Such was the case on our trip to Scotland, with memories such as the kilt-clad Scotsman standing in the field playing the bagpipes as our bus drove by and the magnificent stained glass in the museum in Glasgow. And the best comfort food from there turned out to be collops.
A dear friend’s mother was from Scotland, and she still had quite a thick brogue and a laugh you could hear around the block, so I checked with her about the recipe. She said it was good, and that you could use ground round steak for an easier and less expensive dish. She also advised using more onion than my recipe included, as the onion gravy was what made the dish so delicious. I tried to duplicate her recipe and was pleased with the result.
