Haggis, Neeps and Tattie Pie – Burns Night on a Budget 2/2

A great way to feed a lot of people,, this Haggis Neeps and Tattie Pie is a bit like a Cornish Pastie and just as delicious #haggis

On Monday I showed you a traditional Burns Supper of Haggis, Neeps and Tatties with a few subtle changes. That made a hearty meal for three. Today I’m going to show you a Haggis, Neeps and Tattie Pie which uses the same ingredients but can be stretched to become a pie that will feed eight.

Mix the veg with the haggis and press onto the pastry

Haggis, Neeps and Tattie Pie is really simple to make, just dice your haggis.  Peel the potatoes and turnip (swede) then cook in salted water until just starting to soften.  Then let them cool a little before mixing with the haggis, whisky and cream.  The simply pile the mixture onto a sheet of shortcrust pastry on a baking tray. Brush the edges of the pastry with beaten egg. 

Cover the haggis and veg with more pastry

Cover the mixture with another sheet of pastry and crimp the two sheets of pastry together.  Brush the top with beaten egg and make four holes in the top to let out the steam. 

Bake the pie until golden

Bake for 30 – 40 minutes until the pastry is golden and the filling is cooked.

  1. 1 small haggis
  2. 1 small turnip (swede), peeled and cut into 2cm dice
  3. 3 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 2cm dice
  4. 1 pack of shortcrust pastry sheets or make your own pastry
  5. 2 eggs
  6. 100 ml double cream
  1. Heat the oven to 200 C. Simmer the turnip and potatoes in salted water until just starting to soften, about 5 minutes for the potato and about 10-15 for the turnip (swede).
  2. Open the haggis packaging, slice and dice the haggis and cook in the microwave according to the pack instructions.
  3. Mix the haggis, potato and turnip together with 1 egg, double cream and the whisky, if using.
  4. Line a medium baking tray with one sheet of pastry, brush around the edge with beaten egg. Add the filling mixture and cover with the other sheet of pastry, crimping the edges of the pastry to seal.
  5. Make two or three steam holes in the top of the pie and brush with more beaten egg.
  6. Bake the pie for 30-40 minutes until the top is golden brown. Serve sliced with green vegetables, you may also wish to serve gravy if you prefer.
  1. The texture is similar to a Cornish Pasty and I can report that the pie also tastes good served cold.

Mmm, looks great, be good with veggie haggis šŸ˜‰

Janice Pattie

Thanks for the kind comments, Keep Calm and Fanny on, you are right, the pie would adapt perfectly for vegetarian's using veggie haggis.

I LOVE this pie recipe Janice and I am sorry I may be too late for a slice, but I just thought I would pop over to say AWESOME recipe! Karen xxxx


Sounds good, though I can't find haggis in this area (lower Alabama). I have heard my mother-in-law (who is Scottish (2nd gen. American) talk about it, my husband talks about it…I am open minded and would like to try this! The haggis, neeps (turnip?), and potatoes.
