Put the ‘burn’ in Burns Night with our delicious Centurion 1744 chilli and haggis rolls, made using spiced rum and scotch bonnet; a variety of chilli pepper named for its supposed resemblance to a Scottish tam o' shanter bonnet.
These simple, yet indulgent, pastry snacks are a delicious and convenient way to enjoy the flavours of traditional Scottish haggis, with a twist.
You will need:
1 pound haggis (store-bought or homemade)
1 package puff pastry sheets (thawed if frozen)
1 egg (beaten, for egg wash)
Flour (for dusting)
Start by preheating your oven according to the instructions on the puff pastry package.
If you have purchased pre-cooked haggis, simply follow the package instructions for reheating. If you are using raw haggis, make sure to cook it thoroughly according to the specific cooking instructions.
Lightly dust a clean surface with flour. Unroll the puff pastry sheets, and using a rolling pin, roll them out slightly to smooth any creases and enlarge the sheets.
Using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, divide the puff pastry sheets into squares or rectangles, depending on your preference and the size of the haggis portions.
Cover two-thirds of the pastry with your preferred amount of Centurion 1744.
Place a portion of haggis onto each pastry square or rectangle, leaving a border around the edges to seal the rolls.
Fold the pastry over the haggis, creating a roll. Press the edges together to seal the rolls. If you fancy pushing the boat out, you can use a fork to crimp the edges (fancy!)
Beat an egg in a small bowl and brush the tops of the haggis rolls with the egg wash, this will give the pastry a golden and shiny finish when baked!
Place the haggis rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and cooked through.
Allow the haggis rolls to cool for a few minutes before serving.
Enjoy your homemade haggis rolls on their own or with an extra dollop of 1944 as a dipping sauce; a tasty fusion of traditional Scottish flavours and spice, wrapped in a flaky and golden puff pastry.
