  • grated cheese
  • baked beans


1 Pre-heat oven to 200C/400F/Gas mark 6
2 Wash the potatoes and then roll them in the coarse sea salt whilst they are still damp.
3 Prick the skin all over with a fork and place them on a baking tray – bake in the pre-heated oven for 1 and a quarter hours, or until crisp on the outside and soft to the touch.
4 Reheat the haggis slices according to the instructions on the packet. Use meat or vegetarian haggis according to taste and dietary requirements.
5 Place the potatoes on a plate and cut them in half; mash the inside flesh a little bit and then add some butter, salt and pepper, before adding the hot haggis.
6 Optional extras are baked beans or grated cheese too, which is wonderful with the vegetarian haggis.
