Haggis Brunch with Sauté Potatoes

Haggis Brunch with Sauté PotatoesI love haggis.  Sadly my children are not so keen.  Between New Year and mid March I constantly try to surreptitiously include it in our meals.  Without much success.

This haggis brunch was one such attempt.  Do not believe my children – the combination is delicious.

Ingredients (per person):

  • 125g Cooked boiled (ideally left over) potatoes
  • 125g Haggis (Macsweens)
  • Fried or poached egg  (The runnier the better)
  • Handful of salad leaves
  • knob of butter for frying
  • Salt and pepper seasoning

Obviously quantities are for a guide only – go with what you have.

1.  First slice your cooked potatoes, to about 1 cm deep.  I was being a bit sad when I made this, and cut them into heart shapes.  Its a bit of a weakness of mine.  Sorry!  Season the potatoes to taste, bearing in mind that the haggis has a fairly high salt and pepper content.

Note:  The lovely people at MacSweens have recently changed their packaging, so that the haggis is shaped more like a black pudding (blood sausage). This makes it very easy to slice into portions, and freeze.recipes for haggis3.  Fry your egg in same pan as your potatoes, and place over the haggis and potatoes.
