When we went over to Edinburgh for Hogmanay, our friends made this for us, along with a slice of haggis! This is a traditional Scottish side dish, and goes well with a beef roast or chicken. It is also a great way to use an often overlooked vegetable: the swede (aka the yellow turnip, the rutabaga, or the Swedish turnip).

I grew up eating this dish and never knew that it had a name. Other than cutting the portions back to three I made this as written. The portions seems to be off as my three portions yielded at least five or six. Great little side dish. Thanks for sharing. Read More

We make this every year. It always takes longer than 15 minutes to cook the neeps. We usually cook them separately. The neeps take about 40 minutes and the tatties about half an hour. Rating for the concept and the ingredients hitch look fine. Thanks for introducing the taste. Our haggis wnd cabbage are cooking - black pudding to come. Happy Robbie Buns! Read More

I added a bit of milk to get it creamier. Next time, double or triple the dry mustard. Read More
