  • 1 tsp butter, heaped
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 eating apples
  • 225 g pork sausage meat
  • 100 g fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 1 sprig thyme, leaves removed
  • 1 pinches grated nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 0.5 lemons, juice


Heat the butter in a saucepan. Add the onions and soften over a low heat without colouring. Stir in the apples and continue cooking until they are just beginning to lose their shape. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside to cool.

Stir in the sausage meat, breadcrumbs, thyme, nutmeg and parsley. Squeeze in the lemon juice and beat well for about a minute to blend everything together.

Use this stuffing to fill a turkey before roasting, or you can bake it separately in an ovenproof dish. Bake at 180C/gas4 for about 25 minutes and serve hot with roast meats.
