Waitrose

Lancashire cheese and Bury black pudding croquettes

‘This recipe is a favourite with our members at Emirates Old Trafford, and easy to recreate at home. Bury black pudding is a Lancashire staple. It’s been sold at Bury Market for over 150 years, and as 2014 is Lancashire County Cricket Club's 150th anniversary, it seemed a great ingredient to create a starter with.’

Nic Ashurst, Head Chef, Emirates Old Trafford

Ingredients

100g Waitrose Dewlay Creamy Lancashire Cheese, grated
250g cold mashed potato
80g Bury or other black pudding, cut into small dice
1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
1 shallot, finely diced
50g plain flour, plus a little extra for dusting
1 essential Waitrose egg, beaten
100g Cooks’ Ingredients Panko Breadcrumbs
4-5 tbsp oil
75g pea shoots or lamb’s lettuce to garnish

Method

1. Place the cheese, potato, black pudding, mustard, shallot and flour in a bowl and mix to combine well.

2. With flour-dusted hands, mould the mixture into 12 x 5cm croquettes. Dust with flour, then dip in the beaten egg, followed by the breadcrumbs to coat completely.

3. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Shallow-fry the croquettes in 2 batches, turning occasionally, for 3-4 minutes until crisp and golden brown all over. Remove from the pan and drain on kitchen paper.

4. Place the croquettes on a plate, garnish with pea shoots or lamb’s lettuce and serve with a chutney of your choice, such as Waitrose Rhubarb, Apple & Ginger Chutney.
