here's the ingredients

Haggis is a traditional Scottish dish. Although there are many recipes, it is normally made with the following ingredients: sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock.
It's the lungs that put me off....must be awfully chewy! Never tried it actually, but used to love faggots.."Brains faggots in gravy"...nice.

Oh yeh I'd definitely be interested. Been a very long time since I turned my nose up at them. I think the name used to put me off more than anything (it was during my teen years afterall).

Just what meat is used in faggots? Can it be substituted if you'd prefer, and if so, what?

8oz liver (I used Lambs)
8oz minced beef
2 chopped onions
4oz breadcrumbs
1 egg
1 tsp. dried sage
2tsps. mixed herbs
Salt & pepper

Mix all ingredients together and shape into 12 balls.

The traditional way of cooking is to wrap each tightly in muslin, then place in boiling water, but as this is time consuming, I put them in the fridge for afew hours to chill first. Then I place them into boiling seasoned water for about 30/40minutes and use the water to make a thick gravy with bisto and beef oxo.

The other way to cook them is to pack them tightly in a roasting tin and dot with oil/fat and bake for about 45 minutes @ 180º and make the gravy from the juices in the roasting tin.

Bon appetite.
