    Stove-top sage and onion stuffing

    • Christmas
    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 40 minutes
    • Total time: 45 minutes

    Serves: 6-8


    30g unsalted butter
    2 medium onions, roughly chopped
    450g Waitrose British gourmet pork sausagemeat
    6 sage leaves, finely chopped
    handful flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped, plus extra to serve
    150g soft white breadcrumbs
    250ml fresh chicken stock 


    1. Melt the butter in a non-stick frying pan, add the onions and cook gently for 5-10 minutes, until softened. Add the sausagemeat, turn up the heat a little and cook for about 20 minutes, gently breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until golden.

    2. Add the herbs and breadcrumbs, season and stir to combine. Pour over the stock, stir together, then flatten the mixture in the pan. Turn down the heat and cook for 5-10 minutes, until the liquid has been absorbed and there‚Äôs a crust on the bottom. (If your frying pan is ovenproof, you can brown the top under a hot grill, for about 3-5 minutes, too.) Serve scattered with extra chopped parsley.
