Old Fashioned Savoury Onion Stuffing

Recipe by _Pixie_
READY IN: 2hrs 20mins


  • 2
    lbs potatoes, scrubbed
  • 2
    lbs onions, chopped
  • 5
    tablespoons summer savory (more if desired, I use about 10)
  • 12
    cup butter
  • 2
    teaspoons salt (or to taste)
  • 12
    teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
  • 12
    cup milk
  • 8
    slices bread, diced
  • 2
    tablespoons dark soya sauce (optional, this was never in the original recipe but we like it better with it)


  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan (big enough to hold the onions) add the onions and 4 tablespoons of the summer savoury.
  • Simmer at a low heat, stirring every five minutes or so until the onions are very tender, this takes an hour or two.
  • Cook the potatoes until very tender, drain and mash with the milk.
  • Add the onion mixture, the bread, 1 tablespoon summer savoury, salt, pepper and optionally the soya sauce.
  • Mix well (I just use the potato masher and keep mashing until well combined).
  • At the point I taste the mixture and adjust salt and pepper and start adding more summer savoury until it's where I like it.
