This sage and onion stuffing is absolutely beautiful. Peppery sage and aromatic oregano combined with tender sausage meat. Perfect for a Sunday roast or a festive dinner. 

The default recipe serves one (2 generous sized stuffing balls)


  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 onion, peeled and diced
  • 10g / 2 tbsp dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh sage
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp plain flour
  • 75g sausagemeat


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C / 400F
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and saute for 5-6 minutes until softened. Allow to cool for a few minutes. 
  3. Mix the onions with the remaining ingredients and mix everything together until fully combined. 
  4. Roll the stuffing mixture into balls and then place in the oven for 45 minutes or until fully cooked and steaming hot all the way through. 


  1. You can use dried sage instead of fresh sage if you can’t find any – use around half the amount. 
  2. You can use dried thyme instead of oregano
  3. If you want to make this in advance then make sure to fully cool the onions before mixing with the other ingredients.
