Step 1: You will need …
- 750 g sausage meat (optional)
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 3 tsp fresh sage, finely chopped
- 50 g fresh bread crumbs
- 1 egg, beaten
- salt and pepper
- 1 medium saucepan
- 1 wooden spoon
- 1 bowl
Step 2: Sweat the onions
Place the saucepan on a medium heat. Add the oil and onions and stir. Allow them gently sweat down, which will roughly take 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once cooked, remove from the heat.
Step 3: Combine the ingredients
Into the large bowl add the fresh sage, breadcrumbs, sausage meat, onions, beaten egg and season with black pepper and salt. Combine together thoroughly.
Step 4: Set aside to rest and cool
Allow the stuffing to cool and rest until needed.
For a vegetarian stuffing, just leave out the sausage meat.
