Sausage & Haggis Recipes
You will need:
- 200g rooster potatoes, peeled and cut into even-sized pieces
- 3 tbsp warm milk or cream
- 40g unsalted butter
- sea salt and freshly ground black pepper Buy Now
- 1 Nick Nairn haggis, cooked according to the pack instructions Buy Now
- 800g turnip, peeled and cut into even-sized pieces (by the time it’s mashed this reduces down to about 400g)
For the gravy
- 100ml chicken stock
- knob of butter
- dash whisky
- salt and freshly ground black pepper Buy Now
Place the potatoes into a pan of salted cold water and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook gently for approximately 20 minutes. Check the tenderness - the point of a sharp knife should feel little resistance when pushed into the potato. Drain in a colander and return to the pan to dry out over a low heat for a minute. Mash them with a potato masher or pass through a mouli or ricer into a bowl. Using a wooden spoon beat in the warm milk or cream, then the butter vigorously, making the mash light and fluffy. Do the same to mash the turnip – minus the cream or milk.
To make the gravy, reduce the chicken stock and whisky in a pan over a high heat to thicken. Stir in the butter and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Simmer for a further few minutes to thicken further.
Heat the haggis thoroughly according to the instructions and serve arranged neatly on warm plates between a helping of neeps and a helping of tatties and a little gravy spooned onto each plate (with an additional dram on the side if you fancy).
