IT'S PIE TREASON; Our Scotch pastry faces a de-grease in popularity.
THE latest fast food craze is a slap in the face for pie-eyed Scots.
To the horror of traditionalists and football fans, soggy, greasy pies are out and "healthier" pies are in.
Even the classic Scotch mutton mutton, flesh of mature sheep prepared as food (as opposed to the flesh of young sheep, which is known as lamb). Mutton is deep red with firm, white fat. In Middle Eastern countries it is a staple meat, but in the West, with the exception of Great Britain, Australia, pie has been transformed into a new low-fat variety.

There is even the Doggie Roll, which consists of a hot dog, mustard and relish in pastry, or The Boma, a beef burger and relish in a pie.
But if anyone thinks it's all just pie in the sky and the idea of a healthy pasty won't take off in Scotland, then think again.
Mr Hines added: "We weren't sure what kind of reaction our pies were going to get because you feel like you're messing about with a national dish.
"But on the whole the reaction has been really good.
"I think people quite like the idea, after all the stories about the notorious Scots diet, that they can finally eat a pie and not worry about it hardening their arteries."
