    Haggis, neeps (swede) and tatties. I need to glam it up a bit. Was thinking about maybe a whisky sauce to go with it but does anyone have any other suggestions?

    chicken breast stuffed with haggis covered in whiskey sauce, is lovely.
     
  3. Just pour the malt whisky over the haggis. Don't bother with the rest of the 'sauce' :biggrin:

    I'd just drink the whisky meself, and not wreck it with the haggis. Or the neeps, for that matter

    I'd do some fruity chutney relish, tart and sweet, to cut the fat and oats of the haggis.

    A quality gravy lifts every appropriate meal onto a higher level - including haggis of course.

    LOL!
    :blush:


    Yeah, I'd say it would make a good stuffing. Or how about some egg to bind it into patties, fry, and serve in a bun? *Arch not conpletely sure about this one, having never had leftover haggis, but thinks it might be worth a try?*

    Just make a nice big indentation in the neeps with the back of a table spoon and fill the 'crater' with Whiskey. No other sauce required!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Better off with the whisky IMHO.
    And hallucinogenics.
    Or just an Indian takeaway and feed the haggis to the dog (if you don't like dogs!)

    *doesn't like haggis at all*
     
  12. I'm with the Doctor. Don't put quality whisky anywhere near a saucepan. A blend, on the other hand ...
    I'd say a whisky sauce would be too sweet to go with haggis. I'd go with Redcogs and just serve it up with gravy. Maybe with a green veg on the side, something like steamed cabbage.
    It's a tricky one to tart up, because it's so nice as it is.

    Gravy all the way, baby.

    A knob of melted butter.

    The best addition to haggis is more haggis.

    You could try a Flying Scotsman - a haggis-stuffed chicken breast (or whole chicken? Mmmm, nom nom nom!

    You could make little wee kilts and tam o'shanters for the haggis if you felt like it maybe?
     
  15. Yes, plenty of butter in the mash. Ginger in the swedes and pepper in the spuds works well too.
