Ok, let's hear it. What are hagis made of and how are they made?

Haggis is usually made from: sheep's pluck (heart, liver and lungs) with onions, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt - all boiled in the sheep's stomach for an hour or so. Finger licking good.

it's magical.

And how you you eat one? Does it set like meatloaf where you'd slice it? Or would it be more like a stew? Do you eat the casing or peel it off?

This site is a wealth of information! lol

You stab it open and dig out the insides. Last night we had it on toast, but when the toast ran out we just ate it by the spoonful.

Monica and Treavor wisely observed that the meat/oatmeal mixture was similar to what you find in cabbage rolls.

Last night's haggis was amazing...nice and spicey.

We weren't served the casing last night,but the haggis Mr and I cooked up at home later had casing which...yes....I ate.

Well thank you! Now if I ever get served one I'll at least know where to start.
