I gave this recipe a try because I wanted to experience Scottish cuisine. While the haggis was interesting, I found it a bit too strong for my taste.

I tried this recipe with my friends, and it was a hit, or they were being kind. The only downside was the preparation time, but it worth it.

I was hesitant to try haggis at first, but this recipe made me a believer. The shot of Scotch whiskey on the side elevated the whole experience. Great dish for a cozy night in.
