Sage is truly the ‘Christmas herb’ and today being Christmas Eve I would like to share my recipe for Sage and Lemon Stuffing. This is a moist, well-flavoured stuffing just right to stuff chicken or turkey.
You will need:
1 onion, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, very finely chopped
1-2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1/2 cup chopped fresh sage leaves
1 egg yolk
salt and pepper
4 slices stale bread, crumbled
Cook your onion and celery in the butter in a covered pot for 3 – 5 minutes without browning. You just want to bring out the flavour. Now, remove from the heat and add the remaining ingredients – mix well. Your stuffing is ready to be used. – Enjoy!
I hope your Christmas is a very happy one!
