Haggis - a versatile ingredient

Haggis - a versatile ingredient
By Monica

Haggis is well known for being Scotland's national dish. It is most commonly eaten on Burns Night which is celebrated on the 25th of January to remember the Scottish writer - Robert Burns. However, over the years in Scotland, haggis has been incorporated into other iconic dishes and cuisines and you know what? It works!

Here are some of those dishes:

Burritos

That Mexican tortilla wrap has all the staples of rice, beans, salsa and of course some haggis as your main filling! Add the extra guac and you'll see the infusion of flavours work really well.

Nachos

Burritos are not the only Mexican dish which can contain haggis as a filling. Haggis is used as a topping on nachos as beef chilli would usually be.

Crisps

Crisps (or chips if you're American) come in so many flavours so is it really a surprise that there are now haggis flavoured crisps? Produced by a Scottish company it's only fitting that one of their flavours is "Haggis & cracked black pepper".

Pulled Pork Sandwich

A stuffing is a great addition to a pulled pork sandwich and in Scotland you can choose haggis instead. This is a great alternative to the classic sage and onion stuffing. It carries a similar texture and consistency, so why not?

Pizza

Nowadays, you can pretty much get anything as a topping on your pizza, so why not haggis?
