We think it's really worth the little bit of extra effort to make your own because it tastes so much better than anything you can buy in the shops. It's meat-free so suitable for vegetarians, but still so full of flavour. What's a roast dinner without stuffing?! Make extra for Christmas dinner - everyone will want seconds! This recipe takes around 55 mins to make and serves around 6 people. Any leftovers of this sage and onion stuffing can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
