I love homemade stuffing with my Christmas lunch. I love it on turkey sandwiches on Christmas evening. It just tastes so much better than shop brought packet stuffing that you add water to rehydrate.
For my stuffing I use:
- 2 packets of sausage meat
- Pack of pre cooked and peeled chestnuts
- Dried cranberries
- Fresh breadcrumbs
- 2 onions
- Streaky bacon
Finely chop the onions and cook with a little butter
Place the sausage eat in a large bowl
Chop the nuts and add to the sausage meat along with cranberries and bread crumbs
Mix well. Best way to do this is with your hands.
Added the cooked onions and mix.
Grease a baking tin and line with streaky bacon leaving some overlapping the sides.
Pour the meat mixture in to the tin and press down well.
Bring the bacon over the top and cover entirely.
Cook in the oven until bacon is golden.
I always make this in advance and freeze. Remove from freezer late Christmas Eve and warm through in the oven just before Christmas Lunch is served.
