Haggis, warm reekin’ rich, the very democratic dish, should grace any table

“Haggis is, in essence, an unevolved medieval sausage. It was a staple food of the peasantry, made using the less expensive parts of the animal, and it has stuck in its original form. Neeps and tatties, its traditional accompaniment, were introduced as fodder crops, so it was truly a low-budget affair. I love it.
