Black Pudding Sausage Rolls

Crispy flaky pastry encasing a delicious blend of pork sausage meat and Stornoway Black Pudding. Once you’ve made these Black Pudding Sausage Rolls, it will be hard to return to your basic version!

Everyone will be asking you to make them for the next celebration where party food is required. Or you’ll start finding reasons to make a batch so you have leftovers for lunch the next day.

I recommend using Charles Macleod Stornoway Black Pudding – it’s my favourite from the island and I always stock up whenever I’m there. Alternatively you can also purchase from various stockists within the UK.

Recipe Notes

Pork Sausage Meat – I can usually find this in Tesco. I normally buy a few and freeze them, for use when I want to make the sausage rolls.

Black Pudding – you can purchase this, freeze as long as you use (cook it) within 3 months. An essential component for the Black Pudding Sausage Rolls.

Haggis – a great alternative to black pudding if you want a change or aren’t a huge fan of it. Makes Haggis Sausage Rolls instead!

Sesame seeds are NOT essential either, I just like how they look.


Can I use garlic paste instead of cloves? Yes – use 1 teaspoon garlic paste

I don’t have wholegrain mustard, can I use English mustard? English mustard is hotter than wholegrain, so I would reduce the quantity by half (unless you want the added heat), but Dijon would be a good alternative.

Can I substitute the caramelised onion for anything else? Any sweet chutney would be suitable – so anything you have available (sweet onion relish, chilli jam etc.). Ideally you’re looking for something to add a little sweetness to the mixture.

Can I substitute oregano for another herb? Mixed herbs would be fine. I like the taste of oregano, but if you have something else you’d prefer – use it. The fresh parsley on it’s own would be suitable.

Can I use milk instead of egg wash to glaze the pastry before cooking? Yes you can, but it won’t have the perfectly golden finish that egg wash provides. So although you can, don’t expect the same results.

Is the fresh parsley essential? No – any herbs are purely optional. So don’t feel you need to buy fresh parsley solely for this recipe (although I use it in lots of my recipes). It provides a wonderfully fresh garnish to various pasta dishes.
