• 1 med. sized onion, chopped
  • 4 tbsp dried cranberries, chopped
  • 4 tbsp dried prunes, chopped
  • Half a tin of vacuum packed chestnuts, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 slices stale bread, blitzed into breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 450g turkey mince
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Glug of brandy
  • Olive oil
  • 5/6 fresh sage leaves, chopped
  • A few sprigs of fresh thyme, chopped
  • A sprig of fresh rosemary, chopped


  • STEP 1
    Put the dried fruit and chestnuts into a bowl and add a glug of brandy. Leave to marinate for at least 2/3 hours, but preferably overnight.
  • STEP 2
    Add the turkey mince, breadcrumbs and chopped fresh herbs to the fruit, chestnut and brandy mixture. Mix well.
  • STEP 3
    Heat the oil in a frying pan and gently fry the onions until soft and translucent (add the chopped garlic when onions nearly translucent). Leave to cool.
  • STEP 4
    Add the cooled fried onions and garlic to the turkey mince mixture, then add the egg and salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • STEP 5
    You can either shape the stuffing mix into balls and cook in the oven (around Gas Mark 6) for 30-40 mins (or until done) or put the mixture into a greased oven dish and cook for around 45-50 mins (or until cooked).
