Haggis, neeps and tatties

The UK’s leading producer of haggis, Macsween, has expanded its range to include a gluten free haggis, certified by Coeliac UK.  The Macsween gluten free haggis is packed with the same flavour and richness as their traditional haggis but uses gluten free oats as an alternative.

To celebrate, here is a recipe for a gluten free version of the celebrated traditional Scottish dish – haggis, neeps and tatties.

Whisky is also gluten free, so your Burns’ Night celebration should be a good one. *
