Macsween Haggis Meal Makeover

December 17, 2014Sew White

Last week I was contacted on twitter by Macsween haggis asking if I would like to try their haggis meal makeover. I have never tried haggis and was a little weary of it but after telling my dad who said I would absolutely love it and insisted to me I must try it so I said yes.

This lovely box was filled with everything I would need to make fabulous haggis nachos.

Everything ready for the nachos.

Reading the ingredients of the haggis I have to admit I did get a bit freaked out when it said lungs but everything else in the list seemed good to me. I thought I would be brave and try it. Everyone on twitter, fb and instagram were so positive about haggis describing it as a posh and unusual sausage, so I was very intrigued. As we microwaved the haggis it smelled amazing.

The recipe was so easy and not a recipe I would have put with haggis in my mind but it really worked. Tortilla chips with the hot haggis on top, cover in cheese and put under the grill on low-medium to let the cheese melt and warm up the chips. Spoon out the salsa, soured cream, guacamole and put some chopped chillies on top if you like spice. It was so easy to make and took barely any time at all.

Ready to eat. I loved how bright and cheery it was. The broken up haggis looked like minced beef and couscous and if I didn’t know it was haggis I would have taken it as peppery and beef.

Like the scaredy cat I am was very tentative abut taking the first bite but it was really nice! The spices were strong and the meatiness was nice. It was nice to try a new food especially in a fun and tasty way. Thank you Macsween for letting me try haggis for the first time. I’ll be having this again!

      I’m glad I’m not the only one trying it this year. I am tempted to try it again too x

    I’ve never tried haggis before, but it’s a lovely idea to have it with nachos! 🙂 x

      It isn’t as weird as I thought it would be. If you like lamb and beef and spices like pepper you’ll love it!
