Cranberry Stuffing Balls

Since I found this recipe Christmas is just not complete without our cranberry stuffing balls they are really good with your Christmas roast, covered in gravy, Mmm. I use the left over fresh breadcrumbs from making my Christmas pudding. I get a $2 bag from the local bakery of day old bread which is perfect for crumbing and seriously the bag is a 20kg flour bag!

1 tbsp Olive oil
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tbsp sage, chopped
50gm butter, melted

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius
  • Heat the oil in a pan an fry the onion and garlic until soft, remove to a bowl
  • Add the breadcrumbs, cranberries, egg, sage and butter.
  • Season to taste
  • Mix well and roll into 16 balls
  • Place on a baking try and bake for 15 - 20 minutes until browned
  • I often make a double batch and then freeze them before baking them and defrost them as I need them.
