Every single person at 5pm Towers loves haggis, so we were cockahoop when Jo Macsween got in touch about doing a guest post on the blog.  Loads of restaurants on 5pm do creative things with haggis, so we already know it’s not just good with neeps and tatties.  The nachos recipe is particularly genius, I think I know what I’ll be having for tea on Friday night….

And don’t miss the competition to win a week’s supply of haggis, we’ll feature the winning recipe or idea on here too!


Macsween Haggis Nachos

At Macsween we know a thing or two about haggis and have lots of recipes for feeding your haggis hunger. This simple recipe for Macsween Haggis Nachos is a favourite with our Facebook fans, a cinch to prepare and can be made with both traditional and vegetarian haggis. The ‘Tex Mac’ combination can be spiced up or cooled down with this lip-smacking array of flavours.
