2teaspoonsdried mixed herbs
500gplain pork sausage meatensure gluten, egg, nut and dairy free, as necessary
Preheat your oven to 220C / 200C / gas mark 7 / 425F and grease an oven tray enough to hold all the stuffing balls.
Drizzle about 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a saucepan. Add the diced onion and put the lid on. Cook over a low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft but not brown.
When the onions are ready, tip into a bowl and add the sausage meat, herbs, salt and pepper and stir thoroughly.
Divide the mixture into 12 and shape into balls. Place in your greased tin(s) and cook for 20-25 minutes or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
(1) To cook this all together in an oven dish, simply follow the recipe above, but instead of shaping into balls and placing on an oven tray, lightly grease a deep sided oven dish, roughly 15 x 24cm (6 x 10inches) and put all the mixture into the dish, squash down lightly and cook for 25-30 minutes, or until brown on the top and cooked all the way through. (2) To cook this stuffed into a turkey, chicken or duck, prepare the stuffing as above, but instead of shaping into balls, stuff into the neck cavity of a turkey or the main cavity of a chicken or duck and cook according to your usual stuffed turkey or chicken recipe – ensuring the stuffing is cooked and piping hot all the way through.Nutrition information is approximate and meant as a guideline only.
