  1. Make the chutney: heat the vinegar and sugar with 1 tbsp cold water, swirling until sugar dissolves. Throw in the onion and cook for 1 min, then add the tomatoes and cook for 3 mins until starting to soften. Turn off the heat and set aside to cool.

  2. Mix the mashed potato and spring onion with some seasoning, then carefully fold in the black pudding. Shape into 4 patties and dust in the flour. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the potato cakes for 3 mins each side until golden. Remove from the pan and keep warm.

  3. Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan, then crack both eggs in and cook how you like them. Serve 2 black pudding cakes per person, topped with a fried egg and a dollop of tomato chutney.

These are glorious. We had them for a light lunch with a couple of ""Burford Browns" .

The black pudding potato cake were a cracking idea. I added a fair bit of chopped flatleaf parsley, and I didn't pay attention to what quantities I was using, but the flavours were delicious. We didn't bother with the chutney or the eggs, we had ours with a pile of garlic mushrooms and some steamed broccoli.

Loved this! Only managed to have one pattie as it was so filling. Perhaps next time I will use a little less sugar in the tomato chutney? it seemed quite sweet

Amazing! I'm going out to buy more black pudding right now.

served with a poached egg instead of fried egg on a bed off rockette salad, with a little bit of balsamic syrup looked and tasted great :-)
