Burns' Night falls on the 25th of January each year and celebrates the great Scottish Poet Robert Burns. It's an important day in Scotland with Burns Suppers held in every town and city. I don't tend to go to Burns Suppers. Although they are fun and often involve a ceilidh, they are mostly meaty affairs, so not for us.
I like to make some Scottish dishes to celebrate the day. I make traditional dishes like tattie scones for breakfast, which we have with veggie sausages, fried potatoes and beans, a good hearty soup for lunch and a sumptuous cranachan for dessert. For the main course I like to play about with veggie haggis. Now don't get me wrong we do eat it plain with neeps and tatties, but I like to create new dishes with haggis. Pasties, samosas, shepherds pie or filo parcels. This year I decided to make veggie haggis scotch eggs, which I'll serve with spiced potato wedges, salad and some caramelised onion chutney. Oh they're good!
These are mildly spiced to suit my little boy, but feel free to up the spice and add some chilli if you like.
