Serves 2-4

Ingredients

  • Approx 8 g Fresh Sage Leaves, (20 or so leaves)
  • 225 g (8 oz) White Breadcrumbs
  • 1 medium White Onion
  • ½ tsp White Pepper
  • ½ tsp Salt or Low Salt
  • 50g (2 oz) Shredded Beef Suet (Atora or similar)
  • 1 medium Egg
  • Butter or margarine for coating your serving dish

Method

Step 1

Finely chop the onion and simmer in a small saucepan of boiling water for approx 10 minutes until softened.

Whilst the onion is simmering, continue with the steps below.

Step 2

Using a food processor, put the fresh Sage leaves into the grinder on ¾ speed and grind until a tealeaf texture is achieved.

Step 3

Put your white bread into the food processor and blend until a breadcrumb consistency is achieved.

Step 4

Place your breadcrumbs in a large mixing bowl and add the white pepper, salt and suet.

Step 5

When the onion is softened, use a skimmer/strainer spoon to remove all of the onion from the saucepan and add it directly to the breadcrumb mix. Also add approximately 3-4 tbsp of the onion water but not all.

Step 6

Add 1 lightly beaten egg to the breadcrumb mix and mix all the ingredients together.

Step 7

Butter the edges and bottom of a suitable sized oven proof serving dish and spoon your stuffing mixture in, creating a flat even surface.

Step 8

Cook in a pre-heated oven for approximately 30-40 minutes at 200° c until the topping is crisp but not burnt.
