  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and very finely chopped
  • 115 g white breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon dried sage
  • 100 g blue cheese
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6.
  2. Score the belly of pork well and rub with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and place on a board, fat-side down.
  3. Mix the onion, breadcrumbs, sage and cheese together, adding a little hot water to help it bind.
  4. Spread the cheese mixture over the pork and roll up to enclose the filling. Tie with kitchen string to secure the roll.
  5. Place in a roasting tin join side up and place in the centre of the oven and roast for 30 minutes.
