Haggis Recipes are traditionally made from beef or mutton. Haggis is an old Irish word which literally means dried meat. Haggis was the first food to be created in Ireland since the Neolithic period, roughly 5000 years ago. The word “haggis” means bay and the dish gained its name because of the shape it takes when it is cooked. The ingredients used in Haggis recipes are dried meat, onions, raisins, and dates. Haggis recipes can be served as a breakfast food, a snack food, a starter for a meal, or as an appetizer.
The preparation of Haggis recipes involves three steps: frying, baking, and smoking. The frying process is usually done in a frying pan over a fire, which brings out the natural enzymes of the meat. The onions, raisins, and dates are added to the fire and slowly cooked until they are almost burning. A piece of flat cut of meat of the same weight is placed inside the frying pan, with the top end sticking out. The onions, raisins, and dates cook thoroughly on the top side of the meat. This is then covered with a piece of raw haggis casing to seal in the juices, and cooked in the oven until the outside begins to crisp.
Haggis recipes can be served as hot or cold dishes depending on personal preference. For example, to serve Haggis in a tea, it is wrapped in a piece of oatmeal bread with raisins and a brown says “ayg”. To serve Haggis in an apple pie, it is wrapped with apple pie crumbs and a brown says “alors”. Most vegetarian haggis recipes consist of stewing vegetables along with raisins, dates, and brown says “alors”. Vegetarian Haggis recipes are most commonly browned and spiced.
There are many ways that haggis is cooked. It can be served just as it comes out of the pan, or prepared in many different ways. Traditionally, Scottish cooks used a small frying pan to cook their haggis, which contained onion, carrots, a few potatoes and spices such as cardamom and nutmeg. The fat from the meat was rendered and this gave the mixture a salty taste.
