Black Pudding with Apples   HT MC Irish 50mins


Serves 4      Hot   Pork   Fruit   Vegetables  Main Course    Eggless   British  Ireland  Europe



4 Potatoes, peeled

2 tbsp Vegetable Oil

Salt and Black Pepper

12 x 2.5cm/1-inch thick slices Black Pudding, quartered

100g/4oz Mushrooms, thickly sliced

25g/1oz Butter

2 Apples, peeled, cored and each cut into 8 wedges

1 tbsp Wine Vinegar




1. Preheat the oven to 140C, 275F, Gas mark 1. Grate the potatoes into a large bowl of cold water. Drain well then squeeze out as much water as you can using a clean tea-towel.


2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan until hot. Divide the grated potatoes into 4 portions then drop each portion into the oil, seasoning with salt and black pepper and pressing each portion to flatten into patties. Sauté for 10 minutes, turning once, until golden brown and tender. You may have to do this in two batches if your frying pan isn’t big enough.


3. Transfer onto an ovenproof plate and place in the oven to keep warm. This will also continue to cook them ensuring they are tender all the way through.


4. Add a little more oil to the frying pan and heat until hot.  Add the black pudding slices and mushrooms and sauté over a medium heat for 5-10 minutes, turning from time to time.


5. Meanwhile, heat the butter in another frying pan, add the apples and sauté over a medium/high heat for about 5 minutes, turning from time to time, until golden brown on all sides.


6. Add the vinegar to the apples, bring to the boil and season with salt and pepper.


7. To Serve - Place the potato patties onto a serving platter, top with the black pudding and mushroom mixture then garnish with the apples and pour over the juices from the apples. Serve immediately.
