Originated in Scotland
Includes Sheep innards

Haggis is a delicacy, possibly originating in Scotland, that contains sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally simmered in the animal's stomach for approximately three hours.

It is served in the form of a sausage or savoury pudding. The sausage is cooked in a casing of sheep's intestine, as many sausages are.

HistoryEdit

Haggis is popularly assumed to be of Scottish origin, but there is a lack of historical evidence that could conclusively attribute its origins to any one place. The first known written recipe for a dish of the name (as 'hagese'), made with offal and herbs, is in the verse cookbook Liber Cure Cocorum dating from around 1430 in Lancashire, North West England.
