  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 200g dried white breadcrumbs
  • 200g bone marrow meat (ask your butcher for this), cut into 2cm dice
  • small bunch thyme, leaves finely chopped
  • small bunch parsley, roughly chopped


  1. Heat the oil in a pan. Fry the onion for 8-10 mins until softened, tip out into a bowl and leave to cool. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the onions along with some seasoning, and mix well. Spoon into an ovenproof serving dish, about 22 x 12cm. This is a fairly loose stuffing, so press it down with the back of a spoon if you want a closer texture. Cook for 35 mins until the stuffing is dark golden brown with crisp bits on top.
