This is a classic stuffing and I got the recipe from my Granny. She copied it out for me a few years ago, so when I was down at the Farmers’ Market and I saw some sausage meat I knew it was that time again.
This is such a simple recipe with great results. I have recently become a little more friendly with my blender. Some might say too friendly. I just can’t believe how much easier it makes things. When you have poor circulation in the extremities, the thought of chopping an onion into a billion pieces is not enticing.
What you will need
450g sausage meat
1 large onion
1 slice of stale bread
Sage leaves – as much sage as you feel like
Put everything but the sausage meat into the blender until it is finely chopped. Turn out into a bowl and mix the sausage meat in with your hands. Season. At this point, a light turned on in my head and I grated in the zest of a lemon and squeezed in the juice.
You can leave the sausage meat until you need it. Divide into whatever size you please. I whacked mine in the oven next to my Pigs in Blankets. For those who have not a clue, a pig in a blanket is a sausage wrapped in bacon. Preferably smoked bacon. They are possibly the greatest use of a pig I know of.
