Scottish Shortbread, Gluten-Free
This is a variation of the traditional shortbread recipe to make it gluten-free.
A Scotsman's Shepherd Pie
Yes, shepherd's pie is predominantly thought of as Irish or British. But since I'm Scottish, I thought I'd give it a unique twist to suit my ancestral tastes. The use of lamb, the smoky, heather taste of Guinness® Draught (Irish, I admit), and the topping of sharp Cheddar and smoked paprika give this version its unique, smoky-sweet flavor.
Cock a Leekie Soup
Traditional Scots soup of chicken and leeks. One pound of potatoes, peeled and cubed, could be substituted for the barley, if desired.
Scotch Eggs with Mustard Sauce
Scotch Eggs are part of the traditional Scots breakfast, which also includes porridge, bacon, fried egg, sausage, black, white and fruit puddings and hot baps and jam. They are also sufficiently versatile to be served hot with gravy at teatime, or cold as a snack.
Scottish Shortbread IV
This is the most basic cookie recipe there is. Real butter and brown sugar give it an irresistible flavor.
A Scottish dish of potatoes cooked with onions and corned beef. It's a whole meal in itself; simple and easy to make!
This shortbread cookie is a traditional Scottish recipe. These are round cookies sandwiched with jam and topped off with a delicious icing and a cherry.
This is how my grandad makes his cups of tea. He's in his seventies now and drinks whisky like he'll never get hold of it again. This drink is very relaxing and a great way to sedate family members and friends.
Scottish Shortbread II
Light, very buttery. Does not make a large batch, but are simple enough to make many batches. Recipe does not double well.
'Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face, Great chieftain o' the puddin-race!' Here's a tasty vegetarian version of The Robbie Burns Night sausage, passed on to me by some friends from Cape Breton.
