Sausage Stuffing Balls

What a great little idea these are; a great way to cook and present your sausage stuffing for Christmas or any roast dinner for that matter. Plus there’s no reason why you can’t experiment with different meats and herbs to fill them. We also highly recommend our Christmas recipe for Devils on Horse Back with Chipotle Honey.

How to make it

  1. Peel the onions and cut the tops off around 2cm down. You can also cut off the other end to leave a nice flat surface (cut this about 1cm up).
  2. Arrange the onions in a roasting tray and drizzle with olive oil, salt & pepper. Roast for around 25mins at 175C.
  3. Once softened, remove from the oven and leave to cool. Once cool, squeeze out the centre of the onions leaving 2 outer layers. Retain the removed onion and chop finely.
  4. Gently fry the chopped onions with breadcrumbs, Chipotle paste and butter until nicely combined and golden (10mins).
  5. Leave to cool slightly, then combine with the sausage meat.
  6. Fill the hole in each onion with this mixture and return to the oven for another 30mins.
  7. If the outer layer is slightly dried out, gently peel this away to reveal a tender layer beneath for serving.
