This recipe idea was part of the 2014 Sykes Cottages Haggis Championships.   The aim was to design a dish to change people’s ideas on haggis and make it something they’d jump at the chance to eat.

This tasty delight makes use of our Orange Citrus with Lime as a perfect accompaniment.

Ingredients

  • 50g butter (can substitute with olive oil for a healthier version)
  • 100g goats cheese
  • Jus-Rol 6 Filo pastry sheets 270g
  • Macsween traditional haggis 454g (serves 2-3)
  • Galloway Chilli – Chilli Orange Citrus with Lime

 

Method

Pre-heat oven to 190°C (fan oven) mark 6.

  • Place the sliced haggis in the microwave, medium heat, covered, cook for 4 minutes, break up with a fork and then continue cooking for a further 5 minutes. Once it’s cooked allow to cool.
  • Whilst the haggis is cooking, cut the goats cheese into chunks
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan.
  • Open out the filo and cut sheets in half to form 12 square.  Cover the pastry with a damp tea towel just to stop it from drying out until you are ready to use it.
  • Take 1 sheet of the filo pastry and brush with the melted butter. Cover the sheet almost to the edges. The melted butter with help the layers to stick together.
  • Place the next layer on at an angle, repeat the last step and again until there are three layers. The top layer does not require melted butter brushed on it. 
  • Take a large spoonful of the cooled haggis and place in the centre of the filo sheets. And then top with a chunk of goat’s cheese.
  • Pinch together the pastry sheets to cover the haggis and cheese (making a parcel). Open out the edges and brush with melted butter to brown the pastry.
  • Place on a lightly greased baking tray.
  • Then place in the middle of a pre-heated oven and cook for 15-18 minutes, until golden brown.

 Serve with a salad and Galloway Chillies Orange Citrus with Lime, or your favourite Galloway Chilli alternative :-)
