Haggis burgers

    25 min

    I purchased a large traditional haggis one day as it was on offer, it was sitting in my freezer for a while until I decided I would try and make some burgers with it. I put this recipe together and thought it worked well (that's if you like haggis!).

    Makes: 4 to 6 burgers

    • 1 (500g) traditional haggis
    • 80 to 125g crushed cream crackers or breadcrumbs
    • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
    • 4 to 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tablespoon English mustard
    • 1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Put all ingredients into a large bowl and mix together using your hands. Take some of the mixture and form a burger in the palm of your hands. If the burger seems too moist and doesn't hold its shape well, add more crushed crackers or breadcrumbs.
    2. Once you have made your burgers fry them in a pan over medium heat for about 20 minutes until golden brown, turning halfway through.


    Don't completely fill the pan when cooking, I've found that haggis burgers are slightly weaker than your average beef burger so leave some space to get a spatula under in order to flip the burger. Once you've got the spatula under the burger I've found it is best to flip it relatively quickly without putting pressure on its edge in the process. You can see some of the less successful attempts in my main photo.
