Being in Scotland on Hogmanay is felt only right to make something Scottish-esque last night, but with a bit of a twist! If you can get gluten free black pudding then these are definitely worth making and it’s no hassle either. The apple doesn’t overpower it, you just get a sweetness which works well with the black pudding. If you want to make your own pastry then please do but for easiness I just used bought pastry because I’ve found there is some decent free from pastry out there, I used Jus-Roll but I like the Genius puff pastry too.
200g of gluten free black pudding
1/2 of your roll of pastry (equivalent to 140g)
1 egg, beaten
1 large eating apple, diced
2 taps’s of finely chopped sage
1) Mix together the black pudding, sage, apple and 3/4 of the beaten egg (you will need to keep some for later). Beat
together until it’s all combined but not smooth. I used a mixer but you could do this by hand with strength!
2) Roll the pastry into a rectangle shape remembering that your folding it over to look like a sausage roll. The pastry should be about 4mm thick and it shouldn’t need rolled out to much tbh.
3) Then place your black pudding mix down the middle if the pastry in a sausage shape. Fold over the pastry and seal the edge with some of your egg brushed along it. The brush the rest of the pastry with the egg as well.
4) Place in a pre heated oven at 200º C for 15 mins, the pastry should look golden. Take out and slice into desired size.
