I have developed this recipe from 18 yrs of making the Celtic Comestible for Burns Suppers, Scottish Games and the like here in Colorado, USA. Certain well-known ingredients such as lungs and sheep stomachs are not prepared for human consumption here, but for presentation purposes, cows stomach, or tripe, is available and looks just the thing!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the raw ingredients-a shrimp boiler or turkey fryer with a cage works well, for approx 1 hour.
  2. Chop the onions and add all the herbs and oats, mix well.
  3. Chop up the cooked lamb organs-a Cuisinart works well, but takes time, be careful not to turn the meat into pate.
  4. Mix the meat with the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Divide the mixture between the Reynolds oven bags.
  6. Tie off the bags, be careful to eliminate as much air as possible to avoid bursting the bags.
  7. Boil the bags of Haggis for a further 1 hour.
  8. Serve with bashed neeps and tatties.
  9. This mixture also freezes well, but be careful on reheating as the Reynolds oven bags become very brittle when you freeze them.
  10. Yields approx 75 lbs cooked.
