Bury black pudding and Lancashire cheese 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.’
