burns night meal

Hi!
im in korea and thought I would introduce my friends to some traditional scottish food so i've made haggis in preparation for Burns Night next friday. However I'd completely forgot about the skin casing and cant get hold of any!! - too much of a language barrier.

can anyone suggest how I could cook haggis mince? steam cook it in foil perhaps??

also tried and tested whiskey sauce recipes would be greatly appreciated.

skinless haggis

I'd cook it like a meatloaf and turn it out to serve.
Don't know about the whiskey sauce.

Haggis.

Well, for me, there is no way I'd ever eat I, but I did pick one up in the supermarket the other day to look at the ingredients.

It said it could be cooked in the microwave if you removed the metal clips and the casing, put it into a bowl and covered with cling film. The only thing I don't know is if maybe they have partially cooked it already? It was a McSweens one, or whatever the famous brand is called.

James, haggis

I'm sure he's made his own haggis ingredients and is just lacking the stomach/skin it's traditionally cooked in.

McSween's is generally uncooked - think it's the best haggis out there. If it were me, I'd go with the 'cook it like a meatloaf' suggestion above - can't see any reason why that wouldn't work. Enjoy!

Yes, I know that, Gerry, I was just repeating what was on the packaging of a shop one re microwaving.

Wonder if muslin could be used for this. It would have to be scorched first.

Sorry, James. Misunderstanding! XXX

No problem :)

I do think the meatloaf method would be better personally, but I didn't read the other cooking instructions on the pack, no idea why I read the microwave instructions either!

if i were you and if you are able to get hold of very good quality cling film not the really flimsy cheap stuff, i would use that......kind of make a short dumpy sausage shape with your filling and then roll several times in the cling film, keeping it rather plump and squat rather than long and skinny. and roll and twist the end of the cling film, then i would wrap again in tin foil, and boil in saucepan for about an hour and half (depending on size).

for the whisky sauce, if you google the hairy bikers - they have a really GOOD sauce, its via a bbc website.

thank you!

Thanks to all of you for you're help!! :)
My apartment doesn't have an oven or else I would definitely use your meatloaf method!
good quality cling film and kitchen foil it is then.

thanks again, and happy cooking!!

Hairy Biker's Whisky sauce

I can vouch for this, it's yummy although I admit to adding more whisky to mine!

Burns night meal


hello hlm.....

our of sheer nosiness, i am wondering how your haggis turned out and what your korean friends made of your burns night meal and truth be told - did they like it?.

after all it is an acquired taste that not many englanders like.
