White Pudding with Oatmeal
White pudding is a sausage popular in Ireland, Scotland and some parts of England. It consists of beef suet, oatmeal, and leeks or onions. If blood was added, the sausage could be called black pudding which is a blood sausage. In many cases it is not stuffed into casings becoming a breakfast dish which is served with bacon, fried eggs and often with black pudding.
