Oh yes another Haggis dish, using up my leftovers, so tonight’s dinner is………………Haggis Toast! Yum! Quick, Tasty, filling and healthy.
2 slices of bread toasted to your liking. I like mine medium toasted!
Haggis leftovers cooked as per instructions and mixed with Beetroot Relish from http://www.everythingchilli.co.uk/, her relishes are so tasty.
Steam some spinach and lay on toast then top with haggis mix. Yummy!
The great thing about Haggis is, it is already spiced and peppered so no other seasonings are needed.
Using up my leftover Haggis from yesterday, I decided on a wee breakfast treat this morning and not only did it taste amazing it also set me up for the day and kept me full for ages.
For those of you that don’t know what Haggis is, it is a traditional Scottish Dish simply containing sheep’s pluck, minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, traditionally encased in the animal’s stomach. Haggis is basically like an oaty, spicy mince and a great source of iron, fibre and carbohydrate with no artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives. Each haggis maker will have a slightly different recipe, Scott’s from Huntly is my favourite one though.
2 eggs – beaten
100 g Haggis http://www.craftbutchers.co.uk/butchers/index.php?ID=8&town=HUNTLY&county=Aberdeenshire®ion=scotland
2 tbsp Beetroot Relish from Everything Chilli. http://www.everythingchilli.co.uk/
Tomatoes to serve (optional)
- Beat eggs together and preheat a pan to medium to high heat, cook until just nearly ready.
- Cook haggis in a microwave per instructions (normally for 100g about 1m 30 secs on high)
- Mix the Beetroot Relish through the haggis, set aside
- Steam the spinach
- Place the spinach onto the omelette and top with the haggis mix, fold the omelette over and cook for a further 2 mins. Serve. Yummy!
Looking for something different to do with haggis and having some Chilli relish in the cupboard with thanks to Lynn from Everything Chilli http://www.everythingchilli.co.uk/ and my local Food Assembly, I came up with this perfect match.
Haggis – 100g – I used Scott’s of Huntly (really tasty Haggis)
2 tbsp of Beetroot and Apple Chilli Relish
Assorted Vegetables to serve
1 Pepper (Colour of your choice)
- Firstly pre-heat your grill to high and slice in half the pepper then chargrill the peppers until slightly browned.
- Using a microwave on high level cook the haggis for approx 2 mins per 100g.
- Mash up and stir in the relish until mixed through.
- Remove the peppers and spoon the haggis mixture into pepper boats……..Serve! Yummy!
