Haggis Bake – The best way to eat haggis, neeps and tatties

Haggis, Neeps and Tatties in a Haggis Bake for an easy and tasty Burns Supper at home

Haggis, neeps and tatties needn’t only be for Burns Night.  However, if you are celebrating, this is an easy-to-make and very easy-to-eat dish perfect for the winter weather.

All you need is haggis, turnip (or swede), potatoes, spring onions (also known as scallions or green onions) and cream.  You can omit the spring onions if you wish, we liked the crispy and sweetness of the spring onions.  Serve this comforting haggis bake alongside a dram of whisky to celebrate the bard’s birthday.

This haggis bake is almost like a dauphinoise, except we have pre-cooked the potatoes and turnip so that it wouldn’t take forever in the oven and hard potatoes are not good.

Whatever you are eating to celebrate Burns Night (25th January) – cheers!
