Per croquette 165kcals, 10.7g fat (3.5g saturated), 11.2g carbs (1g sugars), 5.7g protein, 1.3g fibre, 0.161g sodium

5 minutes
35 minutes
Difficulty: Medium
Serves: Makes 16
200g Glenmór black pudding
300g Mash Direct mashed potato, at room temperature
100g Gruyère, grated
2tsp wholegrain mustard
Salt and black pepper
60g plain flour
3 eggs, beaten
100g breadcrumbs
Vegetable oil, for frying
To serve:
Apple sauce


1. Turn the grill on to a high heat and cook the black pudding until hot throughout but not too crisp. Set aside until completely cool, then crumble into small pieces.

2. Place the mashed potato in a bowl and stir in the black pudding, Gruyère and mustard, mashing with a fork to combine everything well. Season with black pepper. Place the mixture in the fridge and chill for one hour.

3. Divide the potato mixture into 16 even portions and roll into balls.

4. Place the flour in a wide, shallow bowl and season with salt and black pepper. Beat the eggs in a second bowl and place the breadcrumbs in a third.

5. One at a time, roll the balls in the flour, followed by the egg and finally the breadcrumbs. Roll each ball in the egg a second time, then the breadcrumbs once again. Place the coated balls on a plate and chill for 15 minutes.

6. Heat the oil in a deep fryer to a temperature of 180˚C, or fill a deep saucepan with oil to a depth of 5cm and place over a high heat until a breadcrumb dropped into the oil begins to sizzle immediately.

7. Working in small batches to avoid dropping the temperature of the oil, fry the croquettes for 3-4 minutes or until crisp and golden, gently flipping them over with a slotted spoon halfway through. Drain on a plate lined with kitchen paper. Allow the oil 30-40 seconds after each batch to come back up to temperature.

8. Serve the croquettes immediately with apple sauce for dipping. Alternatively, allow to cool completely, then store in the fridge for up to two days. Reheat in a preheated oven at 180˚C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4 for 20 minutes or until piping hot throughout.
