    Celebrating this 4th July

    Posted by Team Macsween

    To celebrate America’s Independence Day, this 4th July we have the perfect meal to share for any celebration. You’ll be fighting for the last piece with this moreish snack!  Our vegetarian haggis is packed with healthy fresh vegetables, pulses and spices, a delicious addition to any meal. Have a read below at another mouth-watering recipe from Julia at Vikalinka. Bringing the whole family together, this is an easy dish to create at home. We can’t recommend it enough!

    We’re hoping that our friends overseas will be joining us in enjoying our delicacy in the not to distant future. Haggis was banned in America in 1971 but discussions with U.S authorities looks like hopefully this may change. Maybe you’ll see Macsween in American soon!
