What shall I do with my black pudding?

(35 Posts)

I've just got back from a long weekend in Scotland, and have brought with me a giant black pudding from a recommended butchers.

What are some exciting things I can do with it?

Slices roasted in the oven, put in a wholemeal toasted sandwich with sausage, mushrooms and brown sauce. As served by the caff near the old Pools building near Woodside in Birkenhead.

Angel that sounds gorgeous! Definitely going to give that a go.

I love courgette, chili and black pudding pasta. The black pudding has to have been previously cooked and allowed to go cold otherwise it doesn't crumble properly and is too gooey, I usually use what's left over after Sunday brunch.

Cut a courgette or two into matchsticks
Finely chop about quarter of a chili per person (I buy it chopped and frozen)
Crumble or finely dice about a slice and a half/two slices of black pudding per person

Fry the courgette in olive oil, add chili after a bit. When the courgette is nearly cooked stir in the black pudding, allow to fry some more for a couple of minutes. Stir into pasta.

There's something amazing about the mixture of the bitter-sweet of courgette, umami of black pudding and the heat of chili. It's one of those synergistic things.

The white pudding was a present given to us a while back, so it's still in the fridge, unopened. Can I do do different things with a white pudding than I would with a black?

Sorry to have upset you Honkhonk, but it has to be that way.

Mini, that's the wrongest thing I've read on MN this evening. Amongst a whole world of wrongness!

Well, OP, if you'd have mentioned that sooner, I'd have been round aaages ago. How are you cooking the white pudding?

(I know. Living vicariously...)

http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2003/nov/16/foodanddrink.shopping Fantastic Nigel Slater recipe for sausage, parsnip and black pudding baked together.

Our local posh deli does black pudding scotch eggs and black pudding sausage rolls.

Not very imaginative but the only way to eat it is to slice it and stick it under a very hot grill with some bacon until they both crisp up and serve it with bubble and squeak and loads of Worcestershire sauce.

White pudding is the evil thigh of the devil. Never part with money on open your mouth for it.

Not so keen on white pudding I must say, but it would do in a pudding emergency wink

I have a white pudding as well ;-)

I like lamb chops topped with black pudding and a semi sweet cherry sauce. Serve it up with nice steamed veg and it goes down a treat.

Tonight it's been mixed with some blue cheese, stuffed into big portobello mushroom caps, studded with pine nuts, and served alongside a selection of Tesco Tapas.

Mix with sausage meat and make into a sausage roll. Yummy.

Mango chutney is a surprisingly good substitute for broon sauce on a black pudding sarnie.

I love it pan fried with piccalilli. It's got me a few odd looks, but it's so good.

I met my pal for a cup of tea this morning and MelanieCheeks, I hold you fully responsible for my actions.

A friend did the most delicious beef stew and then stirred chunks of black pudding through the stew at the end. It was amazing!

Oooh that sounds delicious <updates shopping list for tomorrow>

Black pudding and beetroot salad: for each person you're serving, you need two slices of black pudding, four little sweet fired beetroot, half a standard sized pack of feta plus salad leaves (darker ones are best) and balsamic vinegar. Cook the black pudding slices then just roughly chop it, the beetroot and the feta, fling over the salad leaves & add a touch of balsamic to dress smile
