    • 1 lumpy apple
    • 1 white onion finely diced

    • 1 bunch sage
    • 10 walnuts
    • Splash of white wine
    • Long pour of olive oil

    1. Start by finely slicing onion and garlic. IN a deep pan fry onion and garlic in a generous amount of olive oil and a knob of butter. Add salt and pepper to onions. When onions are translucent add chopped sage, fry for 15 seconds, then add apple, then add breadcrumbs, splash of wine and more olive oil if it looks too dry. Taste for seasoning.
