Apricot & Chestnut Stuffing

Apricot & Chestnut Stuffing

A delicious stuffing which is the perfect accompaniment for turkey and ham!


  • 75g (2.5 oz) Connacht Gold Creamery or Softer butter
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 225g (8oz) fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 225g (8oz) pre-soaked dried apricots, cut into small pieces
  • 225g (8oz)  chestnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 medium egg
  • Large bunch of parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C/gas mark 6 (390° F ). Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the onion and sweat until soft but not coloured. Add enough breadcrumbs to get a moist consistency, then fold in the chopped apricots and chestnuts.
  2. Beat in the egg to bind the mixture before adding the parsley and a pinch of salt and pepper. Turn into a buttered, shallow oven-proof dish and bake for 25-30 minutes until crisp and hot right through.
