Haggis Tartlets with Red Onion Marmalade

 Preparation time: less than 10 minutes. Serves 6


454g Macsween haggis
Oatcake tartlets, or you can use little pasty cases
Fresh coriander or flat parsley leaves, to garnish

For red onion marmalade:
3 medium red onions, peeled and finely chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp red wine or cider vinegar
4 tbsp red wine or cider
1 level tbsp dark brown sugar


1. For the marmalade, sauté the onions in the oil for 15-20 minutes until softened.
2. Add the vinegar, wine and sugar and increase the heat. Once bubbling, lower to a simmer, cover and cook gently for 10 minutes, then cook uncovered for about 20 minutes, or until thick.
3. Add seasoning to taste and set aside to cool.
4. To assemble the tartlets, heat the Macsween haggis as per the guidelines on the pack.
5. Slit open the haggis casing and spoon some haggis into each oatcake case.

To serve

1. Top with a dollop of marmalade and serve at once.

Jo's tip: aim to fill and serve the tartlets as quickly as possible to avoid soggy canapés!
