1 sheep's stomach or ox secum, cleaned and thoroughly, scalded, turned inside out and soaked overnight in cold salted water
heart and lungs of one lamb
450g/1lb beef or lamb trimmings, fat and lean
2 onions, finely chopped
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp ground dried coriander
1 tsp mace
1 tsp nutmeg
water, enough to cook the haggis
stock from lungs and trimmings
- Wash the lungs, heart and liver (if using). Place in large pan of cold water with the meat trimmings and bring to the boil. Cook for about 2 hours.
- When cooked, strain off the stock and set the stock aside.
- Mince the lungs, heart and trimmings.
- Put the minced mixture in a bowl and add the finely chopped onions, oatmeal and seasoning. Mix well and add enough stock to moisten the mixture. It should have a soft crumbly consistency.
- Spoon the mixture into the sheep's stomach, so it's just over half full. Sew up the stomach with strong thread and prick a couple of times so it doesn't explode while cooking.
- Put the haggis in a pan of boiling water (enough to cover it) and cook for 3 hours without a lid. Keep adding more water to keep it covered.
- To serve, cut open the haggis and spoon out the filling. Serve with neeps (mashed swede or turnip) and tatties (mashed potatoes).

Now if that doesn't make you hungry then you're just plain weird !

Eggos, dude... Mrs. Butterworths Syrup. Three pieces of wicked good breakfast sausage and three pieces of thick style bacon with barely any fat, cooked just right so it's like... a little crispy, but still chewy and bacon juicy... Glass of OJ... Glass of Milk (with or without Rich Chocolaty Ovaltine)... And some expensive rye toast that you actually had to cut from a real loaf... sliced bread is not so good.. What else, what else... If you like grapefruit, go nuts... Hmm... Yeah that'll do.
March 20 2007 7:21 PM EDT
Honestly... if that doesn't win... if that didn't make you hungry... I'll pay you 50k... because I'm dying now, and I have none of that stuff except Mrs. Butterworths, and I'm thinking about going to drink it.

Dark Chocolate Mousse:
2 cups chilled heavy cream
4 large egg yolks
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
7 oz fine-quality dark bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), chopped
Heat 3/4 cup cream in a 1-quart heavy saucepan until hot. Whisk together yolks, sugar, and a pinch of salt (optional) in a metal bowl until combined well, then add hot cream in a slow stream, whisking until combined. Transfer to saucepan and cook over moderately low heat, stirring constantly, until it registers 160°F on thermometer. Pour custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl and stir in vanilla.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler or a metal bowl set over a pan of simmering water (or in a glass bowl in a microwave at 50 percent power 3 to 5 minutes), stirring frequently. Whisk custard into chocolate until smooth, then cool.
Beat remaining 1 1/4 cups cream in a bowl with an electric mixer until it just holds stiff peaks. Whisk one fourth of cream into chocolate custard to lighten, then fold in remaining cream gently but thoroughly.
Spoon mousse into 8 (6-ounce) stemmed glasses and chill, covered, at least 6 hours. Let stand at room temperature about 20 minutes before serving. Optional: top with whipped cream.

Macaroni&Cheese. The good kind, you know what I'm talking about. A basket of the most perfect golden brown crispity crunchy fried chicken ever made. Breast, wings, thighs, drums, its all there. Some mashed potatoes so perfectly smooth and creamy you'd swear they were mashed by angels. A pitcher of oh so tasty gravy on the side, optional of course. Oh look - here comes a pan straight from the oven of the most awesome rolls you've ever laid your eyes on. Lightly crispy on the outside, pure fluffy goodness on the inside. They already have that perfect slight-buttered taste to them and that very aroma is reaching your nostrils filling you with pure bliss. As you sit down at the table to begin your scrumptious feast, you hear from the kitchen the sounds of a rolling pin against wood, preparing just for you an oh so beautiful blueberry pie for desert.. with - you guessed it, graham cracker crust.
Best thing to eat. hmmmmm
no it's not worth the forum ban
eat my Toe jam i know it makes your mouth water
If you want to go extra fancy, tea and crumpets.

"1 tsp mace"
A real cheap, simple italian dish:
Fagioli Bean Soup
1 can of fagioli beans in olive oil
2 cans of whole peeled roma tomatoes
1 medium onion, chopped finely
3 carrots, sliced vertically in half then in think diagonal pieces
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 or 3 stalks and leaves of basil chopped
1 TBsp of dried oregano
1 green chilli, pierced
2 tsp salt
1 tsp cracked black pepper
1. Boil carrots for 10 minutes, then drain.
2. Heat 1/4 cup of olive oil (from beans or otherwise), and fry the basil, chili, and garlic on med for about half a min, until garlic is golden brown. Remove the chili here or at a later step if you enjoy spicy food.
3. Add onions, increase heat, and fry until tender.
4. Add beans, and cook for another minute or so.
5. Add tomatoes - un-crushed - 2 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of cracked pepper,and bring to boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer.
6. Simmer for about an hour, stirring occasionally and don't crush the tomatoes until at least half an hour in. In the last 15 or so minutes, add the oregano and season further to taste
At one hour, it's at a consistency for eating as a soup with some warmed foccia bread, and if you simmer a little longer, it's good for a sauce to pour over something. I have strange tastes, and enjoy it for breakfast with a few slices of toast and runny poached eggs ;)

And on the seventh day there came Breakfast!!
Spag Bol is easy and affordable. I'm sure u already know how to make it but when u add some garlic while the meat is simmering to give it a fresh tang then while u mix the sauce in through the meat add some red wine to give it a nice finish. Always makes my mouth water when i smell that garlic cooking. Hope it works for u. If u want more info on how i cook my spag just CM me.
