These Scottish Recipes will bring back memories for those who miss Scotland. I hope these bring you a taste of home and help keep Scotland close to your heart.
If you’re fortunate enough to have been to Scotland, or better yet, used to live there and now live elsewhere, these 11 authentic, and simple Scottish recipes are for you.
(Anyone care to guess why I chose ELEVEN? Ha ha! Freeeeeeedoooooom! Inside joke for Scots.)

Ex-pats will know what I’m talking about, but I also know there will be some travelers out there who have had a Scottish meal, or particular food that they will crave upon returning home. I am always trying to recreate recipes from my travels, but most of the Scottish recipes here, are the ones I grew up eating.
WARNING: beware of which Scottish recipes you find on the internet. Some sites with Scottish names are simply NOT Scottish at all. I am horrified at some of the recipes that I see for Scottish dishes–it’s very sad that people are making them and thinking they’re authentic.
Here’s a classic Scottish soup: Scotch broth.
Luckily, Scottish food is quite simple and so are the recipes. Remember, these are just 11 recipes from my site. I have many more and am constantly adding to the list (I’ve since added a few “bonus” recipes” below! To see all of the Scottish recipes on my site, simply type “Scottish” in the search bar at the top.
Edited January 2019: I’ve just added a list of Scottish recipes for a Burns Night Supper!
Consequently, one of the reasons I started this page is to dispel the myth of “bad British food” and the stereotype of Scots only eating haggis and drinking whisky. I hope this post helps me reach my goal and dispel some of those myths. Scottish fish and chips are on a whole other level, and that’s just one example!
Since I’m in Scotland right now, I thought it would be nice to share these with you so that you can enjoy some of the dishes I’ll be enjoying here (sometimes on a daily basis)! I hope you love them, too!
