200g potato (diced)

190g Clonakilty Blackpudding (crumbled)

3 spring onions (finely sliced)

½ tbsp English mustard

25g plain flour (seasoned)

2 medium eggs

100g breadcrumbs

500ml groundnut oil


1. Place the diced potato in a pan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10 minutes or until the potato is tender. Drain and mash and allow to cool.

2. In a large bowl, mix the cold mashed potato, Clonakilty Blackpudding, spring onions and mustard together until combined. Season well.

3. Divide the mixture equally into 8 and then shape into cylinders with your hand.

4. Dip each croquette first into the seasoned flour, then the beaten egg and finally the breadcrumbs. Cover with clingfilm and place in the fridge for 30 minutes until ready to cook.

5. Heat the oil in a deep saucepan and gently fry the croquettes in batches for 4 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden and crisp.

6. Serve with a sauce of your choice.
