A real haggis consists of sheep offal (heart, liver and lungs) minced with suet, oatmeal, onions and seasoning and boiled in a sheep's stomach. More modern production uses sausage casing, natural or artificial, instead of the stomach.

Haggis is traditionally served with neeps and tatties, especially at a Burns Supper. Alternatively, a fried slice of haggis can form part of a fried breakfast, and Scottish chip shops often sell deep-fried battered haggis.


A traditional Scottish dish, also available throughout the UK.


Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o' the puddin'-race!

are the first two lines of Robert Burns' poem Address to a Haggis, which is recited at a Burns Supper.
