Why bother with packet stuffing when it is so easy to do yourself? My nan used to make a bowl of this lovely homemade mixed herb and onion stuffing for each family member every Christmas. This recipe has been passed down through the generations and I’ve now passed it on to my children. I make it whenever I do a roast and it’s a must for Christmas Dinner. It really does taste and smell amazing and literally takes minutes to make.
Nan’s Mixed Herb & Onion Stuffing Recipe (serves 3-4)
2-3 slices of bread for breadcrumbs
1 small chopped onion
1 tablespoon of suet
Mixed herbs (I used about 5g of a supermarket value brand)
1. Turn your bread into breadcrumbs in a blender.
2. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
3. Add a splash of milk to bind.
(Use a little more milk so that it sticks together if you want to make into stuffing balls).
4. Lightly pack into a greased ovenproof dish.
5. Cook for 20-30 mins at 180 degrees.
Gluten-Free, Dairy-free, Vegetarian Stuffing Recipe
You can, of course, use gluten-free bread and suet, vegetable suet and/or dairy-free milk to turn it into a free-from recipe.
I make it using vegetable suet, Alpro Rice Milk and sometimes gluten -free bread and find no difference in the taste once cooked.
