Traditional Scottish Haggis Recipe

In Baldur’s Gate 3, there is a recipe that the hero receives at the beginning of the journey. It’s called haggis. The dish itself is a traditional Scottish meal, although my grandmother used to make a similar one from pigs’ stomachs. The recipe is delicious and hearty. Traditional Scottish haggis takes time to cook but it is worth cooking.

How to Make Traditional Scottish Haggis (Recipe Steps)

Step 1. Thoroughly wash the sheep’s stomach from all sides and soak it for 8 hours. If you can’t soak it under running water, you can periodically change the water.

Step 2. Cube the offal into approximately 5-6mm pieces.

Step 3. Sauté the diced offal and onions together in suet until browned.

Step 4. Simmer the sautéed offal for about an hour. Optionally, you can add sheep’s broth.

Step 5. Add spices such as black pepper and ground nutmeg ten minutes before the mixture is done.

Step 6. Stuff the prepared mixture into the stomach, filling it about 2/3 full. Sew up the stomach’s opening and pierce the walls in a few places with a needle to allow air to escape during cooking.

Step 7. Boil the haggis for three hours in salted water, topping up the water as needed.

Step 8. Once boiled, bake the haggis in the oven for 5 minutes to remove excess moisture and create a crispy exterior.

Leftover haggis can be refrigerated for up to three days. For a quick and hearty breakfast, try frying slices of haggis and serving them alongside eggs and toast.

Pair your haggis with a glass of peaty Scotch whisky for a truly authentic experience. The smoky notes of the whisky beautifully complement the richness of the dish. Enjoy this traditional Scottish haggis dish, rich in flavor and history!
