Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
To make the stuffing, place all ingredients in a bowl and mix until thoroughly combined (at this stage you can cook off a little of the stuffing to check the seasoning)
Stuff the cavity of the bird with the stuffing. Lightly drizzle the skin with olive oil and season with salt and pepper
Place in a small ovenproof dish. Toss the potatoes with olive oil and salt and add them to the dish. Place in the oven for 20 minutes
Blanch the sprouts in boiling water for 3 minutes, then plunge into ice water. Drain the sprouts, toss in a little oil and add to the roasting tray after 20 minutes of cooking
After the poussin has been cooking for 45 minutes, pierce the thickest part of the thigh– if the juices run clear, it is ready. If the juices are bloody give it extra time, checking every 5 minutes until it's ready
Turn the bird upside down to rest for 10 minutes before serving
