Vegetarian chestnut and sage stuffing

This is an American style stuffing, the kind you might find at Thanksgiving. It is, however, perfect as a side dish at Christmas.

Method

This stuffing has a rather surprising ingredient which is the secret to its success and that is vegetarian haggis! It’s a delicious and all natural mix of pulses, seeds and vegetables which gives the dish it’s delicious depth of flavour.

 

Pre-heat oven to 170°c.

 

Butter an oven proof dish lightly. Melt the butter in a large frying pan and cook the onion and dried sage until soft but not coloured. Set aside to cool. In a mixing jug mix the eggs and stock together. Set aside.

 

In a large bowl mix the breadcrumbs, fresh sage and chestnuts and then crumble in the haggis. Stir to combine and then add the onions. Pour in the egg and stock and mix well before pouring into the baking dish. Bake for 30-40 minutes until golden brown. Allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving
