SIMPLE START : Sage & Onion Stuffing


I love taking requests for recipes, so when Allan Crowley contacted me through my WeightWatcher leader's Facebook page to ask  if I could come up with a tasty stuffing recipe for a Simple Start or Filling & Healthy day, I was happy to take up the challenge!
This recipe is really simple and very tasty-just what you need to round off a delicious roast dinner-all of which is possible on the plan!

***


YOU WILL NEED:

WeightWatchers Brown Danish Bread
(It must be the 1pp per slice variety)
Onions
Eggs
Dried sage & thyme
Black pepper
reduced fat soy sauce
fresh basil leaves
lemon zest

Portion guideline- 6 slices bread, 2 onions, 2 eggs, 2 teaspoons soy sauce, 2 teaspoons dried herbs, zest of one lemon makes 8 stuffing balls or enough for about 4 portions

*




Toast 4 slices of WeightWatchers Brown Danish Bread.
Allow to cool.



Chop up a couple of onions and fry gently in a little Frylight oil. Season generously with dried sage and thyme and a splash of low salt soy sauce.



Pop a lid on the pan and sweat the onions until soft. This takes around 10 minutes.



Blitz the toast in a food processor to make fine breadcrumbs, then add the cooked onion and blitz again until it forms a paste.



Tip into a bowl and add some chopped basil and the zest of one lemon.



Mix with 2 eggs and breadcrumbs made from 2 more fresh slices of WeightWatchers Brown Danish bread.



Wet your hands to roll the mixture into stuffing balls, or press into a small oven dish using a fork.
Bake at 200C/400F/Gas6 for 20-30 minutes until crisp and golden.



Serve alongside a traditional roast dinner as a delicious accompaniment.

TIPS

Try adding mushrooms to the onions and fry before blitzing.
*
Experiment with different herbs and seasonings such as garlic, parsley, orange rind.
*
You could shape into sausage shapes to make your own vegetarian sausages!
