Just got too much haggis leftover from last night’s Burns supper? How about gravy (yes I like gravy with haggis, neeps and tatties), got any noodles? If so, try my noodles in gravy with haggis. A Chinese style leftovers dish.

Cook some large, flat noodles, drain and set aside.
Heat up some gravy in a shallow frying pan, crumble in some leftover cooked haggis, heat through. Pour over noodles and serve.

Any gravy will do, but here’s a quick recipe to get you started:

Water from boiling potato and neeps, red wine, lamb stock, tomato puree, garlic or better roasted garlic, bay leaf, herbs, mustard.

Boil up the liquid ingredients, add herbs, garlic, tomato and mustard, boil again. Leave until needed then reheat and strain before serving. Thicken if you prefer, with cornflour and cold water mixed to a paste, or butter and flour mixed together. Add the thickener and boil up again.

More ideas?
Haggis can be used much like mince so I’ve heard of and tried a few haggis alternatives. Haggis samosas, pakoras, wontons are quite common in Scotland. A few years ago some friends also brought haggis burritos to Edinburgh, so if you’ve got no leftovers at home and are in the area… try them at Los Cardos, Leith Walk. They sell their haggis all the time, not just Burns night, and their other options are also great.

Another fine combo found in a pub in the highlands was baked potato, Haggis, topped with melted cheese and whisky… 

Mmmm. Enjoy your burns night leftovers.
