Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then soften the onions for 10 mins with the pan covered. Put the bread and herbs into a food processor and pulse until you have herby breadcrumbs. Stir into the onion pan along with the lemon zest and juice and plenty of seasoning. Set aside 250g to stuff the turkey, then press the remainder into a well buttered baking tin or dish, about 20 x 30cm, or use 2 smaller tins if that’s all that you have.
  2. Wrap half a bacon rasher around each sausage. Score the stuffing into 8 rectangles, then sit a sausage on top of each. Cover with foil and cook for 20 mins. Uncover, then roast for 20 mins more or until the sausages and bacon are golden and the stuffing golden and sizzling.

It lost in taste test versus Paxo... but the kids had a vote, and the adults did prefer the 'no additives' vibe of this recipe. Democracy is so overrated!

Made it without the meat as we have a veggie in the family. Consistency was a bit loose and fluffy but the taste was fantastic and everyone commented on how tasty it was. Would def do again.
