Would you like to microwave paxo stuffing and find a simple, yet delicious way to cook stuffing for your roast dinners.

Well, you have come to the right place. Today we are going to show you how to make paxo sage and onion stuffing. Both as a dish of stuffing and as sage and onion stuffing balls.

Microwave Paxo Stuffing

Paxo Stuffing

I always remember the paxo stuffing from childhood. If you were making a roast chicken dinner, then you always had a box of paxo stuffing and you would quickly mix it up with some boiling water, then bake it in the oven.

When I met my hubby, as a chef he was disgusted that I would make stuffing from paxo and told me to make my own with sausage meat. Which I did and I perfected it and now normally make slow cooker stuffing for turkey at Christmas time and in a hurry on a Sunday I usually do air fryer sage and onion stuffing balls.

So, when a reader asked me if I could transform a box of paxo sage and onion stuffing mix to the microwave, it was like going back to been 18 again and so much fun!

Me and Sofia made a bowl of paxo stuffing (so easy) and also had fun making sage and onion stuffing balls.

What Is Stuffing Made Of?

Stuffing is traditionally made of sausage meat with bread or breadcrumbs. There are many variations such as adding dried sage and some thinly diced onion to make sage and onion stuffing.

Over in the US, stuffing is usually made of sausages with the skin removed rather than classic sausage meat. And also, in the US it is often called dressing rather than stuffing.

Can You Make Paxo Stuffing In Advance?

Yes, you can. You can make paxo stuffing ahead of time and then reheat it for when you need it.

Or you can prepare the sage and onion stuffing, maybe make it into balls and then microwave it when you are almost ready to eat dinner.

How Far In Advance Can I Make Paxo Stuffing?

You can make your stuffing up to 3 days in advance. If its Christmas time for example and you are prepping all your Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve, then you can make the stuffing then, and then just reheat it when you are ready. It’s a fantastic way to take the stress out of Christmas.

How Do You Mix Paxo Stuffing?

I find the easiest way to mix paxo stuffing is to use a large mixing bowl. That way you don’t make as much mess and then it can sit there in the bowl until you are ready to microwave.

Alternatively you can mix paxo stuffing in a measuring jug and then you can use the same measuring jug to measure out the exact amount of

How To Make Paxo Stuffing Better?

Have you ever heard the saying that everything tastes better with butter? You just think of so many of your favourite foods and then remember, that it tastes so good because of the butter.

Well, that same rule applies to a paxo stuffing recipe. Just by adding a bit of butter to the mix before you cook the stuffing in the microwave can make such a big difference.

Then you can also add in some extra seasoning too, though of course, its not essential.

  1. 5 stars
    A great way to cook stuffing. I used a packet stuffing from the US as i could not find the Paxo one and it turned out lovely and saved a lot of time from making it myself.

  2. Hello from the USA. I ordered 8 boxes of Paxo Sage & Onion stuffing mix from Amazon.com. I followed your recipe, converting 400 ml to 1 2/3 cups. The stuffing came out too soggy, approximately the consistency of oatmeal (If I recall, you call it porridge in the UK). The only thing I can think of is that perhaps the stuffing box I used is smaller than the one you used in your recipe. The box I bought is 5.5 inches high and contains 0.13-Ounce of stuffing mix. The box says “makes up to 6 stuffing balls”. Is that the amount of stuffing mix your recipe is based on?

  3. I use this all the time, with pork chops and chicken. This box does come in two different sizes large and small ,so read the liquid amount on the box.
