Burns Night is the perfect excuse to introduce some less than willing southerners to this Scottish delight. I find with fussy eaters that the best way to treat them is in just the same way you would small bratty children. Make them think they’re in control.
These haggis cakes make people feel safe, they’ve seen things like this before, they know what’s going on here. Is this, like, bubble and squeak? Sure yep uh huh.
Don’t tell them they are after eating offal till their finished and there’s nothing they can do about it. Immoral perhaps but can you cant compete with enriching people’s lives by broadening their palette- it’s an act of selflessness that Robert Burns himself would be proud of.
This is also a delightful cure to a whiskey induced hangover on this grey Burns Boxing Day.
Simply mix the leftover haggis, neeps and tatties. Shape into little cakes, dip in egg. Coat in breadcrumbs and fry for 5 minutes-ish on each side, on a medium heat. Serve up with a soft poached egg and finely cut spring onion.
