Walking ideas from Claire

The Law- Also known as the law hilll, this storical landmark is the highest peak in the city. Going up hill will certainly be great exercise for the whole family.

Riverside Nature Park, made from an old landfill site this walking location boasts plenty of wildlife and great views, it is also a great place for bird watching.

Clatto Country Park, originally made to be a part of Dundee’s water supply, but this is no longer the case and is a great location for walking.

Get walking it’s great for fresh air,exercise and nature.

Burn’s Night Activities for Monday, 25 January 2021

Burn’s Haggis Potato Cakes

Ingredients:

• 700g floury potatoes, cut into 3cm chunks

• 300g haggis or vegetarian haggis

• 3 spring onions, finely sliced.

• 150g breadcrumbs

• 1½ tbsp olive oil

• 4 large eggs

Method:

o Boil the potatoes in a pan of salted water for 10-12 minutes. Drain and leave to steam-dry, then mash until smooth. Season to taste.

o Meanwhile, cook the haggis following pack instructions. Tip into a bowl and break into chunks with a fork, then fold through the mash with three quarters of the spring onion and leave to cool. Form into four potato cakes using your hands.

o Put the breadcrumbs in a food processor and blitz until fine. Tip onto a plate, and then coat the cakes in the crumbs. Chill for 15 minutes o Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the potato cakes for 5 minutes on both sides, or until golden.

o Heat a large pan of water until just boiling. Crack one of the eggs into a small bowl. Swirl the water to create a whirlpool, and then gently tip the egg into the centre of the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes until poached to your liking, then repeat with the remaining eggs.

o Serve the cakes topped with the eggs and remaining spring onions.
