haggis reimagined

across the pond
and
north a bit
january 25th
is a big deal
burn's night
as it is known
is in deference
to a favored scottish poet
robert burns
revelry is compulsory
and so is
haggis
words are read
songs are sung
and
haggis is served

prepared haggis is difficult to find

this year
i set out to make my own version
true to the spirit
however
its authenticity 
can be called to question

not for the weak of stomach
nor
those with a flair for the dramatic

my version is 
haggis-lite
using more readily available ingredients
and
served in a less traditional fashion

to learn more about burn's night supper


 haggis

for the uninitiated
haggis is lovely as an appetizer
place a nice heap in a phyllo or pastry cup
and
top with mashed potatoes

  1. Sounds like a fabulous event, Christy! I've never had haggis, but I have a hunch that your version would be the one to try!
