Late Burns Night and St Patrick’s Day

We had a delayed Burns night, seems a bit of a habit of our band.
But with Covid, who knows, maybe we are celebrating Burns Night 2020.

I wanted to make Haggis “bitterballen” (Fried balls) but Irmgard has no frying pan. So I made some Haggis sausage rolls.

The others made also a lot of Scottish/Irish themed food. (Too much again) But i don’t have the recipes.

We played some old tunes, and some new. Talking eating and drinking, time flies!

Irmgard and I played a duet on the Harp and some new tunes on the Concertina.

Wellll the recipes:

I wanted to make this one:

Instead I made this:

  • 392g haggis, canned haggis ( Holiday 2022, stuffed a load of cans in our car )
  • 3 Sausages (that is about 200 gr)
  • Bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 320g ready rolled all-butter puff pastry
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten

Mix haggis, sausagemeat and parsley.

I used square “bladerdeeg” for pastry, made a roll out of one square filled with the haggis. (Takes about of 13 sheets).
Brushed on the beaten egg, and put on baking paper.
20 Minutes in a 180 degrees oven.
Cut up each roll in 3-4 parts.
