The great taste of lung

I've just finished off the Burns Night haggis, accompanied by a couple of bubble and squeak patties and a fried egg.

Mmm. Lung.

How do you like to eat lung?

Haggis, neeps and tatties are always good, but MrsR hates turnip so these days we usually replace neeps with buttered greens.

We had haggis nachos this year. Exactly the same as normal nachos, just use haggis instead of chilli.

And haggis is the best filling for a baked potato.

I went to Burns night party last night.

While the Scots are generally rubbish I'll grudgingly give them the haggis, neeps,tatties & whiskey combo.

I tend to substitute the neeps with something a bit greener too. This year, steamed kale, the last of which went into the bubble.

With gravy or something, else it's inclined to be a bit dry.

Is there some uptick in Burns Suppers?

Upchuck, more like.

Racist!

My neighbours (Plymouth Brethern farmers) would make lung pie from the home butchered pig. It had the delightful name of Henge pie.

Fine, fine eepage as ever.

I was told by a German butcher that the Münich weisswurst (Get used to them and they are good) are mostly lung. Traditionally calf and there´s an offally trad local delicacy called saure lunge (sour lungs), sometimes mixed with heart.

Onions, tomatoes, garlic, Worcestershire sauce. All sliced up and fried in Olive oil

Mortadella is mostly lung isn't it? Bloody delicious.

You slice up Worcestershire sauce?

lawyer there

Or pedantic twat as Mrs Gee calls it.

foghorn - 27 Jan 2019 14:01:19 (#17 of 44)

Just looked it up out of curiosity. Mortadella is pork, with pork fat and flavourings. It´s delicious anyway.

Best not to wonder too much what is in sausages.

When we used to send pigs to slaughter they would often ask - do you want the head or sausages.

foghorn - 27 Jan 2019 14:05:38 (#19 of 44)

The head usually goes into brawn type products around here.

Also delicious.

I tried making my own once from half a pigs head. Thank the Gods for butchers and the meat processing industry.

Lung is a serious meat and we shouldn't make lights of it.
