In this blog post I am sharing two delicious family recipes using Scottish Haggis. While haggis might seem daunting to some, it’s actually a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes. We love experimenting with Haggis and using it in different ways. The kids love it and really enjoy it in different recipes.
We will be making a delicious Scottish Haggis layered pie with neeps and tatties and a lovely loaded roasted neeps and tatties dish with Scottish Haggis and various other toppings. Both are lovely to try on Burns Night or as we do you can enjoy them at any time of the year. Haggis is an affordable and traditional Scottish food product and is enjoyed by many in all its variations across Scotland.
You can also watch the full recipe video below for the delicious Scottish Haggis Pie and the Loaded Scottish Haggis dish.
Haggis, the national dish of Scotland, has been a beloved delicacy for centuries. Traditionally made with sheep’s heart, liver, and lungs, mixed with oats, onions, and spices, it may not be everyone’s cup of tea at first glance. However, these recipes will inspire you to try it in different ways and introduce you to using other flavours and ingredients with Scottish Haggis.
The first recipe is the lovely Scottish Haggis, Neeps (turnip) and Tatties (potatoes) pie. Its a simpled layered pastry pie with haggis, neeps and tatties layered up and topped with a sprinkle fo cheddar cheese. It’s really delicious and stores really well. You can freezer it for later or even serve it up cold for picnic food. I love it hot with freshly stir fried greens on the side.

The second recipe is the delicious loaded baked tatties and neeps. The tatties and neeps are baked in the oven with a little oil and seasonings until crispy and topped with the delicious Scottish Haggis, some chilli sauce, fresh herbs and melted cheese. Again this recipe is so simple and easy to throw together for the family and makes a delicious lunch or smaller main meal. Try serving it up with a fresh salad.

Tips for making this recipe …
The haggis pie is fairly easy to put together and if you want to you can swap up the layers for your preferred colour combo.
The pie is topped with grated cheddar cheese that melts on the top but it would be delicious with a lovely Scottish Whisky sauce or a wee bit creamy sauce or gravy of choice.
Leave the pie to cool slightly before it is sliced just to give it a chance to hold together better. I find its best when its warm rather than fresh out of the oven so that the layers hold well when serving.
You can also serve this pie up cold if you like as a picnic snack or lunch. Its delicious with a little salad on the side. Its not my favourite way of serving it but my son loves eating it this way.
The loaded neeps and tatties recipe is really easy and you can try serving it up with different toppings if you like too. Experiment and share your photos over on instagram with me.
