This recipe is from Scotland; in Aberdeenshire it is traditionally served on Saturdays. In other parts of Scotland the skirlie part of this dish is served as an accompaniment to mince or used as a stuffing for chicken, game or lamb. Carniverous cooks can use 1 1/2 ounces of good quality beef dripping instead of butter for frying the skirlie, if they wish. I've not tried this recipe yet (which comes from an old Sainsbury's magazine), but the Zaar World Tour 2005 provides the perfect opportunity to post it. NB this recipe measures in UK fluid ounces, which is slightly different to the USA fluid ounce.
