Clapshot is a traditional Scottish dish that originated in Orkney and may be served with haggis, cheese, raw vegetables salad, oatcakes, mince, sausages or any other cooked meat. Clapshot is created by the combined mashing of potatoes and swede turnips ("neeps and tatties") with the addition of chives, butter or dripping, salt and pepper; onions in some versions. Some nuts, heavy cream and/or milk can also be added in order to make it tastier. This dish is usually served hot and nowadays, it can be easily found ready-made in supermarkets.
