I haven’t had a chance to talk much about the Scottish cuisine here in Scotland. I’ve had various meals, from a Scottish breakfast to deep fried mini haggis for dinner.
I’ve had imitation haggis in the United States, but never real haggis due to the ban on it in the USA. The imitation haggis is not bad, but it has a horrible after taste. The real haggis here in Scotland is absolutely delicious!
For those that don’t know what haggis is, the Oxford dictionary defines it as, “a Scottish dish consisting of a sheep’s or calf’s offal mixed with suet, oatmeal, and seasoning and boiled in a bag, traditionally one made from the animal’s stomach.” They no longer use the sheep’s stomach to encase the meal. They now use a sausage-like skin to seal the meal.
I’m going to miss haggis when I leave Scotland, and I would like to see it made legal in the USA again, as it has been banned since the ’70s.
