  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Heat the olive oil and butter in a frying pan over low heat. Add the onion, and cook gently for about 5 minutes until soft. Stir in the bread crumbs and sage, and cook for a few minutes. Remove from the heat, and allow to cool.
  2. Stir the beaten egg into the bread crumb mixture, and season well with salt and pepper. Spoon into a buttered dish, and bake for about 20 minutes.
  3. Warm the pita breads, then slice open the pocket and stuff with the pork, a spoonful of bread stuffing, and some applesauce. Serve immediately with a crisp salad.
