Fantasic as part of the meal - so much more than just a stuffing for the turkey.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 ounces fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 ounce parsley, chopped

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, for drizzling

Directions

  1. Fry onions in the butter. Stir in nuts; fry until golden.
