Easy Sausage Meat Stuffing

Easy Sausage Meat Stuffing is the perfect side dish to any roast dinner. It is incredibly simple to make and will take your roast dinner to the next level. 

I was never really a fan of stuffing. It was something I would often rather not have on my plate when eating a roast to allow for more room for roast potatoes! My view towards stuffing changed when I tried my Father-in-law’s stuffing. 

Mr Curly and I met when I was at university going my undergrad course and he was studying for his PhD. He had recently moved back home whilst studying which meant that at weekends I would travel down the motorway to see him. Ignoring the fact his parent’s house was a lot cleaner than my uni house was the majority of the time, I traveled to him because quite early into our relationship we got our first dog Izzy. You might remember her as the buttercream lover I have mentioned before!

Inheriting a family recipe 

Like lots of people, Mr Curly’s parents would cook a roast on a Sunday. I remember always being offered the meat first (usually chicken); because they are lovely people and thought the guests should get the best meat. The best meat in most of their opinions was the breast meat so I felt obliged to take some. It was months down the line that I told them I actually preferred the dark meat! 

The most memorable part of these roasts was Mr Curly’s Dad’s stuffing. I don’t remember having stuffing with sausage meat before. My Mum made an oatmeal stuffing which is traditional in Aberdeen and sage and onion stuffing; but never stuffing with sausage meat. 

The sausage meat not only adds flavour but also moisture. So many stuffing balls you see look so dry and like you’d need a litre of gravy to be able to eat them. This Easy Sausage Meat Stuffing is the complete opposite. 

What makes this so easy is that you can mix it all together and let it cook in the oven. There is no need to form into balls which is vital time you can use doing something else when preparing a roast! Plus you’re going to want a lot of this Easy Sausage Meat Stuffing so a large spoonful is better than a small ball!

What to serve this Easy Sausage Meat Stuffing with

I’d serve this with any roast dinner, but definitely for Christmas lunch! Make sure you make enough for everyone to have plenty, plus leftovers for a cold turkey and stuffing sandwich! If you’re catering for people like Mr Curly who are stuffing fanatics, you can easily add another pack of stuffing mix to help stretch the sausage meat further. 

At Christmas especially, you can get some delicious sausage meats with added flavours such as cranberries and honey. Obviously you could add these flavours yourself, but this is called Easy Sausage Meat Stuffing after all so you will be forgiven to buy the sausage meat with added flavours should you wish to. You can also change the stuffing mix that you use. For example an apple and sage stuffing mix would pair really well with roast pork.

  • 375 g sausage meat
  • 170 g sage & onion stuffing mix
  • 400 ml boiling water
  • 1 egg
  • 30 g unsalted butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC (fan assisted 200ºC non fan)

  2. Add all of the ingredients apart from the butter to an oven proof dish (approx 20x20cm). Mix thoroughly until all of the ingredients are combined and then level the top 

  3. Cut up the butter and place it across the top of the stuffing. Cook for 50 - 60 minutes until the top is golden brown and crisp

Recipe Notes

If the meat you are cooking requires a different temperature, adjust the cooking time for the stuffing. If the temperature is lower, cook for 10 minutes or so longer. If it is higher, cook on a lower shelf for 45 minutes or until the sausage meat is cooked through.

    My other half always makes roast on Sundays, and usually he makes the classic sage and onion stuffing. I’m looking forward to showing him this recipe, as I think he would love the sausage addition!

  2. Lucy Parissi

    Your father-in-law must be proud as punch to see this lovely recipe inspired by his sausagemeat stuffing appearing on your blog.

      Well apparently it lead to his sister saying the recipe was actually their Mum’s and not his! So maybe I should have called it a family recipe!

    I love stuffing made with sausage meat and that’s the kind I usually make if I’m making stuffing. I have to admit I like to make it into little balls though as we love the extra crispy bits you get on the outside!

  4. Florence

    I thought this was a treasured recipe. Instead it is about buying a ready mix packet from a shop and following the instructions! Can neither you nor Curly chap an onion or some sage leaves?

    A very pretty blog page, but a real waste of my energy on Boxing day looking for a stuffing recipe variation.

    Style over content

      Sorry that you feel this way Florence. I didn’t claim that this recipe was fancy, but instead an easy recipe that anyone would be able to make. Some people look for easy recipes that include quick tricks to slightly elevate ingredients many of us have in the cupboard. I hope you can find other recipes on my blog that you like better. Thank you for stopping by.
