Skirlie Mash - Scottish Mashed Potatoes With Onions and Oats
35 mins (prep 15, cooking 20)
8 ingredients
6-8 servings
A beautiful, creamy and traditional accompaniment for your Burns Night haggis, Hogmanay or indeed any beef or game dishes; this mashed potato is delicious and very nutritious. It contains onions as well as oats, for a mashed potato recipe which is delightfully different! The word "skirlie" is the name of the oatmeal and onion compound that is added to the mashed potatoes, as you have to "skirl" it around the pan! Skirlie is often used as a base for stuffing, and is made and eaten in Northern England, as well as in Scotland. This recipe was taken from BBC Good Food, January 2006.
