Hog’s Pudding-West Country

This hog's pudding is actually a West country haggis; it is usually based on buckwheat groats and filled into ox casings or other large diameter casings. It can be made with meat or pluck (heart, liver and lungs). Some recipes include pork meat and fat, suet, bread, and oatmeal or pearl barley and the sausage is known as ‘Groats pudding’. It is similar to a white pudding, but it is much spicier than white pudding. The sausage is usually around two inches in diameter.
