Haggis Waffles



I promise that this is the last of my new Burns Night recipes for 2017. Every year I get just a little bit carried away! So far this time round we've had Scotch Beef & Haggis Meatloaf with Whisky Neeps and Chocolate Haggis, both of which have gone down a storm with my followers on social media and readers here on the blog. I just had to sneak another one in before the big day on the 25th.



The idea for Haggis Waffles came to me in bed one night. I immediately turned to Google and Pinterest as I was convinced that there would already be lots of them out there but I couldn't find a single mention of any! Could I possibly have created a completely new thing?! They actually turned out even better than I could have imagined. The smell as they are cooking is incredible. You could easily use Veggie Haggis in them if you prefer. When it came to eating I went for crispy streaky bacon and lashings of maple syrup. Foodie Girl opted for red sauce, Boy for brown and Foodie Loon for sriracha. I reckon they'd also be pretty awesome with a whisky cream sauce. Sláinte!


Haggis Waffles

200g Self Raising Flour
25g Caster Sugar
Pinch Salt
280ml Milk
2 Free Range Eggs
80g Butter, melted
260g Haggis, cubed

Sieve together the flour, caster sugar and salt into a medium bowl.
In another bowl whisk together the milk, eggs and melted butter.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Pour in the liquid mixture and whisk until well combined.
Chop up the haggis into small cubes, tip into the waffle batter and stir through.
Cook according to the instructions for your particular waffle maker.


Whilst you've got the waffle maker out here's a few more of my recipes plus some from my food blogging colleagues. Enjoy!

    1. Even if you weren't keen on the real deal these would be great with Vegetarian Haggis.

    1. Why thank you Elizabeth! Although I am most definitely of the opinion that Haggis is for life and not just for Burns night.
