With Burns Night on the way, Scottish food blogger Jac has a great Scottish canapé to befit the occasion. Try making these dinky Veggie Haggis and Wholegrain Mustard bites.
It’s party season!
Time for us to don our glad rags and venture out into the dark winter night. To glittering parties where the finest champagne and nibbles are served to the beat of toe-tapping music.
I shall be making Balsamic Tomato & Pesto Canapés
, stuffing figs with dolcelatte, then drizzling them with honey, baking baby potatoes until they are crisp and fluffy and filling them with sour cream and chives.
Of course being a Scottish lass, I’ll be celebrating Burns Night, so there has to be a Scottish canapé to befit the occasion. So I’ll be adding these dinky Veggie Haggis and Wholegrain Mustard bites to the table. Then I shall finish the whole lot off with some delicious Cranachan
. Don’t know what that is?
It’s a traditional Scottish dessert of thickly whipped cream mixed with whisky, honey and toasted oats alongside some Scottish raspberries. It’s braw!

3. Dust your work surface and rolling pin with flour.
4. Roll out half your pastry into a long rectangle. You want it to be fairly thin.

I've loved the rich spicy texture of haggis since my first bite in Edinburgh! I recommend it to anyone who wants a meaty dish with some kick to it!!

These look the busines! I always buy the veggie version of haggis, I think it's much nicer than the meat one even though I'm not veggie.
