Christmas is fast approaching and families all around the world are preparing for a wonderful Christmas dinner.

With the hardships of last year, coupled with the fact the world was in lockdown during Christmas 2021, a lot of families did not get the opportunity to come together as they usually would. This year, it seems that families are very much looking forward to re-uniting again and enjoying what for many is the most important meal of the year.

Christmas dinner might differ depending on family traditions, but one key ingredient we guarantee will be used in so many favourite dishes is the onion. You can find it in stuffing, gravy, bread sauce, chutney, etc.

And to celebrate the festive season we include a wonderful recipe for a must have at every Christmas dinner, the very scrumptious Sage and Onion stuffing balls:

Ingredients you will need:

  • Butter 25g – Breadcrumbs 250g
  • Olive oil 2tbsp – Parsley and Thyme
  • Onions 2, finely dices – Eggs 2 large
  • Sage ½ small bunch, leaves picked and chopped

Step 1: using the butter and oil, fry the onions until soft and clear. Tip into a bowl and mix in the rest of the ingredients and seasoning and combine well.

Step 2: heat your oven to 220C. Roll your mixture into balls and drizzle with a bit more oil and bake for about 20 minutes until golden and crisp.

Will you be trying this recipe this Christmas? You can also try other variations of this recipe by adding other ingredients like chestnuts or cranberry.

M&P Engineering’s Large Onion Peeling machine uses a dry peeling process, resulting in no waste slurry. It can peel, top and tail onions with diameters between 45mm and 115mm using its self-adjusting floating knife assemblies. The peeler uses compressed air to remove the skin, resulting in optimum end-product appearance.

The large onion peeler has a raw material input rate of 750kg per hour when working at optimum speed but can be adjusted to suit the needs of the processor.
