Following on from my earlier recipe Red Onion and Cranberry Festive Relish I really did have to make a low calorie, fat and carb stuffing. Quite a challenge – well it was before Lo-Dough came along!
I have been thinking about this for a while but never got around to experimenting. It has always been in the back of my mind – can you make breadcrumbs with Lo-Dough ?
Of course you can and it’s delicious too!
Here’s how it’s done!
Prep time 15 mins
Cooking time 30 mins in total
Pre heat oven to Gas 6, electric 200, fan 180
1 piece of Lo-Dough or apx 28gms of leftover pieces cut with a pair of kitchen scissors into 1cm pieces
1 tbsp dried sage
1 stock cube (I used chicken)
1 egg beaten
1/2 Onion finely chopped
Using a food processor, blitz the Lo-Dough into breadcrumbs and place in a bowl with sage and crumbled stock cube
In a non stick frying pan over a low to medium heat gently fry the onion until soft. Add a tbsp of water and cook for a further minute
Add the onions to the bowl and stir. Add the egg and stir.
Using your hands divide the mixture into 4 or 5 portions. Shape each portion into a small ball pressing firmly round and round in your hands until it holds together
Place on a baking tray sprayed with frylight. Spray the stuffing balls with frylight and place in the oven. Bake for 10 mins. Serve
