Tatties

Tatties

Apparently tatties, slang for baked potatoes, are huge in Scotland. The awning at The Baked Potato Shop in Edinburgh reads, “Hottest Tattie in Town.”

Now that’s a slogan that really caught my attention.

While there just wasn’t time to investigate in Edinburgh, a few days later we lunched on baked tatties in Speyside. Perfectly warm and satisfying after an 11km hike.

Toppings range from English baked beans, cheese and bacon, to a simple swab of butter.

What’s in your lunch sack today?
