Well what a great time was had this weekend. Me and ‘The Boy’ dived into the burns night traditions head first by consuming a whole haggis, some 16 year old Jura Single Malt and watching the epic film that is ‘Braveheart’. I was shocked to learn ‘The Boy’ had never seen Braveheart – whilst in the same sentence admitting he had never seen Gladiator. This had to be rectified immediately..
I think he has now seen the error of his ways..
As for the food, we wrapped said haggis in tinfoil, placed in a roasting tray filled with water, and baked at 180 (fan) for 1hr and 15 minutes…
and served with sausages, veg and 16yr old Jura.
This was also a great opportunity to use the Whisky stones we got for Christmas.
If you haven’t tried Haggis before – please do! It tastes amazing! Spicy and a gorgeous texture – yes, it has offal in it, but it tastes soo good! Honestly – I’m more worried about whats in the sausages!
It is traditionally served with Neeps ‘n’ Tatties and a Whisky sauce. I’m not particularly a fan of Whisky sauce, i quite like the texture as it is – it certainly wasn’t dry.
So if you didnt give it a go this year, please keep it in mind for next. In the mean time, give my favourite breakfast sandwich a go..
Black Pudding, White Pudding and Bacon – Pretty life changing!
