1 tablespoon of olive oil

400g of gluten-free sausagemeat

The turkey liver, chopped (optional)

8 small leaves of fresh sage, chopped

8 sprigs of fresh thyme, leaves picked

125ml of good cider

50ml of water

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat the olive oil in a pan and fry the sausagemeat until cooked. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. If there is a lot of fat left in the pan, drain some off.
  2. If using, add the turkey liver to the pan and fry until cooked. Remove and set aside. Add the onions and apple to the pan and fry until slightly soft.
  3. Put everything into a large bowl and mix together thoroughly, adding the cider and water. Drink the rest of the cider while greasing an ovenproof dish. Spoon the stuffing into the dish and pop into a preheated oven at 190 degrees Celsius or Gas Mark 5 for 30-35 minutes, or until crispy on top.
