black pudding sausage rolls
I’m a huge fan of black pudding. I rarely have it but when I do I revel in the spiced, oaty meaty flavour. Lightly crisp from the grill, with a slick of brown sauce it’s perfection.
Clonakilty sent some of their product to try. Their bacon was thin cut and full of flavour. Their sausages were plump and juicy. The black pudding was really good, but different to what I’d had before. Scanning the packaging I realised what; their black pudding is beef. Pretty sure I’d only ever had pork before. What a rich, meaty taste it gives.
How better to show them off than putting them into a sausage roll. Black pudding by itself could be pretty heavy going, so I’ve mixed it with regular pork sausagemeat to calm it down. The addition of a sweet-sharp onion chutney is a great way to balance out the flavours.
I used Clonakilty Ispini sausages, but you could use pork chipolatas if you can’t get these.
Cut them large or small as required to suit your party. I made mine on the large side to go in lunchboxes, but you could make yours more dainty to serve as a canape. Serve large or small, the choice is yours!
Thanks to Clonakilty for the samples.
