Ways to Prepare Haggis:


Haggis is the staple ingredient of a Burns Night supper, when Scots the world over come together to commemorate the life of the Scottish bard Robert Burns with an evening of poetry, haggis and whisky. Although haggis may seem difficult to prepare it is surprisingly simple as long as you keep the outer casing on!


Here we share some different methods of preparing haggis:


In the Oven: Heat your oven to 180°C. Wrap your haggis in tin foil to make sure it is moist and place in a casserole dish. Add a little hot water to the tray and pop in the oven for approximately one hour.
