bring themselves, but don't know what they're missing. Decent ones even smell nice raw funnily enough!
