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!
