You can’t have a roast bird without stuffing. I have tried long and hard to find plastic free ready-made but it eludes me so now I make my own… heres how…
First I got the recipes and they all call for breadcrumbs. Breadcrumbs what? How? Where do I get plastic free crumbs from?Any smart buggers out there can keep their sarcastic comments to themselves.
Google time later and I can tell you its easy – stale bread + food processor or cheese grater and they can be kept in the freezer so you always have some on hand.
Actually what I did is put some not really stale wholemeal bread buns, plastic free from the bakers, in the oven, dried them out and crumbled them up.
Ok now its time for that really good stuffing.
This is a recipe
1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 dollop of olive oil
Some fresh sage, finely chopped – from the garden
80g/3oz fresh white breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten – bought in a cardboard box refilled at the cheese stall, Huddersfield Market
I had no scales so I guessed the amounts. Fried the onions, used an egg, some oil and added an egg to bind it all together. Shoved it in the oven at god knows what heat. Served with bird….. and it was really good.
I will never buying stuffing again.
