Traditional New Year's Day Meal
Below is our suggested menu to have after celebrating Hogmanay and to serve as a traditional Scottish New Year's Day Meal for a starter, main and dessert to enjoy on the 1st January.
There are several choices of starters for a traditional Scottish New Year's Day meal, but we at Scottish Recipes favour either Scotch Broth or Spicy Lentil Soup.
There can only be one choice for the main to celebrate after Hogmanay and that is Steak Pie with Skirlie, roast tatties (potatoes) and vegetables such as parsnips, beetroot, green beans and carrots, as seen in the photo above, ideal for soaking up the alcohol from the previous night!
Though the more traditionalist would call it an Ashet Pie, named after the shallow dish it is baked in. They would also serve it with champit tatties and boiled peas.
A hearty warming pudding is needed to set you up for the January cold weather ahead and Clootie Dumpling and custard is ideal for warming you up followed by coffee and pieces of Tablet.

The North-East of Scotland skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out towards Aberdeen, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of Scottish horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.
