This is an alternative to stuffing and is delicious with roast pork or chicken. Serves 4 -6 as a side dish


230g / 8oz breadcrumbs

56g / 2oz suet

56g / 2oz oatmeal

284ml / 1/2 pint milk

1 onion

2 tsps sage and marjoram or thyme OR mixed herbs

1 or 2 eggs for consistency

Salt and pepper



  1. Chop and boil the onion till transparent.

  2. Boil the milk and pour onto the breadcrumbs and oatmeal and leave to soak. Add a little more milk if mixture is too stiff.

  3. Mix in the suet, onion, herbs, seasoning and beat in the egg(s). You want a "cake mix" consistency.

  4. Place the mixture in an overproof dish (I usually use a Pyrex souffle dish) and bake for about 45 minutes at 180°C / 360°F / Gas Mark 4.
