Prep: 20 mins

Light lemon and herb stuffing

Handful of Sage leaves chopped (1 tsp of dried if you can’t get fresh)

20g butter

3 tablespoons of olive oil

1 red onion finely diced

1 tsp Goodalls dried rosemary

1 tsp Goodalls dried thyme

1 tsp Goodalls dried parsley

1 lemon

300g breadcrumbs. Gluten free works well here

Salt and pepper to taste

Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan and add the finely diced onion and dried herbs. On a very low heat  gently simmer for about 10-15 minutes. Be sure they don’t burn as this will lead to a bitter taste in your stuffing. When the onions are soft and translucent, add the juice of one lemon to the mix. Chop the sage finely and add to the breadcrumbs. At this stage add the breadcrumb mixture to pan and mix well. If the mix is still a little too dry add a little more oil.

Add some salt and pepper to taste at this stage.

Cook the stuffing in the oven separate to the bird so it is light and crispy. It needs about 15 minutes at 180°C
