Sausagemeat Stuffing with Bacon and Dates

2. Add the onions and fry for 6-8 minutes, until soft and lightly golden but not browned.
3. Add the turkey liver, if using, to the pan and cook for another minute. Tip into a bowl and leave to go completely cold.
4. Add the sausagemeat, dates, herbs, breadcrumbs and nutmeg. Season and mix
