Belfast Black Pudding Bites

Belfast Black Pudding Bites

Popcorn Pudding

Black pudding in a crunchy shell. Smooth, soft, spicy centre. Can’t be good for you…

Wrong! The word is out; black pudding is good for you! So we’re sharing a wee recipe for some bite-sized, super-snacks to keep you going, at the gym*, in the kitchen, or during a marathon … beer session!

*Not advised. Don’t trust any nutritional advice from this Scullery!

This recipe came about to use up some left-over pudding after making some delicious Black Pudding Scotch eggs (that recipe is on it’s way). Here we’ve used our own SculleryMade Belfast Black Pudding, Black Lava which has a blend of chilli, smoked paprika, coffee and cocoa. If you can’t get some of our pudding in your hands, we’d suggest using a soft black pudding as a substitute, or mixing a solid pudding with equal portions of sausage meat and seasoning with chilli and smoked paprika.

These are quick and easy to make and with Superbowl Sunday just around the corner, they’ll make the perfect half-time super-snack!
