Savory Scottish Oatmeal
Posted on October 21, 2016
While in Scotland I tried loads of different and wonderful foods including haggis, black pudding, white pudding, mealies and Skirlie. My favorite out of all of them was Skirlie, a Savory Scottish Oatmeal side dish that is usually served with beef – particularily mince and tatties, (think shepherd’s pie). This is probably due to the fact that one of the main ingredients for this recipe is suet, the raw hard fat found on beef and mutton. Don’t let that strange ingredient phase you. Skirlie is incredible. It’s fragrant, and intensely satisfying!
