Stuffing MAIN

Ingredients Required

250g Onion, chopped
35g Unsalted butter
1 clove Garlic, finely chopped
1 Bay leaf
1 sprig Thyme leaves, chopped
400g Brown bread
15g Sage leaves
15g Parsley leaves
3 pinches Sea salt
3 pinches Freshly ground black pepper
2 Eggs, whole, medium, organic/ free-range
1 Egg yolk, medium, organic/ free-range

Cooking Method

Pre-heat your oven to 180°C.

In a medium saucepan covered with a lid, on a medium heat, sweat the onions in the butter for 5 minutes until they are soft and cooked through. Stir in the garlic, bay and thyme and continue to cook for a further 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.

In a food processor, blitz the bread, sage and parsley to a coarse breadcrumb.

In a large bowl, mix together the cooled onion mixture with the breadcrumbs and season with the salt and pepper.

Mix in the eggs and yolk until you have an even mixture. Divide this into 4 ramekins or a shallow terrine mould and bake for 10-15 minutes until the top is caramelised and the centre is hot.

Serve straight from the oven to the table.

Note: If you fancy trying to make this recipe with Gluten free bread, you may not need all the eggs as this bread will absorb the moisture differently.
