Sheep's head soup???? wacko.gif

Cullen Skink! Cod biled in milk ( still in its black skin!) Bubble and sqweek ( not particulary Scottish but a favourite in our house) and rather nauseous. Pigs feet on a Saturday night. Steak pies that were devoid of steak since the 50s. Sheeps heid soup was probably one of the more "continental" influences in Scottish cooking.

Stovies! my wife still cant get her mind around that one!

  Sounds great, what time did you say dinner was? lol We can always buy some croissants and they can be the "crust, heck we did learn a couple of things from "the auld alliance".

I also enjoy my steak and kidney, but I'm not real good at making pies.
I usually start off with some Olive Oil, a little Worcestershire Sauce, some Oyster Sauce and some Fish Sauce dribbled into the pan. Add chopped garlic, sliced onion, chopped red capsicum, chopped celery, bacon pieces and sliced mushrooms and saute all. Then add the chopped, browned steak and kidney and cook on low heat to ensure tenderness before adding the flavouring.
Recently, instead of adding just normal Gravox or Oxo Cubes for gravy, I've actually tried adding a few available Finishing Sauces such as Steak Diane, Pepper Steak or White Wine and Mushrooms to enhance the flavour.
The taste has been great and, as soon as I can find out how to make pastry properly, I might even have a go at Steak and Kidney Pies !

  When I was in my late teens, my mother and aunt (with whom we lived) discovered stewed sausages. Neither of them were great cooks and this dish turned out to be really terrific. Unfortunately I made the big mistake of telling them so, with predictable results.

I had to ask them to stop making it eventually huh.gif

You can do the same thing with sausages but cook them in tinned tomatoes, garlic and chilli instead of gravy. Great with baked potatoes or mash or even rice or pasta. My kids loved it.

that sounds good to me Betsy, I might try it one of these days .

I am not a lover of stewed link sausages , but I will put them in a stew
or a pie , I like the flavour they give . I also like them fried with
pancakes and covered with maple syrup .

I have a preference for boiled hotdogs loaded with onions n peppers
smothered with relish and mustard on a hotdog bun . smile.gif

  Tombro, sounds delish. I am now on my way to the store to get the sausages etc. and probably no one but HRH and I will enjoy them but that is their loss. smile.gif I do like to make steak and kidney pie, from time to time but just try getting kidney in the US. lol so I wait until I get back to Canada and make it there. Love the "old dishes", those women knew how to make a penny do a pounds worth. The only thing I ever had trouble with was sheep's head soup and tripe, never ever learned to deal with either of them. Yoiks.

  I thought stovies were potatoes that you slice and cook on top of a stew or casserole so they cook and soak up the gravy at the same time.
