Since we’ve started adding Clonakilty Blackpudding to our macaroni and cheese, we’ve taken treat night to a whole new level!


1 tbsp of vegetable oil

200g Clonakilty Blackpudding

500g macaroni

60g unsalted butter

60g plain flour

700ml warm milk

200g grated strong cheddar

50g grated Parmesan

40g grated mozzarella

10g chopped parsley

Handful of toasted breadcrumbs


1. Heat a frying pan and add the oil. Crumble in the Clonakilty Blackpudding, breaking it up between your fingers.

2. Fry until crispy and put aside on a plate lined with kitchen paper.

3. Boil the macaroni in plenty of salted water for 8-9 minutes, drain and set aside. Add a splash of oil or butter to stop it sticking together.

4. In a nonstick saucepan on a medium heat, melt the butter and add the flour.

5. With a small whisk, cook the flour and butter together for a few minutes until the colour darkens a little.

6. Add the milk, a little by little, and continuously whisk. Do not worry about lumps.

7. Once all the milk is added, continue to whisk until all the lumps are cooked out.

8. Add the grated cheese and stir until you have a smooth sauce.

9. Add the macaroni and season with a little salt.

10. Serve up the macaroni and top each portion with toasted breadcrumbs, parsley and Clonakilty Blackpudding.
