In Scotland, white pudding is also known as mealy pudding and does not always take the form of a sausage. It consists of suet, oatmeal, onions and spices.
White pudding may be cooked whole or cut into slices and fried or grilled. It is an important feature of the traditional Irish breakfast. White pudding is also served battered at chip shops in Scotland as an alternative to the fish in fish and chips.
