| O.K. O.K., it's not genuine
Scottish haggis. It's a ground beef meat loaf wrapped in bacon with a Scottish
National flag perched on top.
Real haggis consists of a sheep's stomach filled with ground lung, heart, liver, oatmeal and other stuff. It's pretty rough fodder. It is illegal to sell lungs or stomachs here in Canada because they have been known to carry various diseases; so I tried making a sort of "artificial haggis meat loaf" with ground lamb and liver. It wasn't any good either.
This is a fake haggis based on our favourite meat loaf receipt.
1 lb lean ground beef
This serves 3. Increase ingredients accordingly for a larger haggis.
|In large mixing bowl, combine all ingrediends
except ground beef and bacon. Mix in meat last. Form misture into a loaf
shape on a shallow baking pan. Wrap bacon around loaf, tucking in ends.
Bake at 350°F for an hour or so. This is good served with baked or mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables.
Haggis ready for oven.
| Here are two Scottish
flags to make your haggis official . . . your choice of a Scottish National
flag or a St. Andrew's flag .
First, save a flag to your desktop by right clicking and selecting "Save Image As . . ."; "Save Target As . . ." or whatever it is. Then print it out.
There are flags on the printer friendly page too; see below.
For a flag pole, I pasted the flag around a wood "kabob" thing. Any slender piece of wood or bit of wire would do.
