1 onion, diced
100g sourdough, broken into small chunks
100g whole dried apricots, sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
a small bunch of parsley, chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
100g peeled and cooked chestnuts, roughly chopped
sea salt flakes
freshly ground black pepper
½ tsp dried thyme
400g sausage meat (about 6 sausages), roughly torn into chunks
Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas mark 6
Heat the butter in a large non-stick pan over a medium heat and cook the onion until softened. Tip into a large mixing bowl along with all the other ingredients, using a fork to combine.
Lightly grease a roasting tin and bake the stuffing mixture in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes until cooked through and golden brown. If the stuffing is browning too quickly, cover loosely with some foil.
