Who doesn’t love a classic Sunday roast dinner. I defy you to find anyone who doesn’t love on a Sunday afternoon the smell of a roast in the oven. Juicy meat, crispy potatoes, lashings of gravy and the best accompaniment to me is a stuffing ball.
I am slightly obsessed, I could eat these all day, every day, and who doesn’t love the slight innuendo that comes with saying stuffing ball hahahah!!!
These are also really fun to make and great for kids get involved with.
You could use a normal pack of sausage meat, but I like to buy a pack of 6 sausages and gently squeeze the meat out of the casings. For an additional twist you could chop up some dried apricots or cranberries to add in.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time:30-40 minutes
Serves: This makes about 10 stuffing balls
- 400g sausage meat
- 1 white onion, finely chopped
- 100g stuffing mix or breadcrumbs
- 1 egg
- Dash of Worcestershire sauce
- Flour for dusting
In a large bowl combine the sausage meat, onion, stuffing mix, egg and Worcestershire, along with pinch of salt and pepper. Mix until throughly combined. I find it easier to use my hands.
Cover with cling film and leave to chill in the fridge.
Pre-heat your oven to 200°C.
Remove the stuffing from the fridge, and roll into 15 equal sized balls.
On a plate sprinkle some plain flour, and roll the balls in the flour until they have a thin coating. I then like to toss the balls gently to remove any excess flour.
Place on a baking tray with a little oil and cook in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until they are cooked all the way through and crispy.
These are great the next day in a chicken sandwich… yummy.
