Thread Name: BS: Beware the Killer Haggis!
Subject: RE: BS: Beware the Killer Haggis!
I once made a vegetarian haggis for a going-away party for a co-worker headed for Scotland, who was a vegetarian. We got the recipe off the internet by searching on haggis--it came from a Scottish vegetarian guest house. It was soaked in whiskey and baked as a casserole. Unfortunatly, in contained ground nuts, and unknown to me, the guest of honor's girlfriend had one of those life-threatening nut allergies. Even more unfortunately, she took a big bite before inquiring about the ingredients. She managed to spit most of it out and we dosed her with benedryl, so she avoided a trip to the emergency room. Otherwise, it was a great party.

The haggis was pretty good, a less complex recipe than the one above. But I think next time I'll just leave the nuts out.
