How to make apple and onion stuffing

Your rating: None
Perfect for stuffing a chicken but equally appetising cooked separately - here's a quick and effective way to make your own stuffing without having to resort to pre-made packets from the supermarket!
What you'll need: 
5 slices white bread
2 x medium apples, cored
1 onion, peeled and quartered
Salt & Pepper
Food processor
1 tablespoon Worchestershire sauce
Using the food processor, whizz up the bread until you have fine breadcrumbs and then set aside
Place the apples, onion and sage into the food processor and whizz until small chunks - don't overdo this otherwise you'll create quite a mush!
Combine all the ingrediants, add the worchestershire sauce and the salt and pepper and then "kneed" together until you have mixed everything thoroughly. You should now have a substance which you can shape into balls to stuff a chicken or simply place into a cake tin to cook - it takes around 40 minutes.
The perfect stuffing! I generally use about 1 quarter to stuff a chicken and the rest, I cook separately, serving to one side of a roast chicken.
If cooking separately, add a little olive oil to the caketin first and add extra salt on top of the stuffing once you've placed it inside. It'll take aroun 45 minutes to cook, with a little crust on the top.
