  • Lamb Hot Pot

    This will serve four people. Though not a traditional Scottish dish it is often served in our restaurants. It is also known as traditional Lancashire hot pot or lamb and leek hotpot, though this uses different vegetables. In addition to this version there are also Irish lamb hot pot recipes available.

    Maw Broon has an alternative lamb hot pot recipe in her new book Maw Broon's But An' Ben Cookbook which uses additional ingredients such as sheep's kidneys and chopped mushrooms.

    Lamb Hot Pot Recipe


    2 finely diced carrots
    2 finely diced celery sticks
    2 finely diced onions
    1 crushed garlic clove
    2 sprigs of rosemary
    75g butter
    4 large chump chops
    150ml white wine
    650ml good lamb or beef stock
    8 thinly sliced Rooster potatoes
    Salt and pepper

    I have published a book which tells the story of The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital which reveals her origins in the QAIMNS and where she meets a QA veteran of Afghanistan. She still walks her wards and tells her story by taking Scott Grey, a QARANC nurse, to the battlefields of World War One and beyond. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by CG Buswell. Each book will feature different Scottish food and a favourite meal. Read the first chapter for free.

    How To Make Lamb Hot Pot

    1). Pre-heat oven to 180C or Gas Mark 4.

    2). Lightly cook the vegetables, garlic and rosemary in 50g of butter. Then remove from the pan and set aside.

    3). Melt the remaining butter in the pan and brown the chops on each side. Then remove from the pan.

    4). Add the white wine. Boil and reduce until almost dry.

    5). Add the stock and bring to a boil. Place the chops into a shallow braising dish and cover with the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper.

    6). Lay the sliced overlapping potatoes onto the chops, pour over the stock, and place into oven for 1 hour. Be sure to baste the potatoes every 15 minutes.

    The book The Complete Book of Mince has a vegetarian lamb hot pot recipe.
