Crispy black pudding dumplings

My freezer had a bit of a moment and most of what was in it had to be defrosted and used. Luckily I recently cleaned it and used up most everything but a packet of dumplings defrosted and had to be used.

I wasn’t sure what to do with them and found a recipe for Manti, Turkish dumplings. I read through the recipe but had my own ideas and in the end I used the way they shaped the dumplings. I liked the idea of the soft and the crispy wonton wrappers, they also look quite spectacular.


I had a black pudding from the butchers. I have never had dumplings with black pudding but I thought why not?


Black pudding crispy dumplings 

preparation time 15 minutes 

cooking time 30 minutes 

oven 170C or 340F and 240 or 460F

serves 3, if served as part of a meal allow 4-5 dumplings per person


  • 1 small black pudding
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 onion chopped fine
  • 1 dl or 1/2 cup of cooked, fine diced butternut squash
  • 15 dumplings wrappers
  • eggwhite
  • butter
  • 1 tbsp oil

Break the blackpudding up and mix with the egg yolk and the onion. Line an ovenproof dish with the oil.

Place diced butternut squash and a small amount of black pudding on a dumpling wrapper.




Brush egg white along the edges that you are closing, shape and place in the oven proof dish. Repeat until the dish is full.




Shave butter on top and bake for 25 minutes. Then turn the heat up and remove when the drumpling wrappers are golden and crispy.






I mixed some yoghurt with a crushed garlic clove and served it on the side as a dipping sauce. I was a little nervous as this was a completely new recipe but the black pudding was delicious, especially with the crispy dumpling skin and the garlic sauce. I can’t wait to make this again.


I liked the dumplings so much I decided to bring a plate of hot and crispy dumplings to the lovely Angie’s Fiesta Friday.

      hi Steffi
      Thank you! I did like the blackpudding this way! A nice difference to the usual! Saying that I don’t eat it very often, it is very rich but it worked well with the butternut and the crispy wonton! 🙂 Have a lovely weekend (in the rain!) 🙂

    What’s black pudding? Is it like blood sausage? Btw, this would have been a perfect Halloween appetizer! Next year, then 🙂

      hi Angie
      Yes I believe it is the same thing! It is quite rich and has lots of flavour so this was a great way to get little bites of it! You are right, it does sound like a Halloween dish! 🙂 x

  4. This is another new one for me! I’ve never had this one either, but it looks delectable!
