Sausage Stuffed Marrow recipe

Preparation Time: 20 minutes | Cooking Time: 1 hours

A simple recipe perfect for the whole family - in this recipe, sausages combine with veggies and flavourings before being stuffed into marrow shells. Serve as they are, or with some roast potatoes or wedges.


  • 1 marrow
  • 4 sausages, skins removed - use flavoured pork sausages or chorizo if you like
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 x 400g tin tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp. dried red chilli flakes
  • 3 tbsp. oil
  • 25g breadcrumbs
  • 50g grated parmesan
  • 1 tbsp. freshly chopped basil


  1. Trim the ends off the marrow, slice in half, scoop out the seeds and scoop out the flesh, leaving behind a shell of marrow with about 2cm of flesh. Chop the marrow flesh.

  2. Dice the onion and mince the garlic cloves. Heat oil in a frying pan and cook the sausage meat until starting to brown, breaking it up with your wooden spoon. Add the chilli, salt and pepper, along with the onion, marrow and garlic. Cook until the onion is softened over a medium heat, around 5 more minutes.

  3. Stir in the tomatoes and simmer for 5 minutes. Take off the heat and stir in the breadcrumbs, parmesan and basil. Stuff into the marrow shells and bake for 30 minutes at 200C or until golden, tender and bubbling. Serve hot from the oven.

If you like, sprinkle with extra breadcrumbs and cheese 5 minutes before the end of cooking for a crunchy, golden finish. Recipe serves 4.
