    medium-sized marrow
    1 small onion
    200 g (7 oz) minced beef extra lean
    100 g syn free pork sausage meat or 100 g extra lean minced beef
    1 tbsp chopped parsley
    1 tbsp chopped chives
    1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
    salt and pepper
    1 egg
    250 ml cheese sauce(optional But adds lots of syns)


    1. Halve the marrow lengthways and scoop out the seeds.No need to peel.

    2. Lay each half side by side, in a frylight greased, large, shallow casserole.

    3. Skin and chop the onion finely or grate it. Put into a basin with the beef, sausage-meat, parsley, chives, Worcestershire sauce, and seasoning. Mix well.

    4. Beat the egg until liquid and use it to bind the mixture.

    5. Divide the stuffing between each marrow half. Cover the dish and bake in a moderate oven, 180°C, Gas 4, for 1 hour if adding cheese sauce. If not then cook covered for 1 hour and 20 mins.

    6. Strain off most of the liquid in the casserole.

    7. Pour the cheese sauce over the marrow and bake for a further 20 minutes, uncovered, or until the sauce is golden-brown

    8.If not using cheese sauce you could make gravy with granules to pour over.
