Here’s our suggestion to go with the haggis – tell us what your eating. Clapshot is a traditional Orkney recipe of tatties and yellow turnip and is usually served with haggis. It’s a great option for Burns Night. Clapshot is sometimes called Clapshaw or Orcadian Clapshot. The Northern Ireland equivalent is Champ and the Southern Ireland dish Colcannon.

500g boiled potatoes
500g boiled swede
50g butter
2 tablespoons of chopped chives
Salt and Pepper

1. Boil the tatties and swede in separate pans for about 15 minutes and then drain.
2. Mash the swede and tatties together adding the butter, trhen pass through a sieve.
3. Stir in the chives and season with the salt and pepper.

if you make too much you can make into potato cakes for breakfast, you might need somewthing to help with the hangover.
