I ALSO got haggis from our friend. Instead of veggie haggis they got me the real thing. The Real Thing! I have only seen it on tv, on the Travel Channel. Somehow I got the idea that I would totally love it. I’m cool with blood sausages so why not haggis? Oh was I wrong. I guess I don’t really know what haggis is. Apparently it’s not grind up beef parts but grind up lamb parts. I like lamb when it doesn’t really taste like lamb. Also by the time I got around to eating the haggis it was already a week old from it’s used by date. Oh well.
I just want to apologize for combining haggis with an English style breakfast. Sorry…heehee but I REALLY wanted baked beans. Oh and sorry for the English muffins. This meal took a long ass time to make. I started off by boiling the potatoes then when it was done I threw them onto a pan and started sauteing them. Also fun to note that I added Irish butter with the olive oil in the pan. When the potatoes started to brown I added mushroom that I had cooked earlier while the potatoes were boiling. Added salt and pepper and a generous sprinkle of Herbes de Provence. When that was done I started on cooking my chicken sausages and frying up 2 over easy eggs. Then I heated up another pan. I cut opened the haggis and roughly cut it into small cubes and threw them into the new pan. When the haggies was almost done browning I added 3 tomatoes that were cut into halves. Then opened the can of baked beans and just heated it up in a small pot. *Phew….and then it all came together onto 1 plate.
I took a giant bite of the haggis. I really wanted to like it but I was only able to eat another bite. It took me a while to realize why I didn’t like the taste of haggis. Like I said before I didn’t know it was made from sheep parts and I can’t really stand the strong smell/taste of lamb and haggis is a giant round thing of sheep bits. Oh well, but the baked beans, fried egg, potatoes and mushroom, chicken apple sausage, tomato, and English muffin were awesome.
