Traditional Highland Bake Recipe

This is quite a simple dish of baked oatmeal, vegetables and bacon, which is topped with pork sausages. If I am honest I have no idea why it is called Highland Bake but is certainly a traditional Scottish recipe.

Highland Bake

1 lb pork sausages
8 oz back bacon
1 oz lard(for frying)
4oz chopped onions
4 oz (blanched to remove skin) then chopped tomatoes
2 oz breadcrumbs
1 oz medium oatmeal
1 egg
2 tablespoons Milk

Preheat oven to 350F. Chop bacon into small pieces and fry in the lard over a low heat along with the onions. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Remove the mixture from the pan into a bowl.

Add the oatmeal and breadcrumbs to the mixture and season. Then beat the egg and milk into the mixture and mix thoroughly.

Spoon the mixture into a shallow, ovenproof dish and place the sausages on top. (sometimes sausagemeat is used to give more of a layer effect)

Bake for approx 30 minutes until the sausages are cooked through. This dish should serve 4 people and traditionally would be served with a potato dish of your choice.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
