Haggis is a traditional Scottish dish that resembles Pennsylvania Scrapple originally made by early German settlers in America.

Haggis Scrapple
sheep offal (heart, liver, lungs) pig offal (heart, liver, lungs)
oatmeal cornmeal
in casings (originally in sheep stomachs) meatloaf
boiled fried

Haggis was a popular meal for the poor, as it was made from cheap leftover parts of a sheep, the most common livestock in Scotland. Meats are minced with fat, onions, oatmeal, spices, meat stock, and traditionally boiled in the animal’s stomach for about three hours. Cooked Haggis is normally served with Scotch whisky.
