Tattie and Neep Waffles with Haggis

It’s Burns Night, and with it comes a feast of Haggis, Neeps and Tatties in abundance, along with a wee dram or two. Every year we are always left with too much of all three, and end up eating them for about the next three meals and it gets a bit repetitive. Recently I became…

Scottish Oatcakes

Oatcakes are a staple in this house, they are a handy little biscuit to have lying around for lunches or snack emergencies. There are so many different flavours available in the supermarket these days, both sweet and savoury, but it’s always savoury for us! They are also incredibly simple to make – basically Oats and…

Caledonian Cream

A lesser known Scottish dessert is the Caledonian Cream, a tasty mix of cream cheese, cream and marmalade on a bed of boozy oranges. Cream and booze, really whats not to like? This is tasty alternative to Cranachan, the more common Scottish dessert. Marmalade would seem to be a weird choice to mix in a…

Haggis Burrito

Instead of another meal of Haggis, Neeps and Tatties, this Haggis Burrito gives a lighter, fresher alternative.  No real effort is required to make this, so is perfect for a quick post-work dinner or a lunch.  I did make my own Guacamole and Salsa, but you could easily just use shop bought Haggis Burrito (Makes…

Haggis Pakora

Burns’ Night always see a glut of Haggis in this house, partly because you can’t seem to get Haggis in a 2 person portion! To use up our excess I made some Pakora, which is great for a starter or to make loads for a meal.  This is a simple recipe, but it does use…

Scottish Tablet

This time of year sees typical Scottish recipes flood the internet, and I thought I would be no different and share with you a family recipe for the delicious sweet treat that is tablet.  I am sure most Scottish grannies have passed down their recipes to their children and grandchildren so not all recipes will…

Cranachan

No Burns Feast can be complete without Cranachan.  I made this using some raspberries I picked during the summer (and froze!) from Stuart’s Dad’s garden near Stirling, so these are truly Scottish Raspberries!  Cranachan requires whisky so a choice needs to be made about which one to use.  As with the Whisky Sauce, this is…

Burns Night Whisky Sauce

I hope everyone got into the swing of Rabbie Burns and feasted well on haggis and whisky! Whilst haggis is consumed in this household at any point in the year, Burns Night always sees us tucking into the full shebang of haggis, neeps and tatties (real for him, veggie for me!) and this year I…
