January 25 marks Robbie Burns Day, so if you're ready to celebrate with a day of haggis and tatties (don't worry, we'll explain later), then the right recipe will surely make your night.

With a combination of meat, whiskey and more meat, a Burns Supper (often held on the same day) celebrates the life of poet Robert Burns. Traditionally, people in Scotland gather to eat, drink and even toast to a plate of haggis (a sheep's heart, lungs and liver), before cutting it.

To make things a little more tastier, we've gathered some traditional Robbie Burns Day recipes, including starters, mains and desserts. And of course, we even included a drink.
