My Mcsweens haggis says "Do not reheat"

I don't intend to use it all, yet all ways of re-using leftovers require heating.

I usually heat the first time in simmering water. Can I do only half of it using that method if I wrap really well? I don't want a saucepan of loose haggi 🤔😉

You can slice when it's in its raw state so that you can use again from raw.

but I always reheat mine - for example I am have a bubble and squeak type thing tonight 

Id chuck it in the microwave, Pasta, just to warm it up a bit. I reheat lots of stuff that says don't reheat and am still here to tell the tale 😉

I admit, I've always reheated it...this is the first time I've seen the big black warning. 

I mean...who eats a whole one??? 🤔😉😊😋

I've always been told that the whole of the Haggis should be eaten within 6 hours of it being killed.

After which, it is fit only fore Komodo dragons.😉

I'll be honest, I reheat leftover Chinese takeaway food the following day, including the rice, in the microwave.

In that article it says...


//Can You Reheat Haggis?

When it comes to reheating haggis, there are a few key considerations to keep in mind before diving into that second helping. Firstly, it is generally safe to reheat cooked haggis once, as long as proper food safety guidelines are followed. To ensure the safety of your reheated haggis, it is crucial to store any leftover portions promptly and properly. Refrigerate the haggis within two hours of cooking and transfer them into shallow containers for faster cooling. When ready for reheating, make sure the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) throughout the dish to kill off any potential bacteria. // I understand that, its ok. I'll only be re-heating once

Oh dear...I forgot to put komodo Dragon on my shopping list

So it's the re-heated haggis that's made you the feisty woman that you are? 

🤔 xx

Ooft. That was a big haggis R .!

One assumes it was put in the fridge. That usually stops bacteria multiplying sufficiently to cause illness. I'd reheat it without any worries.


BTW I think the US don't allow haggis so their sites may not be the best to advise ;-)


When I buy a haggis, I remove the casing, cut it into three portions and chop each portion up.  Then (unless I'm about to use a portion straight away), I wrap the three portions in cling film and put them in the freezer.

When I need some haggis, I defrost one of the portions and then microwave it (which works just as well, if not better, as boiling the whole thing for ages does).

I hid my microwave in a cupboard months ago. It's a pain to get I don't!

Finally! The voice of reason.

Some foods (e.g. firm-textured fish, such as salmon and trout) cook far, far better in a microwave oven than by any other method!

Yes, I make super scrambled egg in the microwave - needs very careful attention mind.
