Traditional Stuffing

Try adding cranberries to this stuffing before placing in the oven; it can be served as a side dish if you prefer not to stuff your turkey.


  • 250g fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 150g butter
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tblsp chopped sage
  • 1 tblsp fresh thyme
  • 4 tblsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. To make the stuffing, melt the butter in a large frying pan and add the onion. Sauté the onion for 3-4 minutes until softened and translucent but not coloured.
  3. In the meantime, put the breadcrumbs and herbs into a large bowl, ensuring the herbs are mixed through. Season to taste.
  4. Pour the heated butter and onion over the breadcrumb and herb mixture and place in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
  5. If you are using this stuffing for the turkey please ensure the stuffing is cooled down before placing in the turkey cavity.
