Fine dining Scottish style

We're still visiting my Mum and Dad in Scotland. Last night it was time to give the DKs (my DH is Danish and the DKs are both born in Denmark) an important lesson in Scottish culinary customs - a visit to the chip and chipshop :)

My Dad and DB (dear brother) had classic fish suppers ('supper' means served with a portion of chips). My DN (dear niece) ordered a deep-fried pizza. The pizza is dipped in batter then deep-fried... And yes, it's true, they do exist - as do deep-fried Mars Bars and deep-fried Bounties!

I decided to have a different kind of supper. Here's mine - something I used to eat regularly when I lived in Scotland over 20 years ago. It's served on a bed of chips, doused generally with chippie sauce (brown HP sauce which is watered down with vinegar), and is eaten straight out of the paper. These days it's blank paper they use for wrapping, not newspaper.

Can you guess what is is? I'll reveal the answer tomorrow.




Bon appetit! :)

And the answer was: a white pudding (or 'mealy pudding') supper. No meat! Just oatmeal, onions and spices. Guaranteed to stick to your bones.... :)
