Haggis

Does anyone know what this is? I apologize for not remembering but I am sure I saw it on here someplace. They were advertising on tv and it looked like some kind of lunchmeat. Could someone let me know. I believe they said it consisted of lamb and oatmeal? Thanks

I'll give you Connor McCleod's (from the Highlander movie) definition: "It's sheep's stomach, stuffed with meat and barley."

Since you're probably not going to make it I'll skip the recipe - it's basically lamb organ meats (heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, etc) mixed with suet, onion and oatmeal ... stuffed in the stomach of a lamb, and boiled for a couple of hours. The oatmeal works as a filler and it does produce a "sausage" kind of thing. My grandmother made it a couple of times I actually liked it! Of course - I was young and didn't know it should be "yuckey".

Go to www.google.com and do a search on haggis and you can find recipes.

Actually - it sounds much worse than it taste.

There was a long thread started by Lifter on the topic of haggis - here it is!

I eat haggis about once a fortnight during the winter - but never eat it from about May to October 8)

Thanks for responses. I knew there was a thread that I read before. Didn't realize how involved it is. Ishbel, you must know lot about your town in order to get that all together. I know my regular store wouldn't carry most of the stuff. It does sound unusual around here. What I like about this site is finding out different dishes. I am sorry I hardly have enough room to cook as it is (small small kitchen) I knew it when we bought the house but just figured better times were ahead. STill here. Think of me when you are enjoying your next meal of haggis. I bet it is good. Thanks again.

It's a Scottish dish and one quote about it in a movie goes like this:

"Do you like haggis?"

"No, I think it's repellent in every way. In fact, I think most Scottish cuisine is based on a dare."

Yes it is - I meant to credit Mike Myers for that gem.

It was a joke... about Haggis no less. Relax.

I spent a week in Edinburgh and I have to say it was one of my favorite trips of all time. The people there are possibly the most hospitable and nicest of any country I've visited.

Stayed here: (just outside of Edinburgh):

Yes and I am kicking myself to this day for not trying the Haggis.
